My View From the Top

This weekend I made the ultimate sacrifice to avoid Netflix as much as possible so that you guys could enjoy Season 3 of House of Cards. We didn't break it after all and for that I give a hearty cheers!

So okay, I'll admit that I watched a few episodes. I was itching to see what Frank and Claire were up to, but I also did work, food prep, laundry, dishes, cleaning and sleeping in. 

Then there were those few hours that I escaped from reality to go see this beauty.

There's nothing better than making my way up a mountain with a clear head and a calm heart. 

We had an unusually beautiful weekend for February in the Northwest so my spirit was was screaming at me to get out of the house and seek adventure. I know that I'm always doing this trail and always posting some version of this photo while there are hundreds of other trails I could be wandering. This weekend and this first hike of the year I was craving a familiar trail that allowed me to shut off my brain and see the beauty all around me. 

The air at the peak was a little chilly and the trails were a little crowded - but still was an exceptional mental escape to prepare for the busy week ahead. 

And what, it's March? How!

Did you guys do anything exciting this weekend?

I WANT TO VISIT THE PNW SO BAD. i love the west coast!!!

i went to an amazing muay thai fight. a friend at my gym was in it and the support he had (at the battling gym) was incredible! more than double the amount of people came to support him and our section was the loudest :D it was awesome.

Incredibly jealous of your pretty weekend. We got more snow, on top of the piles we already had, and I've had about enough. I need my trails to thaw out so I can get my fill too! But glad you enjoyed your hike :)

Winnipeg was just straight up too cold for life. But I did go to the Symphony like some fancy pants so that was fun!

Wow, what a spectacular view! Definitely jealous of your hike! I need it to stop snowing and warm up here so I can get outside more without getting frostbite!

So gorgeous! Hiking a mountain really is one of the best ways to disconnect for a while...with a close runner up being bubble baths IMO
