Well, I lost about 5 kg of body weight in a single day while consuming 5+ litres of liquid and quite a bit of food! So me and backpack together lost 11+ kg yesterday!!

Mountain hike #9: ascending Kizilnura (3267m), 42km track and 2100m elevation gain, ~21 hours on the trail. Tried special mountain sneakers for the first time, and they are pretty nice upgrade over $8 ones :)

Was not all that hard, but sleep deprivation beforehand and being out of shape a bit after 3-week break in hiking made me enjoy not as much as I could

Enchantments Backpacking: Day 1

Big if, but if this trip marks the end of backpacking season, I’m satisfied. After setting up my tent at Upper Snow Lake, I couldn’t resist the steep climb up to Lake Viviane to get a glimpse of the Core Enchantments. Incredible! I had psyched myself up for this trip but it’s much better. Spending tomorrow in the core. So excited!

Lake Viviane in the Core Enchantments zone of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in Washington State. Rock cliffs reflect in this alpine lake. A few tall green trees are around the lake but mostly rock surrounds the lake. The water is clear and ice cold. Gray clouds above.
An unknown peak reflects in Nada Lake in the Snow Peak section of the Enchantments. The peak is very rocky. Tall green trees surround the lake. Gray skies above.

40 years ago today: The climb up Pleasant Pond Mountain from the shelter was the worst section of trail I had hiked in a while, but nothing could bring me down today. I just plugged on up and took the side trail to the open summit and a sort of roaming 360-degree view.

We are atop a mountain, looking out over the tops of spruce and fir trees running down the mountainside sloping down ahead of us. The green predominantly spruce and fir forest stretches out as far as we can see. Directly ahead is a wide, flattish valley with a couple of small ponds amid the forest. Beyond that rises a single mountain. A few gray cliffs along the side facing us and near the top break up its forested flanks. Other mountains rise in the background. The sky is a hazy bright white. A mix of sun and clouds is creating patches of bright sunlight and shade across the scene.

Some parts of the #trail I visited yesterday while #hiking or.. Scouting more or less.
I so enjoyed it! And all the time I thought which times would be good to come back: Autumn with great colors? Early winter when water starts freezing? Winter with snow?
Okay, given the narrow path and steep meadows, I'd probably avoid winter. But all the other times seem good.

I hope you enjoy it, too! 😊

With exceptions for this of you recovering from surgery/injury, y’all are supposed to be in the mountains, not in social media!

Just a quick #photo from today's #hike into the #mountains. Gosh I'm so very glad I overcame my procrastination and made it out on the trail.

I could finally explore this trail that I wanted to see since last year. And I guess I'll go there more often!
More clips will follow.

A stunning outdoor mountain landscape is illuminated by the bright blue sky with white fluffy clouds floating above. A winding gravel path leads through the thick and lush vegetation, while tall trees stand tall amongst the landscape. The path takes a slight incline as it winds up the side of the mountain, with smaller trees surrounding the area, making for a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. In the foreground, a small patch of grass is illuminated by the sun, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere. This tranquil scene is perfect for a hike, or just for admiring the beauty of nature.

4/4: The sun did set behind the next #mountains right when I came to the car. - Not an issue at all, it wouldn't go dark immediately. But I just felt ways safer that way. I wouldn't have felt comfortable if I would have had to go that narrow, slippery path while knowing that sunset is near ...
Anyways - all was cool. No super photos, but I know that this trail will see me again! - And I did beat my #procrastination

We are standing on the shore of a very large lake. The sky is a soft deep blue with fluffy clouds. The lake is an even deeper blue, a fresh breeze is chopping its surface, small waves are breaking along the shore. Dry weather has left much lakebed exposed, creating a shoreline of light gray gravel, rocks and boulders. There is a great deal of bleached white driftwood piled up at the normal waterline up against the edge of a lush forest. The trees are mostly dusky green conifers, with a scattering of hardwoods turning gold with autumn. The very distant far shore is also wooded, with small mountains rising in the background.

Mount Jefferson Backpacking: Wrap

Here are some more photos. Woke up Sunday morning to the smell of smoke, which is concerning when you don’t have internet and don’t know if it is from far away or a new fire nearby. I really enjoyed my adventure exploring off-trail, I can’t wait to do some more. May be able to do that in the Enchantments this coming weekend, if rain and smoke hold off a bit more. 🤞🏼

Still hard to believe, but #10YearsAgo we climbed the highest mountain of the European #Alps: #MontBlanc (4808m)

In a two-day ascent, we started from Nid d'Aigle (2365m) up the adventurous path until the Refuge du Goûter (3835m).

I did not sleep well, started at 4:00 up to the summit, in full moon, so no headlamp needed. While some climbers suffered (puking...), we could enjoy every step, even if it was very cold (but crystal-clear air).

