ryanintheus Life and it's lessons... I worked really hard through the winter and especially in the spring to be in the best hiking shape of my life, ready for an onslaught of long hikes and camping over summer. I couldn't have been more excited! Then life decides to teach me lesson. Right as the weather in Seattle came good and the snow started to melt I went on a routine training run and injured my calf. Sadly it's not gotten any better and I've watched as all my friends spend their weekends in the mountains having a great time. Life lesson; let go of expectations and find the silver lining. The silver lining for me has been I've been able to pour my energy into my new business and so far, it's looking good. Fingers crossed the momentum keeps up. At least when I'm working I don't feel like I'm missing out on the mountains because I can't be there anywhere. But I can dream. And today I'm dreaming of the forest! . . . . . . . . . #wheretofindme #darlingescapes #travelstagram #wondermore #nomadstories #meetthemoment #travelblogger #keepitcontagious #igtravel #takemebackpacking #roundtheworld #travelholic #travelgram #tripstagram #dream_spots #travelbreak #athomeintheworld #iamatraveler #travelgram #travel #wanderlust #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #mytinyatlas #humanpoweredadventures

ryanintheus Life can take many twists and turns and sometimes you just don't know what's right around the corner. I recently launched my own business, Ryanintheus LLC - Marketing and Influencer Services, and I've found out that the uncertainty of business ownership is a really interesting thing to manage from a mental perspective. The truth is, it takes a ton of courage, and courage is a wonderful thing to discover you have. The ability to know you're afraid but do it anyway. To believe in yourself. Many years ago I founded a nonprofit which was ultimately one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. I've never felt more alive professionally than running that nonprofit and now I find myself in that same mental space. I'm really not sure what's around the corner for me professionally, but if it's as great as what I saw coming around the corner in this pic I'll take it! πŸ˜‰ Mt Rainier in all her splendor. All the best to you if you are also believing in yourself and being courageous in your life. πŸ™ . . . . . . . . #goatworthy #travel #ic_adventures #wondermore #northwestisbest #nomadstories #pnwisbeautiful #thehikemovement #meetthemoment #livewashington #departedoutdoors #theoutbound #choosemountains #climblife #backpackingculture #in2nature #ventureout #keepitcontagious #wanderwashington #humanpoweredadventures #getoutstayout #takemebackpacking #theNWadventure #ourpnw #camptrend #washingtonexplored #wildernessnation #wildernesspeople #stayandwander #werehikers

ryanintheus "Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters." Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories. . One of my favorite passages of writing. But this is not a river in Montana, it's a river in Washington, but all great rivers bring this quote to mind. Thank you to @skagittours for showing it to me! πŸ™ . . . . . . . . #travel #travelblogger #wanderlust #jetsetter #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #travelawesome #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #getoutside #alwaysgo #WhereITravel #instapassport #traveltheworld #travelmore #passionpassport #letsgoeverywhere #getoutstayout #letswander #SkagitTours #ncascades #SeeSkagit #SeattleCityLight #VisitSkagit #SkagitMagic

ryanintheus "It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for the subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. . There's something so simple, yet so powerful and majestic about a carpet of trees. My weary spirit is always renewed, and my heart captured, by scenes like this. Anyone else feel this way? . . . . . . . . . #goatworthy #travel #ic_adventures #wondermore #northwestisbest #nomadstories #pnwisbeautiful #thehikemovement #meetthemoment #livewashington #departedoutdoors #theoutbound #choosemountains #climblife #backpackingculture #in2nature #ventureout #keepitcontagious #wanderwashington #humanpoweredadventures #getoutstayout #takemebackpacking #theNWadventure #ourpnw #camptrend #washingtonexplored #wildernessnation #wildernesspeople #stayandwander #werehikers

ryanintheus "And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul." - John Muir. . I love this quote and it's so incredibly true. Last week I did a solo hike up the old Mailbox trail just out of Seattle, 4000 feet in 2.5 miles. It's an incredible hike, a classic around these here parts, as they say. It feels like every step is over or around millions of tree roots, you go up, up and up, through the clouds and then above them. It's the perfect solo hike that tests your mind and your body. I felt a little foggy myself as I headed out but by the time I reached blue sky I'd let go of what my mind was holding onto and I felt connected and fulfilled. That Mr Muir guy definitely put some good words together. πŸ˜‰ . . . . . . . . . . #travel #travelblogger #wanderlust #jetsetter #jetset #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #travelawesome #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #getoutside #alwaysgo #WhereITravel #instapassport #traveltheworld #travelmore #passionpassport #travelinstyle #letsgoeverywhere #getoutstayout #letswander #travelingishappiness #goatworthy #mailbox #pnw

ryanintheus "America was not built on fear, America was built on courage, on imagination and unbeatable determination to do the job at hand." Harry S Truman. . It's time we remember those leaders from the past and the messages they left us, for they have left us the guiding lights to show us the way through this current situation. Courage not fear!

