There is no better way to spend the first day of spring than to fall in love with a new trail. I’ve hiked to Abrams Falls from Cades Cove in the past, but I’d never hiked in from Abrams Creek Campground. Three trails combined for a roundtrip of a little over 10 miles. Weather was perfect, the trail was gorgeous, and I had the best company. We couldn’t have asked for a better day (aside from that rude old Betty 😂)! Can’t wait to do this one again in the summer to take advantage of all the perfect swimming holes along the trail. • Shout out to @roam_united for my new favorite hat! 💚 • • • #GSMNP #greatsmokymountains #nps #waterfallwednesday #roamwild #roamunited #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #happyhiking #hikethesmokies #hiketn #easttennessee #waterfall #abramsfalls #naturalbeauty #findyouradventure #optoutside #adventures #lovethislife #bestfriends #hikevibes #gogalavanting #latergram #spring at Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Sunday marks the first GSMNP hike of the year for us and I’m already getting SO excited. For our first stop in the park, we’re headed to Porters Creek in the Greenbrier area. I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t done any hiking on the Eastern side of the park yet but I’m ready and excited for that to change. 😍 at Little River Trail

Enjoying long walks in the early morning bamboo forest has to be something special. Saw these loved ones taking a stroll down the alley of bamboo and thought that I could be back one day to do the same with someone. This place was stunning and although not hidden it’s definitely one of Japan’s most notable attractions. Luckily, the Japan Planner is a one-stop-shop tool allows users to filter their selections based on their interests and preference, all while introducing travelers to more of Japan’s amazing things to see 👌🏻 🎋 @allnipponairways_official 📷: @shortstache #getoutside #hikingdogsofinstagram #hikingtheglobe #ilovehiking #hikeny #hikethesmokies #hikingcrew #hikingdays #hikingcouple #hikingalaska

Winter is still hanging in there in the higher elevations of Clingmans Dome with snow in the forecast for tomorrow.

After hiking and seeing mountains all day long I still couldn't resist stopping on the Foothills Parkway "missing link" section to get one last view of the mountains before heading on home. #hikethesmokies #friendsofthesmokies #gsmnp #nature #nationalpark #smokymountains #smokies #smokymountains #AT #dayhiker #nchiking #tennesseehiking #getout #lovehiking #outdoors #nature #smokies #hike #865life #mountians

Yesterday's sunrise in the Smokies from Clingmans Dome Road. The beginning of a day hiking CD Road and AT.

A year ago we launched into an ambitious project alongside @jaybirdsport to capture stories of the growing revolution in running cultures around the world. It’s been a wild ride, but I’m beyond excited share the 6th episode of the series shot with an incredible team in Ethiopia alongside the Girls Gotta Run Foundation • • For this chapter I traveled to Bekoji, Ethiopia, a small rural farming village with deep roots in long-distance running. What we found there was a revolution—an incredibly inspiring and driven group of young female runners who were part of the @girlsgottarun , a non-profit dedicated to using Ethiopia’s national sport of running to create safe spaces, expand education and empower young Ethiopian women and their communities • • I’m excited to share that after a memorable journey, @jaybirdsport is contributing to Girls Gotta Run in a creative and impactful way. Check out the film to learn more. @camp4collective @etteloc @firstrun @rorybosio @wrkshrt @lazerlegs @niceshoesonline @tinylionmusic 📷: @timkemple #hike #forest #colorado #hikingtrails #hikingismagical #hiketime #hikeing #hikethesmokies #mountainhike #sepatuhiking

Jurassic world One of the places that always amazes me is Kualoa Ranch. It’s where they film a lot of shows and movies, including the Jurassic park series.

GET AWAY & UNPLUG We were off to the mountains this weekend now that we had some steady sunshine! Signs of spring maybe? It was awesome to get out there. I haven't been backpacking since TMB last summer and acquiring a numb shoulder due to a pinched nerve which I think came from a combination of my sports bra and the pack's strap. Thankfully the feeling eventually came back to my shoulder many months later but it was enough to make me forget until this weekend. But the trail was certainly recovering from this rough winter of crazy thunderstorms left and right with a lot of trees down so we had to get a bit flexible hopping over giant trees at times. Things are starting to bloom but thankfully most of the trees were still bare. So although the Smokies keep you in the treeline all the way to the top, we still got pockets of beautiful views through the bareness. We met some interesting people at our campsite as more and more AT through hikers flowed into that shelter for the night. Glad we came equipped with tents and froze our butts off all night! But it's always fun hearing others' stories and adventures and seeing their perseverance and determination as they get through a long and tough journey. If you don't know, the Applachian Trail is a 2,200mi hike from Springer Mtn, Georgia to Mt Katahdin, Maine (or vice versa). The grit and drive these hikers have to make such an enduring journey on foot is incredibly admirable. Despite all that, it's amazing the mental clarity a couple of days without service or wifi can do for you. I highly recommend it to refresh your body and mind. Though a 13 mile hike may just tire out your body, but mentally feels great being out there! AND I've never seen more deer than on this trail 🦌 I'll take that over the huge population of bears in this park. How do you enjoy the outdoors? 🏕⛰🏜🏝 at The Great Smoky Mountains

Took the family on a quick trip to Gatlinburg last week. We got to stay at DJ's Station. It's a re-build from the Gatlinburg fire of 2016 and is filled up with items dedicated to firefighters who fought that fire. Pretty cool place to stay if you're looking to get away and get outside. #unplug #getoutside #hikethesmokies #firefighter #chiefmiller

It’s permit season! All I can think of is all the hikes I want to do. It’s also reminding me that I should probably get back into shape 🙈 and go for a run instead of write this instagram post 😝.

If somebody invites me to go camping in California..9 times out of 10 I’m going to say yes and find a way to make it happen. When you get to see views like this, hang with best friends and new friends, see your siblings, hike and swim hot springs/lakes/rivers, get stuck on the side of a steep hill while off-roading, meet “THE Tequila Girl” at a marg festival, and just sending the good ol ...Count me innnnn🤙 📷: @j_h_brown #waterfall #hikeaz #hikingculture #mountainlife #hikingindonesia #hikingfriends #hikethesmokies #hikinghawaii #hikingintherain #hikekentucky

Lately I’ve been blessed enough to spend a lot of time on the trail while most people are at work or school through the week. This week I completely forgot it was Spring Break for many schools in our area, but I was quickly reminded as I made my way past popular trailheads to Newfound Gap. Traffic was ridiculous, cars were parked in the road, and people were everywhere. • I miraculously found a parking spot at Newfound Gap, admired the view, and took off on the AT toward Clingman’s Dome. I had gotten a much later start than I wanted, so I knew the Dome wasn’t ideal. Instead, I got familiar with a new (to me) but short portion of the AT, located a hidden gem, and found solitude on the closed Clingman’s Dome Road. It was a perfect day. 💚 at Great Smoky Mountains National Park

A couple of hikes that we did over the past few days in the #smokeymountains the boys and I did a 10 miler on an 8 mile trail because of a downed tree that prevented us from accessing the trail head. Both boys walked the 5 miles out, covering 2300’ of elevation gain (I carried Alan back down in the baby ruck). . I picked this hike because I felt like Eli needed something a bit more challenging. He had been completing 5 mile hikes since he was 3, so it seemed like a good time to step things up. Alan has now matched his brother by covering 5 miles at age 3. His previous best was 2.1 miles last year. . The next day @kendracol267 was able to join us for a 3 mile family hike out to some old farm buildings. We loved having her along! It’s wonderfully see how much these boys love the outdoors!
