Few posts back I asked for suggestions of your favorite hikes in Glacier National Park and few of you recommended Dawson-Pitamakan loop hike. At first we thought to do it as a backpacking trip but no permits were issued for a few days because of the fires. So we decided to do this 20mile hike in a day. I have to say that this hike is just stunning and it felt good to do it with a light backpack. Hands down one of my favorites in @glaciernps. #glaciernationalpark #dawsonpitamakan πŸ“·@moonmountainman

We just finished an amazing five day backpacking trip in @glaciernps from Kintla Lake to Bowman Lake over Boulder Pass. The views and wildflowers were spectacular. Glacier National Park never disappoints. I am still out of shape after my pregnancy and giving birth but it felt so good to be out and work up some sweat. For me this is the best way to get back in shape. No mirror or scale but just putting one foot in front of the other while carrying my backpack and enjoying the views. This is my kind of gym. πŸ“·@moonmountainman #glaciernationalpark #takemebackpacking

My feet are pulsating after walking for miles in the heat but I know that the reward is close. Soon enough I will be able to take off my heavy backpack, kick off the hiking boots off my swollen and sweaty feet, put on my @chacofootwear and deep my feet in the refreshing cool water of the pristine alpine lake. That is why Chacos is a must item on my backpacking list even if they add extra weight. I've been testing out new Z/Cloud Chacos that have a pillow top for extra comfort. Check them out (link in my bio). I can tell you that my feet were extra happy when I put them on, and I felt another burst of energy to set up the camp, cook food, and explore around. #chaconation #sponsored

Oh the sweet simple life in the backcountry. When I am at home there is always something to do or to distract me. Clean the house, cook meals, grocery shopping, paying bills, work on the computer, etc. Days at the camp are filled with quality time especially when the mosquitoes are out in the evening and I am hiding inside the tent with my little girl. But we don't mind it at all. She loves attention and smiles when I am talking to her. #adventurefamily #qualitytime #camplife πŸ“·@moonmountainman

Why a spectacular place to spend family time for a couple of days. Yesterday we completed first backpacking trip with our 12 weeks old baby girl. It was also a first one for me after giving birth. I already hiked to Jade lake before but this times around it was harder than I remembered. It must be due to me being out of shape and having heavier backpacks because we had to carry baby stuff. But spending time together in such a beautiful and remote place as a family worth all the effort. #jadelake #adventurefamily #takemebackpacking