ryanintheus Some days aren't spectacular blue bird days, but they find a way to show you their beauty in different ways. This scene captured me as much for what you can see as what you can't. The flowers show you beauty but the clouds give you glimpses of the true beauty that hides below them. I've met a few people in my life where I've seen a glimpse of beauty on the outside but over time they've shown me their true beauty which was residing inside them. It's a great reminder to not judge a book by its cover and that beauty isn't always the most obvious thing about someone. . . . . . . . . #travel #travelblogger #wanderlust #jetsetter #jetset #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #travelawesome #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #getoutside #alwaysgo #WhereITravel #instapassport #traveltheworld #travelmore #passionpassport #travelinstyle #letsgoeverywhere #getoutstayout #letswander #travelingishappiness #goatworthy #mailbox #pnw

ryanintheus For all the mountains that exist in the great PNW there is one who holds so many people's hearts, including mine. The majestic Mt Rainier looks great in any light, but she is resplendent at sunset. Can't wait to get back to hiking her very soon, it's been too long!

ryanintheus I can't even... There so much goodness in this pic it was hard to take in while standing there looking at it. The Diablo Lake Dam rarely has overflow but this season it's been going for a month due to the big snow fall this winter and I happened upon it at the right time to see this beautiful rainbow. The power, the beauty, the colors, the nature in this scene was overwhelming. I have to thank @skagittours, @ncascades and Seattle City Light for facilitating this experience. And on my birthday no less! . . . . . . . . #travel #travelblogger #wanderlust #jetsetter #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #travelawesome #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #getoutside #alwaysgo #WhereITravel #instapassport #traveltheworld #travelmore #passionpassport #letsgoeverywhere #getoutstayout #letswander #SkagitTours #ncascades #SeeSkagit #SeattleCityLight #VisitSkagit #SkagitMagic

ryanintheus I had the distinct privilege of being invited by @skagittours to see the Skagit Hydroelectric Project by Seattle City Light last week and see the amazing work they're doing producing clean energy while also partnering with the @ncascades institute to protect the area and educate people about the beautiful North Cascades National Park. This shot was taken on Diablo lake and for any folks who like secret camp sites there are a number of amazing sites on the lake only accessible from the water.

ryanintheus One of my favorite photos with me in it, but I don't think it's easy to understand from this pic what's actually going on here. I'm about 100 yards into an ice cave inside Mendenhall Glacier, at the junction of two rivers, one coming from in front of me, the other from my left, both exiting together to my right. At the junction of these rivers the cave has collapsed allowing the sun to shine down onto me and illuminating the ice all around me. There is water dripping from everywhere, if you look closely you can see a veil around me of dripping water. It's obviously not a spot you want to hang out in for too long but it was simply incredible. Can't recommend exploring this place enough, it's magical. Just be aware of the danger, these ice caves can collapse at any point. . . . . . . . . #travel #travelblogger #wanderlust #jetsetter #jetset #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #travelawesome #mytinyatlas #finditliveit #getoutside #alwaysgo #WhereITravel #instapassport #traveltheworld #travelmore #passionpassport #travelinstyle #letsgoeverywhere #getoutstayout #letswander #travelingishappiness #Alaska #Juneau #Mendenhall

ryanintheus There are plenty of things that run through your mind as you hike a trail but one thing that always comes up when I'm in nature is gratitude. How lucky are we to have the opportunity to head into the mountains on a weekend and walk a trail like this? Snow capped mountains against a blue sky, topping a sea of green and surrounded by beautiful flowers, not frigging bad! I'm grateful for where I live, for the ability to physically hike into these places, for great company and conversation, for the wealth of life that provides these opportunities. What are you grateful for? . . . . . . . . . #wheretofindme #darlingescapes #travelstagram #wondermore #nomadstories #meetthemoment #travelblogger #keepitcontagious #igtravel #takemebackpacking #roundtheworld #travelholic #travelgram #tripstagram #dream_spots #travelbreak #athomeintheworld #iamatraveler #travelgram #travel #wanderlust #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #mytinyatlas #humanpoweredadventures

ryanintheus Sometimes you're driving along singing a song without a care in the world and you chance upon a beautiful scene but you have to be somewhere by a certain time. Do you stop or do you keep going? You stop of course, and you breath in the beauty nature provides for us. Nature was on point last night on my drive from Seattle to Leavenworth. . . . . . . . . #wheretofindme #darlingescapes #travelstagram #wondermore #nomadstories #meetthemoment #travelblogger #keepitcontagious #igtravel #takemebackpacking #roundtheworld #travelholic #travelgram #tripstagram #dream_spots #travelbreak #athomeintheworld #iamatraveler #travelgram #travel #wanderlust #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #traveltheword #globetrotter #mytinyatlas #humanpoweredadventures
