So happy that I was finally able to run this canyon. One year ago I hiked to a beautiful double waterfall but couldn’t make it into the slots upstream on foot. This is what sparked sparked my interest in canyoneering. I’m still a novice but happy that I have new skills so I can explore new places as well as old places from a different perspective. #canyoneering #waterfall #canyoning . . . . . #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #pnwisbeautiful #cascadiaexplored #pnwroamers #pnwcollective #PNWexploring #PNW #pnwonderland #naturaloregon #pnwtameless #pnwuncovered #theNWadventure #jj_oregon #northwestisbest #ourpnw #ThatOregonLife #conqueroregon #discoverwashimgton #explorewashington #westbysouthwest

I so badly wanted to sleep in the woods this weekend. I found some friends heading out to #indianheavenwilderness and happily jumped at the chance to go. However, after hiking five miles in to our destination with the dogs also carrying packs, fighting mosquitos and heat along the way, coming across others who had aborted their trip, we too decided it was absolutely miserable. Mosquitos: 1 Humans: 0. Tired, dejected and sticky with so much deet that I’m probably sterile now, the backup plan was to call it a 10 mile training hike and head for a friend’s property. Excellent decision. I got to sleep in the woods and wake up to have my coffee on the #cowlitzriver and the #beaver gave me a little show too. #mtsthelens #mthood mtadams all seen from the trail ....… #herpnwlife #outdoorsociety #mountainafflicted #lovemylife #pnwhikers #pnwonderland #yonderwashington #pnw #pnwlife #pnwoutdoorwomen #trailtrotters #cascadiaexplored #wanderwashington #explorewashington #pnwisbest #k5explore #livewashington #washingtonexplored #alwayshiking #getoutside #lifeofadventure #forest #hikinglife #neverstopexploring #washingtonhikersandclimber

Tomorrow my job duties are going to change so that I'll be working on trails 40 hours a week. So today I thought I'd... [shakes eight ball] do some volunteer trail maintenance with @washingtontrails up at Baker. 😐 I know I'm sick, but building trails for the county is a lot different than working on the flanks of Kulshan. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend in the sun!

Lewis and Clark called this river by its Clatsop Indian name, Netul — but it was later renamed the Lewis and Clark River. It flows into the bay west of Astoria. The pilings in the river were installed early in the twentieth century to hold rafts of logs ready for towing to riverside mills. #oregoncoast #lewisandclark #corpofdiscovery #fortclatsop #ushistory #nationalparks #nationalpark #lewisandclarktrail #oregoncoast #pacificnorthwest #pacificcoast #pacificnorthwestisbest #pnw #thegreatpnw #pnwlife #pnwisbest #pacificnw #pnwwonderland #leftcoast #upperleft #upperleftusa #explorewashington #andrewandcraig

I did me a thang! I bought a cowboy hat. So did my sis. ALRIGHT!!! I really just bought it to keep the sun off my neck and head and didn't think I'd like it as much as I do!! @birdnerd_76#atwood #damnilookgood #giddyup #pnw #bbq #brews #blues #festival #goodtimes #explorewashington #cowboy

Snapped a few photos before my phone died. First time swimming here and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of picnic tables in the sun and shade. Fun area to swim. There were bathroom with showers and a little snack stand in case you didn’t bring enough food! We will be back :) #thurstoncounty #stateparks #olympia #tumwater #lacey #explorewashington #childhoodunplugged #play #sun #water

Center of Attention Last night I lit up this old flour silo from the inside and out, and set up my camera to snap several dozen long exposures.

Had an epic day of summiting Mount Adams. 6900 feet of vertical gain over 6 miles to achieve the 12,280 foot summit.

I kind of fell in love with my pretty horse "Bee" (even if her name doesn't really match her proud statue) and this charming cowboy ahead of me. He's been around in the country all over for summer horse riding seasons and returns to his home state Oklahoma every winter to train horses. What an american-cowboy-way-of-life🤩🐎🇺🇸 . . . . . #horse #horseriding #beachride #beach #cowboylife #longbeachwa #explorewashington #washingtonstate #americanwayoflife #pnw #pnwisbest #pacificnorthwest #westcoastin #adventure #visitusa #usa #stayandwander #reisen #reiselust #worldlust #exploringtheglobe #aroundtheworld #travwlawesome #travellover #travelgram #travellersofinstagram #fernweh #wanderlust #reiseblog #travelblogger

I always seem drawn to majestic red barns in the countryside.🌳⛰🌲 While exploring Orcas Island, I came across this beautiful red barn with happy grazing 🐏🐏sheep and had to snap a photograph!  This farm sits on 185- acre lush pasture near a mature conifer forest and marshland belonging to the Coffelt Farm. The farm is focused on sustainable practices, including organic farming methods. Their beef, pork and lamb are USDA inspected and butchered on site. You can stop by the farm-stand to browse their selection of meats, wool, fruits and vegetables Tuesday through Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.  To learn more about the farm browse:  http://www.coffeltfarm.org http://sjclandbank.org/coffelt-farm-orcas-island/ . . #coffeltfarm #orcasisland #islandlife #farm #sheep #womenwhoexplore #journey #relaxation #travelawesome #travelgram #happy   #explorewashington #clearsky  #washingtonstate #pnw  #thatpnwlife  #pnwonderland #sanjuanislands #eastsound #visitsanjuanislands

