Headed down off Macomb Plateau this afternoon. This morning we started in the snow high in the background.  #womenwhohike  #ilovealaska #alaskarange  @karitraa #optoutside #womenwhoexplorealaska #womenwhoexplore @womenwhoexplore @womenwhoexplore_alaska
Warm summer weather has me thinking of the hot spring slush days and riding in tank tops. #datassthough #tunnelfordays #polaris #rmk #174 #treeriding #alaskarange #broadpass
All good things must come to an end...in this instance it was the exquisite high pressure system that had sat over the Alaska Range for several weeks. @jessroskelley races the incoming storm during the first ascent of Mount Huntington’s Complete South Ridge. We moved as fast as our emaciated and exhausted bodies would allow, but we lost the sprint against the storm. I’ve never heard of anyone sleeping on Huntington’s summit and I’m damned sure that we are the only people who spent two nights up there!!

The Broken Tooth: today. I love this range. The National Park Service Rangers are the Legitimate stewards of this realm, but my connection and exposure to it runs deep enough that I, too feel like a steward. Or at least a sentry. #denalinationalpark #alaskarange #ilovethisplace #talkeetnaairtaxi
solitude // took a short social media break to enjoy my family, friends and time outside. trying to take in as much green and fresh air as possible before we head back to the desert.

The most comfortable campsite I’ve ever stayed at. A thick layer of wildflowers and mosses underlaid with several feet of spongey peat. No sleeping pad needed.

“Never have I been a blue calm sea, I have always been a storm.”
Fleetwood Mac, ‘Storms’

The last couple days have been a struggle. I miss home and the beach and my people. It’s always centering to come up to my happy place, sit on the chair, and remind myself why I came on this adventure in the first place. People pay tons of money for this view, and I get to live here.  I’m going to climb these mountains someday, I can feel it.

Today I signed a lease agreement on my first rental in Bozeman, MT. The feeling to grow roots gets stronger and stronger the longer you go without them. But then again my heart yearns for going back to these wild places. Looking forward to stronger roots, and another ride in the Alaska Range. •

Commitment is the intertwining of hesitation and fear overshadowed by the belief in a positive outcome. On the South Ridge of Mount Huntington, there were many times when @jessroskelley and I wondered if we had made a grievous error in our decision making. Once we were committed to the ridge, we simply had to place our trust in the weather and each other. There were so many instances, like this moment here, that required us to commit to a weird move with thousands feet of exposure beneath us. On this pitch, Jess had to down climb this technical chimney that I had lead. It was much easier for me on lead since I was essentially on top rope. After many days of moving across settling cornices, 100 feet between hand placed pickets hardly merited a thought. It was a gift to have such a committed partner on the other end of the rope.

more views from our wonderful drive north to fairbanks, including the still-mostly-frozen summit lake. trying to finish up posting these before comicon photos have to take over! 😳🗻 note the cool geographic features of the pingo (cone-shaped ice hill) in the distance and Donnelly Dome, which is a tundra isolate.

The “Great One”- if you look center of the Alaska range. We always stop at the South Denali rest stop, rare to see the full peak, nevertheless still an amazing view of the Chulitna river and majestic range, lesser known Mooses’s Tooth to the right. Last day of our 4 day adventure across the Denali Highway and on our way home. 30 in 30 moment 38 #denalimountain #alaskarange #amazingview #reststop #rvtrip #boysannualtrip

Denali Part 6: The Full Pull
As we pulled our 85 pound sleds up the mountain, specifically between 11k and 14k camp, we got all sorts of looks, comments, and questions asking if we were doing a 'full carry'. Most teams on Denali shuttle gear slowly up the mountain making multiple trips back and forth between camps in order to carry lighter loads and use it as more time to acclimatize. In our case, we figured one long, slow, and strenuous day was better than two or three long, slow, and strenuous days. Not only this but doing full carry's between camp gave us much more flexibility on our climb schedule and went along with our make the most of good weather climbing strategy. Due to these long and hard days we put in pulling all of our gear to the next camp in one go we were able to capitalize on our very luck 6 day window of great weather and get up and down the mountain in that time. If we had gone to shuttling gear, taking multiple days to move up one camp, we would have inevitably ran into bad weather and our summit chances would have gone down tremendously. Moving up quickly to 14k camp allowed us ample time to stay there and wait for the perfect day to go for the summit, fortunately we got that day almost immediately. If you are willing to put in the longer and harder days on the front end of the trip, I think it pays off heavily on the back end when your looking to the summit.

