🔸“When I solo hike in mountains, there’s a feeling I’m after. Those few moments of sheer solitude where the only footsteps in the snow are our own. The only voices are yours and you share the moments with yourself. As someone who fears loneliness, the mountains taught me to love and embrace myself. They taught me that loneliness can be the most powerful feeling.” . . // @nelleandellen . . chosen by: @tiarevincent #choosemountainswomen @choosemountainswomen choosemountains.com for features, tag us✌🏼

Ambassador Feature Friday! Our second ambassador for today is (@natebbrown). He is one of the contributors on this account and loves skiing all day, everydayyyy. We asked him about his 2019 plans and he said this: . . 🔸“So 2019 is shaping up to be a fun year for me! In late March, I will head to Ireland for a week long vacation, and then later in September I will be going to the Dolomites in Italy for two weeks. The rest of the time when I'm not on vacation, I have the privilege to already live in the dream destination of Washington state where my only goal is to get as much hiking, mountaineering, and skiing in as I possibly can!” 📸: @alexspaeth . . chosen by: @tiarevincent #choosemountainswomen @choosemountainswomen choosemountains.com for features, tag us✌🏼

Ambassador Feature Friday! Our next ambassador (@ms_rebecca_ann) is our second ambassador to be leaving to do the PCT this year. We are so excited for her! She’s also a huge help on the @cho@choosemountainswomen account so you may know her from there. We asked her about her upcoming year of hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail, and she said this: . . 🔸“One of the hardest parts of this adventure will be leaving this guy at home. If one human year is equal to seven dog years, then almost THREE dog years will have passed by the time I reach Manning Park. The best defense mechanism I’ve come up with to help ease the void I’ll likely feel on trail without him is reminding myself that each day finished will be one day closer to seeing him again.” . . chosen by: @tiarevincent #choosemountainswomen @choosemountainswomen choosemountains.com for features, tag us✌🏼

🔶 @lm_little // “I could stay inside, I could sit on my couch, and I could isolate myself from the world. Instead I choose mountains, to challenge my body, strengthen my mind and deepen my connection to nature. But let’s be real, taking my infant son up mountains doesn’t happen without a few struggles. But in a lot of ways it’s easier than I thought it would be. Sometimes to you just have to try things to know what’s possible. Diaper changes on the trail and breastfeeding on summits, are all part of the unique experience, that allow my son to be with me in nature, and feel my passion for the mountains. I hope one day he can adventure all on his own, and find joy in the mountains, just like I have.” . //photo by: @powphotog . 🔶Chosen by: @mrsdaniellephillips . #choosemountains @choosemountains choosemountains.com For features, tag us ✌🏼

🔶@amber.yanitski // I asked Amber what makes her #cho#choosemountains and she said, “I choose mountains because they are my happy place. I have worked through a lot of physical, emotional and mental challenges while out adventuring. My favorite form of therapy is summiting a mountain, breathing in the fresh air and sharing a summit beer with solid company. They are a place of healing, growth and a place that has brought me a solid community.” . //photo by: @taylorstasila . 🔶Chosen by: @natebbrown . #choosemountains @choosemountains choosemountains.com For features, tag us ✌🏼

🔶 “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory” ————————————————— Hiking the #pacificcresttrail this past year was one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences. I #CHOOSEMOUNTAINS because it allows me to fully live in the moment. Where all it takes is putting one foot in front of the other, taking one mile at a time & before you know it, I just walked from Mexico to Canada. You start to forget about aches and pains when you’re enjoying the company of new friends that become family and the beautiful views that leave you speechless. It’s the most rewarding thing to do something you once thought was impossible. . //photo by: @_jamielambert_ . 🔶Chosen by: @benperriphoto . #choosemountains @choosemountains choosemountains.com For features, tag us ✌
