@alpinefish43 has us dreaming of long runs and epic views. - Are you more of a trail runner or a road runner? - - - Big thanks to @alpinefish43 for the inspiration. #adventureboldly #gearjunkielife to be featured - -- #Repost ・・・ Shavano➡️Tabaguache➡️ Browns Creek ➡️ Antero ➡️ Alpine ...back to the car parked at Grouse. I fell short of the summit on Antero due to some spooky looking clouds but Phebus pulled it off no problem of course. What an incredible day to be willow whacking, ridge running, and galavanting in the alpine. . . . #choosemountains #mountaingram #runmountains #dirtbagrunners #14ers #colorado #expandyourplayground #trailrunning #instarunners #runcast #running #optoutside #run #downtorun #adventureboldly #gearjunkielife

Hard to beat waking up to views like this! - Inspiring capture by @anjuliglobal - #adventureboldly #gearjunkielife to be featured. ・・・ #repost @anjuliglobal Best view from a tent ever.. Here at Crater Lake National Park in #Oregon the soft hues of faded light and stillness of water reflects huge caldera walls in all directions. Arriving at the very end of season two years ago my friend and I found half the roads closed and decided to speed backpack the 30+miles circuit in two days with some off trail fun advice from the rangers here. On our second day we stumbled upon a huge LA film crew much to our surprise and there was Reese Witherspoon in gear shooting the movie Wild. @naturewhisperers #findyourpark #craterlake #bestoforegon #BofO1k #pnwonderland #gearjunkielife #nofilter #instagoodmyphoto @nationalparkservice #gearjunkie #builtforthewild