Mountains and glaciers are, in my mind, the world’s most beautiful features. Snow and ice patiently carve through walls of stone. I’ve seen glaciers all over the world, but Alaska’s are easily my favorite. Here, @jessroskelley treads up the concave face of the first tower during our first ascent of Mount Huntington’s Complete South Ridge. The day before, we came to know the serpentine Tokositna Glacier intimately while walking through countless icefalls and crevasse fields to access the ridge. Days later as we progressed on the ridge, we looked down and saw that our tracks had been covered in numerous spots by large avalanches. We hoped with every ounce of our being that we would not have to walk across the Tokositna Glacier again! Luckily we were spared from that fate, but other equally frightening trials awaited us before we reached the safety of base camp after eight days. Does that sound fun?

Alaska was a dream come true. Now, it’s time to share that dream with you all. Right before leaving for Alaska, I gifted myself a Sony alpha 6300. I tried photography with a camera for the first time in Alaska and a lot of the pictures that I clicked are blurred. It doesn’t matter though, all that matters is, It’s been such wonderful experience since then learning more about how to operate my camera and now learning to edit as well. 
I saw my photos for the first time just a few days ago. I couldn’t stop smiling because it made me so so happy. Sometime, wait is worth it. I’ve started my journey, now no coming back. Hope to bring smiles with my pictures. Let’s keep sharing love. .

Camp views in clear weather vs white out. Typical Alaskan weather #alaska #summer #weather #mountains #alaskarange #camping #adventure #explore #wanderlust
It’s supposed to be 102 degrees in Boise tomorrow. About a week after this shot was. Taken we had wind chill peaking in the -40 degree range. I’m honestly not sure which is worse... This day however was warm and clear and edge of the world treated us to some absolutely stunning views over the north east fork of the Kahiltna Glacier which is fondly known as the valley of death due to the large open crevasses and the intimidating seracs hovering over the route. Two days after this photo @colinhaley1 sprinted through this valley on his way to setting the new speed record on Cassin Ridge!

There’s a life lesson in this picture. Before you swipe to the next images, take a look at the roughly 30 peaks shown in this photo and pick the one you think is the highest. Then swipe to see the results. 
The lesson is this: Mt. Foraker is enormous! It’s more than three times larger than Grand Tokosha. Yet because Tokosha is so much closer to us, it obscures almost all of Foraker. Pay attention - our belief regarding how things are can be deceived by where we are. So too in life when you pass through hard times, it can seem devastating to the point where you might start to believe your best days are behind you. In the dark and gloomy shadows of a break-up, a lost job, a new disability, or even the death of someone very close to you; it can feel like you might never know happiness again. This isn’t the case. The truth of these mountains and their distances was only revealed to me after I consulted google earth, which shows everything from a higher point of view. So too when you access a higher point of view to tell you the truth about your life, you’ll find that there is help and happiness ahead - a lot of it - and someday everything will be all right. Things work out in the end. This isn’t just me being optimistic and nice, the science supports that in the wake of a devastating life event - no matter how severe it is - people generally return to their previous levels of happiness after 90 days. In the meantime, stay strong, seek that higher perspective you need, and believe in good things to come.

One year ago I was doing research in peatlands in central Alaska, studying how climate change is influencing the fragile ecosystems through thawing permafrost. My free time was spent trail running and exploring Denali’s backcountry. An unbelievable experience (both the research and exploring) that seemed to be the perfect mix of work and play. Seems like it was only a couple months ago. I need to get back and explore the southern part of the state. [to give you a sense of how big Denali is, the mountain is still more than 20 miles away from where I took this picture]
