Number 1 lesson you learn when you spend a lot of time in the outdoors: the weather may (and probably will) change. The weather forecast was clear for our camp spot this morning but we woke up to a white out (not surprising really with the cold nights and warm days). Nature teaches us to let go of control. We can’t predict how nature is going to act for us, but we take the risk anyway as there’s always some form of beauty to be seen. I think this is transferable to life - you can’t always predict or control the outcome but you can put yourself out there and if the outcome isn’t what you wanted there is always something to take from it. Something beautiful that you’ve learnt instead. It would be crazy for me to never go on a wild camp in case the weather changed as I would miss out on all the perfect mornings and other amazing stuff. So it’s crazy to not go after what you want in life in case it doesn’t happen. You’ll still find beauty in it somewhere even if it isn’t where you thought you would find it 🧡 #wildcamping #wildcamp #wildcampinguk #british _adventures #womenwhohike #hikersofinstagram #tentview #visitdartmoor #visitdevon #igersdevon #adventuregirls #backpacking #femalebackpacker #roamgreatbritain #hikebritain #neverstopexploring #sheexplores #getoutside #outdoorwomen #outdoorlife #adventure #landscapesofbritain #tentlife #wildwomenuk #loveherwild #lovehiking #explore #yourhikes #femaleempowerment #friendswhohike

Day 86 — 926.2 miles in: The day I learned to outrun lightning. It’s amazing how quickly a bright blue sky can devolve into chaos. One minute I was snapping photos of these beautiful alpine lakes, the next a huge storm dominated the horizon. Thunderheads charged forward like an army of giants, shaking the mountains with their booming stride. I ran toward camp, harried by lightning flashes just behind me. I scrambled into my tent amidst earsplitting thunder, rapidly inflating my mattress in a vane attempt to believe it could insulate me from the tangible electricity snapping through the air—all the while industriously ignoring the two metal poles holding up my shelter. After a few minutes of cowering I regained my courage and shimmied out into the building storm. Inky darkness stained the sky, slashed by thin lines of brilliant plasma darting between the thunderheads. I watched the storm build until my nerve gave out and I fled back to my tent and it’s false sense of security. Earlier, I’d felt exhausted, with my feet and ankles destroyed by the climbing—but no more! I crackled with electric excitement. I played Bach to accompany the thunder, creating a marvelous moment of frenetic energy I channeled into a new work of fiction that’d long been on my mind, ending the day grinning maniacally and enmeshed in thrumming chaos. . . . . #pct #hiker #reflection #reflectionphotography #thruhiking #backpacking #landscapephotography #natural _release #mountainlake #naturephotography #alpinelake #lakephotography #reflection #photography #explore #exploring #alotofmilesandsmiles #nature #travel #theoutpostcalifornia #icelandscape #icelake #bestoftheusa _reflections #wildcalifornia

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes “Plan B” is meant to be. After having had a trip planned in the Eastern Sierra of California with my friend Martina since March of this year, the National Forest Closed and our trip was cancelled almost last minute. Within a week we came up with “Plan B” which was in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The trip was incredible. Craggy peaks and fall color greeted us along with clear blue skies. I’m looking forward to sharing this adventure with you in an upcoming video.

I think it’s safe to say that summer is coming to an end. Can’t say I’m upset about it because I’m ready for fall colors 🧡 . . . #alpinelake #alpinelakeswilderness #backpacking #eaglecapwilderness #getoutside #optoutside #hiking #womenwhohike #wallowas #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwadventures
