52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“If at first you don't succeed... try, try again.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - a glance at 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Powered by passion and inspired by the Northwest, join me as I journey through life as an entrepreneur on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others, and in our community… one step at a time, one week at a time.


Mount Ellinor. If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again. And again. And again. Until you see the view from the top. This was my 4th time hiking this mountain and was the first time I could see more than 5 feet in front of me. For some reason, every time I explored here, the weather would not cooperate. Well this week, with the forest fires still burning in the cascades and by Rainier, the only safe option was to visit the Olympics and hope for the best! I knew that the smoke would affect the views but I decided to go for it anyway. And WOW was it everything I had hoped for, and more. As I climbed several stairs to reach the summit, the layers upon layers of mountains became more visible with every step. And at the top, you can see Lake Cushman below, which makes for an incredible place to enjoy some snacks and watch the sunset. Just don't forget your headlamp because it is so fun and slightly terrifying hiking down in the dark!

The 52 Difference.

My goal each year is to transform the lives of 52 homeowners as I guide them through their home purchasing or listing experience. 

For every home sold, I donate $52 to Washington Trails Association in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the PNW.

Support Local.


"All out yoga began one day when I was at Greenlake doing yoga alone just gazing at the water feeling the sand on my fingertips and inhaling all the different trees in my view. I loved being outdoors, breathing in all the earth's fresh oxygen that would fill me with a peace I could not explain. I always loved to try new difficult yoga moves to challenge myself. I sent a picture to my husband of myself in crow pose. He sent a text back saying dang you go all out. I was trying to think of what I should call my yoga. He says "alloutyoga".

First, go all out for yourself. Push yourself to your limits, and follow your dreams and passions. You have them in your mind and heart for a reason. I believe it's to help others in some way. Yoga can help with strength, balance and flexibility. Yoga helps with back pain and arthritis pain. Yoga helps you sleep better and manage stress.

And secondly, go outdoors. The benefits of going outside are tremendously healthy and healing to our bodies, souls and minds. Being outdoors lowers blood pressure, decreases stress helps with depression, naturally soothes your soul and grounds you to be one with mother nature. Which scientifically shows healing properties that boost energy, helps mitigate pain, boost you immune system, enhance creativity, restore focus, and become a better person by helping shrug off societal pressures, allowing us to remember the value of more important things like, relationships, sharing, and community.

My goals are to bring outdoor yoga to all the communities of the pacific northwest. I strive to become a non-profit that can bring free outdoor yoga to all people regardless of their finances, race, sex, fitness level, or any situation that would keep them from being their best selves. My favorite quote from Maya Angelo "When you know better you can do better."

When you know how to help yourself, care for and love yourself. Then you can help others do the same."

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your goals Charity!!! I absolutely love coming to your outdoor yoga class and can't wait to join you again soon! You are the best!!!
