Colder temps have me thinking about wood burning fires and tiny cabins. Whether we like it or not, winter is coming! . . .

You can run, but you can’t hide 😬 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Up in the mountains, it feels like every river eventually ends up as a waterfall at some point. It’s like a game of hide and seek sometimes trying to find them - following the sounds of running water till it’s a deafening roar 🌊. . . . No matter how many boulders or branches I climb over, it’s always worth the hunt, though. I never met a waterfall I didn’t like 💙. . . . 📸Another favorite from my waterfall chasing sessions with @thegirlwhohikesinpearls •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #pnwhiking #naturesounds #earthpix #discoverearth #waterfallchasing

Taking a Peak 👀😂 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Still reminiscing on this incredible view from Summit Peak overlooking a hidden mountain lake with Mt. Rainier posing as the perfect backdrop 🗻. If you are visiting Washington and looking for a perfect day hike or even a place to backcountry camp for the weekend, this place is absolutely perfect 🎒! . . . The peak of Summit Mountain is the end prize of this gorgeous hike. From here you can loop back down on one of two paths that circle down to Summit Lake, a perfect place to set up camp for the night 🏕. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #washinggtonstate #thepnw #pnwwonderland #fairytale #bluelake #evergreen #summit #mountrainier

Lost in Never Never Land ✨ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Can’t help feeling like I’ve stepped into a real life fairy tale every time I see a place like this 🌟. Everywhere you go in the PNW there are gorgeous cascading waterfalls mixed with stunning mountain peaks and epic views 👀. . . . I’ve definitely been chasing waterfalls this year and it’s hard to pinpoint a favorite, but this one has earned a top spot on my list 💦. The hike to get here follows along a gorgeous river through a bright green forest. You can continue up to the second level of the falls for a totally different view/vibe (pictured in a previous post). . . . ✨Where have you been that felt like a total fairy tale?! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #waterfall #peterpan #neverneverland #fairytale #naturephotography #pnw

My favorite kind of calm 💙 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I didn’t believe bright blue lakes really existed anywhere other than Canada, or at least not in the continental U.S. I’m happy to have been proven quite wrong with this incredible Washington hike ⛰! . . . This lake on the way to the summit is the absolute perfect place to camp and soak up some peace and quiet. Just beyond where I’m sitting there were a few tents set up with this view of Mount Rainier peaking out in the background🏕. I’m not sure about you but I could definitely get used to waking up here! . . . I’ve still got a few more gems to share from the PNW, but stay tuned for some exciting new places to check out overseas🗺! . . . Hike 22/52: Summit Lake 🏃🏽‍♀️Distance: 6 miles RT or Loop 🔝Elevation Gain: 1,450 FT ⏱Time: 2.5 hours ••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #washinggtonstate #thepnw #pnwwonderland #fairytale #bluelake #evergreen #summit #mountrainier

How often do we take the time to stop, breathe, observe, wonder, stay present, in the moment? It easy to get caught up in taking pictures, rushing by, letting ourselves get distracted, staring at our phones, and forgetting to embrace the wonder of the world that surrounds us. I am just as guilty as the next for reaching for my phone first thing in the morning, using it as a coping skill for awkward social situations, escaping reality by getting lost on the net. Even my camera gets utilized as a distraction and if I dont stay aware and remind myself that the photo isnt as important as the moment. Just being in that moment. I practice capturing my moment to share with others, what I see, what I feel, my perspective of the world through images. But I easily lose that perspective if I dont stop, and get present with my surroundings. It's a challenge for me, but life passes by so quickly if I forget to stay present.

Even just a taste of her replenishes my soul, it sets my passion on fire. If you have ever been outdoors with me you have had a glimpse of the high mother nature gives me. Grateful to get a giant breath of fresh air this weekend.

Today was a fairytale✨ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• If you want to feel like you are walking in a dream, look no further. The entire PNW is full of opportunities to find magic hidden within the forests and mountains🍃. . . . This incredible waterfall hike follows a creek through moss covered trees the entire way to the base of the falls 🌿. The view from the base is incredible but the top of the falls offers an entirely different perspective. . . . Hike 21/52: Falls Creek Falls 🏃🏽‍♀️Distance: 5.1 miles RT 🔝Elevation Gain: 1,079 FT ⏱Time: 2.5 hours ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #pnwwonderland #pnwlife #lovethelifeyoulive #fairytale #naturelovers #waterfall #washingtonstate

Along the icefields parkway between Banff and Jasper are some pretty incredible spots. This overlook of Peyto Lake was one of my favorites. Absolutely stunning setting and beautiful water colored by particles running off from a nearby glacier. Also, I just want to say thanks so much for 1500 followers! I really appreciate having people to share my work with as well as finding inspiration from the things you do!

When is the last time you gave yourself the gift of time? 🕑 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• These days it seems we are always busy doing something. Constantly working, exercising, taking care of others, pursuing our dream careers, increasing our education, attending social events, checking social media, the list goes on and on📝. I myself am most definitely guilty of filling in every inch of my spare time with something that takes up my time 📆. . . . Stumbling upon this guy with a plan to do nothing but lay in his hammock on top of this mountain and enjoy the views all weekend was really inspiring🏔. It reminded me how important it is to take the time every so often to do...nothing. Doing nothing even in small doses (like 20 minutes of daily meditation) ironically helps boost overall productivity, motivation, creativity, and your general mood😆. . . . It may not always be possible to spend a whole weekend in solitary confinement on the top of a mountain, but it is possible to take a day or even just an hour every so often and dedicate it to creating space ⌛️. The next time you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, turn off your phone and the tv, shut down your laptop, clear some time, get outside and just breathe! . . . ✨What do you do to create space and refresh your mind? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #dailyinspiration #meditation #healthfirst #pnwwonderland #pnwlife #thegreatoutdoors

Flow through life’s obstacles 🌊 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Something about the way water moves in nature is so mesmerizing. The way it fluently continues running regardless of what lies in its path💧. It always seems to get to where it’s going. . . . This was my first hike in Washington State and I’m so grateful that we got it entirely to ourselves 🌲. We didn’t get here till late evening with just an hour left of daylight, but it turns out the early bird isn’t the only one who gets the worm 🙃. . . . Hike 19/52: Twin Falls 🏃🏽‍♀️Distance: 3.8 miles RT 🔝Elevation Gain: 967 FT ⏱Time: 2-2.5 hours ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #hikevibes #amongthewild #adventureenthusiasts #atlantaworld #herpnwlife #pnwonderland #pnw #twinfalls

Haven't been able to get over how beautiful this canyon was. We had heard from someone that you could drive by the Grand Tetons and basically see it all. I would have to disagree for sure! I mean, they are amazing at first sight but they are more than what is seen from the road. You gotta stop. Take a hike. Experience the 360° view. 👍💙🌲📷 #naturesbeauty #grandtetons #hikingworldwide #hikingadventures #outdoorproject #mountains_await
