Eastern Sierra might be my favorite place ever, and if I had never visited it I wouldn’t have become interested in travel and photography. I grew up in the Northeast, USA and while there are many beautiful places out there (especially in the fall) seeing mountains like these made me realize there’s so much more. Curiosity fueled the rest of my adventures, and has continued to do so to this very day 🏔 Thank you California for being awesome 🤟🏼 @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure #EBContributor

The lake that looks like either a 🦊 or 🐺. This morning was easily the best weather we had during our entire trip to the Rockies. We were running on virtually no sleep, and exhausted from a grueling hike only hours earlier, but we knew we had to make it here before heading home. Sometimes it’s just about that final push @EddieBauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure #EBContributor

Find those alps vibes in the middle of the good ole USA 🏔 What an absolutely perfect morning this was 🤠🤙🏼

Wyoming - definitely one of the wildest places out there 🤠

The 3am wake up for those early morning hikes are worth it 😁🏜 @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #EBContributor #LiveYourAdventure

Some memories will last a lifetime 🦌

There’s a difference between walking the path and knowing it 🏔🚶🏻 @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #EBContributor #LiveYourAdventure

ryanresatka

Enjoying these summertime vibes in the mountains to the best of my ability 😁🏔 There’s absolutely nothing better

ryanresatka

I absolutely loved walking between all of these villages at the base of Mount Fuji. No matter how far you walk the mountain is always looming. Thank you @eddiebauer for keeping me warm on these brisk mornings 🗻 #LiveYourAdventure #WhyIHike #EBContributor

We’ve been ripping around the Rockies in a custom conversion van built by @colorado.campervan for the last week. It’s been like living in a mobile hotel with all the comforts of home. Montana and Wyoming have been amazing, and we cannot wait for Idaho and the Sawtooths in just a couple of days. Long live summer 🤙🏼

ryanresatka

We’re having a blast out here in Wyoming 🤠 I hadn’t been back to this area in over three years, so it’s been great seeing these mountains again while still finding new sights I missed the last time around. The hike to this lake was absolutely perfect in the morning 👌🏼The awesome red pack featured here: Sisu 40L by @EddieBauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure #EBContributor

These rocks in Montana are something else. It was like seeing every single type of colored rock ever at once 🌈 🤯

It’s really hard to comprehend the size of Sequoias until you’re standing right next to them. My favorite season to explore these giant forests is during early summer right after the snow melts. The slightly cooler temperatures at this higher elevation help when hiking around during the day. You can feasibly get out to some incredible sequoia groves far away from the crowds in peace and solitude ☺️ It’s worth taking the time to see what else out there @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #EBContributor #LiveYourAdventure

The morning that this photo was taken was definitely more calming than the entirety of my last trip to the Canadian Rockies 😂 What you typically see on Instagram is the end result of careful planning, execution, and time spent editing photos until they come out appearing how you felt in the moment. What you don’t see are the 4-5 people debating which location is going to be better for sunrise/sunset, figuring out where and when you’re going to shower next, running on zero sleep and deciding if you’re going to push through, finding a place to camp/sleep for the night if it’s even an option, and how to deal with bad weather when it’s inhibiting you from doing the things that you meticulously planned before arriving. There’s also super fun scenarios such as getting flat tires, speeding tickets, missing a connecting international flight, running out of gas on the highway, hitting a road closure and having to take a 3 hour detour around, having equipment break with no way to replace or repair it, permits selling out only minutes before your arrival, or maybe the occasional car break in. Not all of these things have happened to me, but they have happened to a lot of people I know who are living this lifestyle. It’s not as glamorous as you’d imagine, and you’re going to run into moments that make you want to quit on the spot. It definitely helps having a hilarious group of friends all in the same boat helping you push though, suck it up, and get the itinerary done. Surrounding yourself with likeminded, fun, positive people will make these experiences and memories worth it. These are also the people you want to hang out with on those days where you put down the camera and do nothing pertinent. Maybe you’ll actually take in the scenery, go on a hike, jump into a lake, grab a beer at a local brewery, and laugh together about the shenanigans from the day before. So while we didn’t get the photos we had hoped for in the Canadian Rockies I’m just glad that I had a group of friends help turn a not-so-ideal situation into a super fun one. I’ll be back again when the time is right. For now... on to the next thing. See you tomorrow Wyoming! 🤠

Back in the American Rockies for the next three weeks 🏔 I honestly couldn’t be more stoked. I’ve been waiting MONTHS for the lakes to thaw. The time is finally right - hello summer! 😛🤙🏼

Lago Di Banger early in the AM right after sunrise 💆🏻‍♂️🌄

While the weather wasn’t what we had hoped for while visiting the Rockies, that’s just how some of these trips go. Either way I’m glad that we got some good hiking in, and were able to catch up with friends who were visiting at the same time. I also had the chance to check out some views I’d been wanting to see for awhile. Here’s one from a peak adjacent to Mount Temple. It’s definitely a good one. Favorite part was getting back to our car at midnight 😎🤙🏼 @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #liveyouradventure #EBContributor

Nothing better than summer vibes in the alps 😎🤙🏼 Wish it was around for longer

Happy 4th of July here in the good ole USA 🇺🇸 She’s not perfect, but she’s home. I hope everybody is having wonderful day, and hopefully enjoying some great summer weather somewhere. I took this picture last year during my two week trip to Michigan. Hoping to return again soon 😁
