Me encanta como el sol colorea las nubes, empieza a contrastar con el cielo e ilumina la zona de camping. Solo es despertar, salir de tu carpa y admirar.
Quizás sea uno de los amanecer más singulares que he presenciado, y que lo interesante es que no queda muy lejos de la ciudad capital.
Today is National Take a Hike Day. We hope everyone is out getting their hike on! Thanks @outdoorsy_val for the tag! Please follow us and tag photos @pnwpeakbaggers or use #pnwpeakbaggers to get featured.
In 1859, miners arrived in the valley and discovered gold. James P. Hewitt and his Amalgamated Mining Co. began building the Jawbone Flats mining camp in 1930, where they processed lead, zinc, copper and silver. Some of the mining roads and the Gold Creek Bridge were constructed in 1939 under President Roosevelt’s New Deal. Mining at Opal Creek was never very profitable, and by the time snow damaged the Jawbone Flats buildings in the 1950s, operations had all but ceased.
In 1944, James Hewitt’s daughter Dolores had married future Oregon governor Vic Atiyeh, fatefully introducing the Atiyeh family to Opal Creek. Through the 1960s and 1970s Vic’s nephew George Atiyeh managed the Shiny Rock Mining Company, living part-time at Jawbone Flats with a small contingent of miners and their families. Shiny Rock Mining Company was one of many private landowners in the area based on old mining claims.
Evening sun versus morning sun shining gloriously on some spectacular peaks. Unfortunately we were in a bowl and not quite high enough to get the true sunset or sunrise but what we did see still made my soul sing with happiness. Which do you prefer?
I've put $3 worth of gas in my tank before and I’ve put $40 in my tank. I've had $5 to feed myself and I've had $500 to go out to eat. I’ve asked for rides and given rides. I’ve had a house full of food and I’ve been without food. I’ve given people clothes. I’ve been given clothes. I’ve been in stores cashing out with no worries and I’ve also had to add it up and put it back. I’ve paid my rent in full and I’ve had to pay it late too. I’ve given money and I too have had to ask for it. We all have highs and lows in life, some certainly more than others, but we’re all just trying to make it. No one is better than anyone else, and I pity those who think that they are. No matter how big your house is, how new your car is, or how much money sits in your bank account - we all bleed red and will all die someday. Death has no discrimination neither should your life. Be kind to others. And know not everyone has the same heart as you... The people who pretend they love you so much will leave you standing in all the storms just so they can shine...
Enjoy life! You only get one. ❤️❤
So I swore up and down and sideways that I would never do a winter overnight but does it really count if you sleep in a hut heated by a wood stove? What a beautiful way to spend the Remembrance Day long weekend. Mountains, friends, snow adventures, spiked hot chocolate and games! Bring it on winter, I’m ready! ❄️🏔
Okay I still can’t get over that I got this @eddiebauer jacket at Costco for HALF the price other name brands were selling for! 😮I’ve been wearing it like every day because it looks super cute AND it keeps me warm and dry❄️
This elopement at High Rock Lookout has captured our attention. What a perfect way to begin that life-long "adventure" that is marriage. Our very best to the happy couple for their lifetime together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What about you? Would you elope in the Mountains? Let us know in the comments! ⬇ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many thanks to @qandaphotography for the 📷.
“With our objective summited and plenty of time spent climbing other rocks, it dawned on us that it was finally time to head down. That alpenglow though, we just couldn’t tear ourselves away.”

“Now that it's November we can tromp around in the snow all weekend, have sweet backcountry fires and post pics of bare larches--still golden in that sideways light. Stuart Range from Navaho Peak.”

“@mountainboo87 gets us oriented from Bills Peak in August. We summited Argonaut (above his finger) the next morning and got chased out of the mountains by an afternoon thunderstorm that wouldn't quit. ⛈” Thanks @br14nh for the tag!
