Granite Winter Camp Night

The first weekend in February, my boyfriend and I decided to go winter camping at a local rock called Granite Point. For being the beginning of February, it ended up being pretty warm. We hiked up around  8pm with our headlamps, our backpacks full of sleeping bags, a tent, some sleeping pads, steak, potatoes, corn,   oysters, smores and a little wine.

It was the perfect one night get away from Pullman. I set up camp while Colt got the fire going. We cooked our steaks, potatoes, and corn in aluminum foil over the fire, and let our oysters cook over the embers. We got to eat fireside, riverside, underneath an ocean of stars. It was just what I needed to beat that mid-semester senioritis that has hit hard.

We made smores, drank a little wine, and talked about how we definitely needed to do this more. I feel pretty lucky to be dating my best friend who likes to go on random adventures, because there is just something about adventures that sets my soul right. Colt took some really cool photos (hopefully of which I can get my hands on to post on here), and we went to bed fairly early for a Friday night.

We woke up to an amazing view.


Our getaway paradise for a night.

I tried to get up early to get some cool shots, and ended up only liking a few of them. But the trip was incredible even if I couldn’t get proper documentation. I can’t wait for our next adventure coming up this weekend to Red Mountain Canada!

Wilderwomen was born out of two women with the same dream; build a community of women who empower one another outdoors. Whether you’re seeking yoga, a get away, a tribe, an outdoor adventure, or just some time in nature, Wilderwomen has it all. We host meet-ups and outdoor retreats in the picturesque PNW paradise that include daily yoga, gourmet meals, outdoor adventures, hot spring soaks, glamping and more! We are building a community of women (and men, and partners, and those who don’t opt to define themselves by a gender) who feel confident in their skin and in their technical outdoor abilities, a tribe of humans who deeply care about the environment and each other, and a collection of outdoor enthusiasts and weekend warriors who are excited to get after it in the outdoors.
