Mount Baker Snowshoeing

So I’ve been pretty behind with my blogging lately. Work has got me so exhausted that I fall asleep a lot earlier than I used to, and I keep falling behind with the blogging world. So this week I’m playing catch up with some trips that I’ve been meaning to blog about.

Back in January on New Years Eve weekend, our friends Kate & Hayes and Dave and I went snowshoeing at Mount Baker. We had gone the day before at a random spot in the forest, but Mount Baker was breathtaking. So humbling to be surrounded by such magnificent mountains. IMG_4195


Some of these pictures look fake because it’s so pretty. We got pretty spoiled to snowshoe here on only our second time ever going.


It was a perfect sunny day out.


We moved to Seattle in October of 2015 and being here I had a surreal moment, realizing where we now live, and the cool things we get to do with friends.


We picked a nice, secluded spot to eat lunch.





Dave killing the jump pic as usual and me getting whipped in the face with my own hair hahah!




A fun twist on our Pinterest inspired feet picture, we take at fun locations.


It was the best way to start the new year being so active and surrounded by friends and the mountains. I know this post was a little long, but there are just so many awesome pictures it was hard to choose. 🙂 It has easily become one of our new favorite winter activities.

Tell Us About It: Fave Winter Activities



I am so behind on blogging but I’m trying to keep up with our linkup schedule, so today Katie, Mattie, and I are talking about our favorite winter activities and memories. (I can’t believe it’s already March!)

One of my favorite things about living in Seattle is that the winters are so mild. It’s just cloudy and rainy. It barely snows here and coming from Chicago it’s pretty refreshing. I love that it snows in the mountains. It’s so pretty to look at and feels like being in a real life snow globe. I also love that we can choose to play in the snow for the day and drive to it and not have to live in it.

In January, Dave and I went snowshoeing for the first time. We went to Artisan’s Point in Mount Baker on New Year’s Day. What a great way to start the new year! It was gorgeous and sunny out. It was an amazing experience. We brought snacks and a lunch and sat in the snow. That was the only time we were a little chilly, when we weren’t moving. IMG_4370

I sent this pic to my dad and he said he wanted to frame it. How cute is that? IMG_4345

We rented our snowshoes from REI. A lot of people don’t know that you can rent gear, but you should take advantage of it! Living in Seattle people are so active so you have to reserve equipment early!


I have so many more pictures from this snowshoe adventure at Mount Baker, and if I can ever get my stuff together I will blog about it.

The first two weekends in January we snowshoed and I wrote about this snowshoe trip here. This one was a little steep, but such a fun adventure. It was my friend Gretchen’s first time.


This was the week after Christmas, but it reminded me of a Christmas card because it’s so cute! Dave and Denny grew up together down the block together and went to school together from kindergarten through high school. Adorable much?


So even though snowshoeing is a new activity for us, it’s a new favorite for sure! It’s is just hiking in the snow but I love that the snowshoes allow us to still hike in the winter, versus waiting for spring to get out again.

Can’t wait to read what your favorite winter activities and memories are.
