Missing the west coast, where the fog and mist meet the salty spray of the sea. 🌊

My last adventure of the summer felt more like a misadventure. I wound up way closer to a bear than I ever care to be again, somehow completely lost the trail going through a scree field (nerve-wracking), my phone screen shattered, and despite the sunny forecast, Rainier does what she wants and was decidedly Not Out.
I escaped the Tatoosh wilderness relieved to be in tact and headed for the more familiar trails of Paradise. At least the marmots were up to their silly antics, and I got to chat with some lovely folks who were also hoping for a glimpse of the mountain. After hours of staking out one of my favorite viewpoints while Rainier stayed completely socked in, I decided to call it a day. I stopped at the ranger station on the way out for an updated forecast, and they said more clouds and showers.
But I was not willing to admit defeat, so I turned the car around and drove back to one last spot to see if the clouds might move. Eventually the top of the mountain peeked through, then hid again, and I decided to wait it out, to the bitter end if necessary! After two more hours, just as the sun was setting, the clouds finally cleared and Her Majesty came into view. Cue my traditional last-hike-of-summer cry, the thrill of seeing Rainier AT LAST, and getting to say a proper goodbye + thanks for the summer magic—until I’m back in the winter with snowshoes.~
Modro nebo in vrhovi gora so lepi prizori. Pa vendar dajmo pohvalo tudi temle puhcem beline, ki je prilepijo na bližnje vrhove. No vsaj dokler nas ne zavijejo v meglo... ☁️☁️
Pa tudi v megli je cilj dosežen in nova pot obkljukana. Samo še slika in @tinka.planinka pa je dan uspešen.

As I get older I relate more & more to the saying ‘If only there were more hours in a day’ 🙏The past couple of weeks have been nothing but go-go-go! Training, racing, working full time, family visits... & i’m currently sat here ‘taking a break’ from packing for another weekend away supporting Chris at the Golden Ultra (oh & racing in one of the events too). Don’t get me wrong I LOVE being on the go, I live for it, buttttt I wish there were a couple of extra hours between finishing everything in a day & actually going to sleep to unwind and de-stress. Seriously, how do people work, have babies, maintain a social life & get outside to train?! Fill me in on your hectic life secrets please! 🤦🏼♀️ #busybee
Since last week, when I ran at home, I was followed by creeper with a knife I’ve now recruited this lil boog to run with me while I’m in md. He’s very dumb, trips a lot, and barks ferociously at little kids on bikes😘but he also barks insanely at anyone who tries to come near me so we make a good team😂