Nonstop descent of 2500m 😎

#MountainMonday #Mountains

View down from the adventurous and steep ascent to Mont Blanc. This part, the Grand Couloir (namely the grand mountain gorge) was snow-covered and therefore kept falling rocks in place.
Sunset at the new Refuge du Goûter at 3835m elevation.
Ascent to the summit of Mont Blanc (4808m) over Grande and Petite Bosse, the highest mountain of the European Alps and the European Union.
My shadow is cast on the top of Mount Blanc, in crystal-clear and very cold air. The panoramic view down to the other mountains was unbelievable.

Mount Jefferson Backpacking: Day 2

Stayed off the mountain and explored Jefferson Park today. Visited Park and Rock Lakes, which I hadn’t been to. Also Scout, Russell, and Bays Lakes. This is a permit area. You pretty much can’t camp here or at any of the major lakes in Jefferson Wilderness and not have a ranger check your permit. They’re easy to get. This park full of alpine meadows. It’s so special.

Mount Jefferson overlooking an alpine meadow covered in light green grass. Trees are scattered throughout the meadow with some white burnt trees at the base of the mountain. The rocky mountain has a few glaciers. Lightish blue sky.
Trees reflecting in Bays Lake. The small lake has somewhat clear water with hills of rock and tall green trees lining the shoreline. One of the many lakes in Jefferson Park. Blue sky.
Park Butte reflecting in Russell Lake in Jefferson Park. The butte rises above a hill made of living and dead trees. Dark blue sky.
The Pacific Crest Trail rounds a corner to the left through what’s left of a heavily burnt forest. The trees are decimated with burnt trunks and stumps for miles. The horizon has a beautiful sunrise with purple, red, orange, green, and blue.

Mount Jefferson Backpacking: Day 1

I made it up to 8,300 feet on Mountain Jefferson, which is the highest I’ve been standing on Earth. A little challenging but I had a great time and the views were beautiful. Camped near Shale Lake and explored the area. Very quiet here because most thru hikers are in Washington or California. Have only seen 3 people and they were all headed up Jefferson.

#Backpacking #PNW #Oregon #Photography #Hiking #Walking #Nature #Outdoors #Mountains #Sunrise

Looking south from high up on Mount Jefferson. Several mountains can be seen in the distance including Three Fingered Jack (right) and I believe Mount Washington and some or all of the three sisters (left side). I believe North and South Cinder Peaks are middle right. Partially cloudy blue sky. Many hills in the foreground.
Pond north of Shake Lake. Partially dried up, this pond is a good water source for this heading up Mount Jefferson. Water is partially clear, we can see mud and rocks on the bottom. Tall green trees on the other side of the pond. Blue sky with a hint of clouds. The pond is surrounded by mud and rocks.
Shake Lake. Mount Jefferson looks over the small lake that is surrounded by tall green trees and meadows. The mountain peak is bare rock with a few small patches of snow. The water in the lake is murky. Blue sky.
Sunrise behind tall green trees. The colors of the sky start with purple and move up to red, orange, and pink. A prominent tree in the foreground stands above the others.

I'm back from my #mtb tour!
91km, close to 1000m elevation gain
I don't feel OK - I FEEL GREAT! I'm not deadly exhausted or so. It was just a wonderful day! Just going at a constant, convenient pace, the right clothing, enough to eat and drink, and aaaall the #landscape and #mountains around.
Man, this is life! This is freedom!
Yesterday I struggled if I could make it - obviously I very underestimated my #cycling endurance. 🥰

This photograph captures the grandeur of the outdoors with a stunning mountain range set against a beautiful blue sky. The snowcapped peaks of the mountain are surrounded by lush green trees that seem to fill the entire landscape. A few clouds dot the sky, adding to the drama of the scene. The bright sunlight shines through the trees and illuminates the vibrant colors of the landscape. The picture is a perfect example of the beauty of nature and the serenity of the outdoors. It is a reminder of the wonders of the natural world and the beauty that can be found in the most unexpected places.
This image depicts a man wearing a helmet and standing in front of a mountain. The man is wearing a grey jacket and a black bicycle helmet. He is standing on a grassy incline, with a bright blue sky above him. The man has a pleasant expression on his face, as if he is smiling. He is also wearing a black backpack. The mountain in the background is rocky and covered in trees, with tufts of clouds in the air. The man appears to be enjoying the outdoors and taking in the scenery. He is standing with his arms at his side, looking as if he is about to embark on an adventure.

☁ This puffball of cloud appeared over the grassy ridge of a cow pasture, a mile high in elevation, in the Apennine mountains of Italy. It grew so slowly, it felt just like the long, lazy summer day it appeared, characterized by gentle breezes in the valley’s sea of wildflowers, and the occasional distant mooing of the cattle.
