Epic views from St Marks Summit before the forest fires. The sky is covered in layers of smoke, and the visibility is awful. It is going to be awhile before we can see beautiful scenery like this again. Our province could use a big rainfall 😔

I’ve been fortunate to not have many low days on this trip but yesterday was one of the more questionable ones. Nothing drastically wrong but just a comedy of errors from the start - a terrible Airbnb (false marketing at its best), wasted our morning doing laps of Porto with our luggage as we failed to find any storage, transport delays, power outage in a stinking hot hostel, >3 hours sleep, etc. We ended up laughing it off as it was just one fail after another.
BUT - today’s a new day and we’re flying off to the Azores islands for more mountains, volcanos and hike hunting so I’m a happy gal. Throwing one back to our coastal hike at Praia da Adraga near the town of Sintra in Portugal which was nothing but lush beaches and cliffs for days. Beware more #naturefroth and instaspam to come. #youvebeenwarned#portugal#hiking#travelgram
Berg Lake, three things to do.
That feeling when you wake up in your warm cosy sleeping bag, crisp cool mountain air lightly touching your skin. It doesn’t get any better than this. Waking up with the sun rising above Mount Robson…this is what life should be like.
Read in my new blog what I did around Berg Lake during my 3 day stay! #backpackbren#golive#exploremore
“What’s the greatest lesson a woman should learn (on their 24th birthday)?
That since day one. She’s already had everything she needs within herself. It’s the world that convinced her she did not.”

Happiest of birthdays to this incredibly brave and resilient woman who I’m lucky to also call my little sis and best friend @mk_mcneil! In 2 weeks she will be moving across the Atlantic to teach English in Valencia, Spain 🇪🇸💃🏻 for the next year. She has no idea how much I’m going to miss her, and how proud I am of her for living out her dream. It takes a lot of guts to move abroad solo, and she’s got more guts than anyone I know. Can’t believe you are 24, love you to the moon! 💫🧡👯♀️
Seeing this lake has been on my bucket list since moving to Washington and did it ever live up to the hype. Getting some miles under my feet and enjoying the alpine views always get me feeling like myself.
Humans can do some pretty neat tricks but we can’t grow to be 35 feet tall.

“I wanted movement and not a calm course of existence. I wanted excitement and gander and the chance to sacrifice myself for my life. I felt in myself a superabundance of energy which found no outlet in our quiet life.” - Leo Tolstoy, Family Happiness #womenwhohike
it's a dream and I don't want to wake up. ✨ 12.5 miles, 5 hours, and 28k steps ✨
Blanca Lake is my favourite hike in Washington because of this gorgeous blue water. Plus, it's super challenging.
With the road washout, it adds another 2 miles just to get to the trailhead (+4 miles total). I made decent time, but honestly I got my ass kicked.
Don’t let Instagram fool you—it was not glamorous. There were SO many aggressive and annoying biting flies for more than 70% of the hike and I did a lot of squealing and maybe even teared up, but I made it! 🙌🏽
Anyway, will try to hike it once more before the end of hiking season this year. Must. bring. floaties 🦄 🍩
