There’s magic out on the alpine trail right now.
Lovely spontaneous hike with a dear friend to start a four-day weekend! Close to 9 miles of amazing green ferns, moss and trees and some fantastic waterfalls along the way.

👋🏼Heya! Welcome. I’m Chelsea. For years I’ve talked about documenting and sharing my outdoor hiking and backpacking adventures with my kids and finally - I’m doing it!
This is the space I’ll share some of adventures, trails and tips to hopefully make hiking & backpacking feel more accessible to more parents. When I first became pregnant it was a disappointment to realize I didn’t really know anyone who hiked/backpacked while pregnant or with kids. I was determined to figure it out.
I’ve learned so much over the last few years, but I’m no expert. I just happen to really love and thrive in the outdoors and I think my kids do too. I have 2 jobs I absolutely love. I live with my husband and 2 kids in Portland and am surrounded by amazing scenery we try to enjoy as much as possible. These are our everyday trails. 🌿

The variety of terrane in Oregon blows my mind! This photo is from a 7 mile hike we did in the Oregon Badlands. That rock formation is called the drive in. We missed the landmark we were trying to hike to and ended up here. Not what I picture when I think of Oregon, but amazing that a state can be so diverse.
Black Butte is an extinct volcano just outside of Sisters, OR. One of Oregon's earliest fire detection structures was built here in 1910.
Last eruption 1,430,000 years ago.
these two cuties got married in an intimate ceremony last fall, and celebrated with their family + friends this past weekend.
they’ve been together for 7+ years and know what highs + lows look like.
it was seriously such an honor to be able to provide them with some photos of just the two of them.
no doubt I’ll be posting a lot from this session.