The tipping point of this trip was the 45 minute walk to get here from our hotel. Safe to say we took a cab back. #lincolnmemorial #washingtonmonument #exploredc #passporttocreativity #explorewashington #passionpassport

What a gorgeous day! We explored another new area today and even though it got pretty warm, it was still nice to get out. We put our feet in a nearby river afterwards and let Dakota swim for a bit to cool off, too. . . . . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #optoutside #rei1440project #washingtontrails #explorewashington #trails #lifeofadventure #liveyouradventure #pnwonderland #washingtonhikersandclimbers #pnwlife #thegreatoutdoors #thegreatpnw

Mt. Shuksan - Day 1. A mellow approach up into the alpine followed by massive views of Mt. Baker and the North Cascade range. With the blue skies came scorching hot temperatures. Once we got on the glacier, it was like trekking in a tanning booth. Totally worth the views though! • • #mtshuksan #pnwonderland #pnw #mountains #mountaineering #climbing #adventure #cascadeclimbers #northcascade #explorewashington #peaks #backpacking #glaciers #funisthebest • • @mdstud17 @u.s.forestservice @exploremagazine @americanalpine @alpinistmag @cascadeclimbers

My reading spot at the campsite was probably my favorite to date🏔 I'm heading back to the Enchantments tomorrow for a 3 day trip and we'll be swapping snow storms for lake swimming this time around

• There’s a mystery in the wood One that’s been whispered for ages That feels no restraints Is not affected by the passing of time • And I hear it I will my being to be still, And feel it • Just be Let the wild soak into your skin Let the stillness saturate you completely • Let your gentle heart become entwined with the rhythms of the wood And your soul with the damp earth that was once weary with no rain • You are a child of whimsy A daughter of the moonlight You are infinite and overflowing • • • • • • • • • • #hohrainforest #pnwisbest #pnwexplored #pnwparadise #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #northwestcreatives #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #wanderwashington #olympicnationalpark #olympicnationalforest #compassoutdoors #greettheoutdoors #getoutthere #findyouradventure #wearethewild #seekadventure #awakethesoul #divine_forest #raw_alltrees #thehub_trees #tree_brilliance #nature_worldwide_trees #enchanting_forest #bestnatureshots #the_gallery_of_magic #ethereal_moods #forest_masters #forest_captures

First stop on my thru-hike of the Enchantments yesterday, Colchuck Lake. It was just as beautiful as I had imagined, and the water really does look like that in real life . . . #lakecolchuck #colchucklake #colchuck #lake #hike #hiking #hikewashington #mountains #enchantments #thruhike #adventure #explore #explorewashington #washingtonstate #apanthropinization #allthefeels

Summer is for hiking up to very lightly traveled alpine lakes, when the sun is shining and the water is just right.

Epic Sunset The only thing I would tell people before they go hiking is to never underestimate the trail. This hiking trip was supposed to be easy and chill. There were three of us...one beef bulgogi..one chicken adobo..one beef rendang. We thought we could complete this hiking trip in 5 miles round trip easy (about 2.5 miles each way). 4 miles into our climb we still haven’t made it. We kept checking to make sure we went the right way. GPS said it was the right way. It was freaking hot outside so our excitement started to get on the low side. Despite our tiredness somehow we always found a way to entertain ourselves by joking if we were to see a bear we would be very much fucked cuz we got no bear spray. Hopefully if there was one, a bear would like beef bulgogi better than chicken adobo and beef rendang 🤣. Long story short after about 5 miles we finally made it to the top just in time for the golden hour and our excitement was in full force seeing the gorgeous Anacortes from above. 🤩 I have never seen anything like it before. Ok so the fun part just ended and we had to hike back down to the car in the dark woods and wildlife tends to be out more when it is nighttime. We saw some froggies and heard a bunch of strange sounds and thank god we saw no bears. As everyone says a picture speaks a thousand words and this was ours. Hope you all had an epic weekend 🤟 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #explorewashington #PNWdiscovered #pnwadventurers #exploretocreate #optoutside #roamtheplanet #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #letsgosomewhere #stayandwander #theoutbound #ourplanetdaily #theglobewanderer #folkscenery #wonderful_places #nakedplanet #feedyouradventure #roamtocreate #adventurethatislife #wildernessculture #folkgreen #modernoutdoors #alphacollective #getupandexplore #getoutstayout #beautifuldestinations #liveoutdoors #earthfocus #sunset #allaboutadventures @washington_hikers_and_climbers @hike.vibes @pnwonderland @_pnwlove

Holding these babes a little closer these days. I love watching them grow and learn through their sense of adventure, but I’m pretty sad my baby girl will be 4 tomorrow! I’m not sure I’m ready for the next step of life where I have no more babies. #enderstribe #denalienders #bridgerenders
