Mountain Proposals and Post-Wedding Adventures From #LoveInTheMountains
On Valentine's Day Weekend, we hosted the #LoveInTheMountains Instagram challenge, inviting users to post a photo of them and their significant other together in the mountains. We got tons of great submissions. Here are our some of our favorites of people's proposals or post-wedding adventures.
"Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life." -- Dolly Parton 2012 was a big year for us. It started with Mountain School, a 14-week course taught by our local club, the #spokanemountaineers It had been 7 months since that blind date and I couldn't think of a better way to discover each other's charm, than winter camping at 8,000+ feet and trusting your partners newly found self arrest skills as you cross over the seemingly bottomless crevasses. There was tears, blisters, dehydration, altitude sickness, smelly feet and that one midnight incident where there was a mishap with the pee bottle over a sleeping bag in subzero temperatures. But none of the struggle was too much. You never gave up, because you're strong. After that, I knew. No reason to postpone. I dropped a knee at Lake Louise and pushed a piece of parachord, with a double fish knotted on the top, over your knuckle on the dock. We were on our way back from Mt Athabasca and the Columbia Ice Fields near Jasper National Park. Shortly after, we found ourselves on the Summit of Mt Baker, holding these homemade signs. #BakersonBaker #unforgettable Cheers to more adventures with you and growing our #LoveInTheMountains for many years to come. I love you @rachelbaker12 happy #valentinesday ���� ⛷����⛺️�� @outdoorresearch
#loveinthemountains @gally8 @outdoorresearch Thank you for choosing to be my partner in life love and adventures. It was the mountains that brought us together and our love for each other will continue to grow. Yesterday I asked you to marry me. I want to spend the rest of my life with you growing together and conquering challenges together and most importantly loving each other unconditionally. I am proud to call you mine!
#loveinthemountains This was the beginning of our adventure seeking life together. We were engaged in the snow on top of Mailbox Peak. This day was so memorable, @natelowe, secretly recording his proposal... of course it couldn't be perfect, no, not until our dog's junk became front and center of the gopro footage. Needless to say we enjoyed every minute laughing til we cried. Our dog Toby still reminds us he is as much family as we are to each other.
#loveinthemountains #TBT throwback to september. Who else but @mermaidsandmountains would think that packing our wedding kits (and a bottle of champagne) 10 miles in to 14000' and taking pics would be the perfect way to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary?!?! So glad I found my adventure buddy for life!!! #trailrunnersandatux #champagnetastesbetterintitanium
