Morning! I didn’t take many photos this weekend, so instead of a full weekend recap I’ll just share some pictures from yesterday’s hike! My brother is back in town briefly before heading off to grad school; he spent the last month doing a through-hike of the Colorado Trail. So cool.

Weekend

Good morning, my friends! This weekend definitely had a theme: social and outdoorsy! Here’s what we were up to. :) On Friday, Matt and I kept things low key since we knew the rest of the weekend would be busy!

Hiking New Mexico

When I have the opportunity to get in a beautiful hike – especially in 70 degree and sunny weather with no humidity – I jump at it. When we were planning out our travel for the Brooks Altitude Camp trip (<—check out that post first if you missed it), a few of us decided that rather than flying home first thing on Sunday, we’d stick Continue Reading …

Summiting Mt. Rainier in Summer

Hey guys! Since my brother Steve’s last guest post about his epic winter ascent of Mt. Hood was such a hit, he’s back to share another guest post, this time about summiting Mt. Rainier last summer!

Run + Hike
