Lots of people talking about visiting State Parks these days, and we wanted to join the good company. Although most state parks don’t offer quite the same backcountry experiences as you can get in National Parks, they have loads of trails worth exploring. And going now won’t risk the fragile environments that are being largely unprotected right now. So, #getoutsideandplay but #leavenotrace ! This shot is from the Trail of Ten Falls in Silver Falls State Park near Salem, Oregon. #drivehikerepeat #findyourpark #optoutside #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #neverstopexploring #goneoutdoors #westbysouthwest #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwhiking #pnwlove #pnwisbeautiful #fromwhereistand #freshair #wanderoregon #hikeoregon #silverfallsstatepark #upperleftusa #oregontrails #visitoregon #traveloregon #oregonisbeautiful
Stop. Pause. Wonder. Today was again proof that pushing for the summit is always the right choice. I thought about copping out of hiking the full loop as I sat on Mt. Si, since motivation to solo hike is sometimes low. But I got up and went, and Teneriffe did not disappoint. Sometimes you just have to give yourself a little kick in the butt and go. 😊 . Mt. Si and Mt. Teneriffe loop today. . . . #pnwoutdoorwomen #landscapephotography #girlswhohike #mountainlife #optoutside #washingtontrails #pnwonderland #wanderwashington #sheadventures #adventurestartshere #choosemountains #passionpassport #worldnomads #thatpnwlife #cascadiaexplored #pnwcollective #cloudscape #upperleftusa #pnwisbest #mountainadventures #themountainsarecalling #washingtonexplored #washingtonhikersandclimbers #pnwadventures #backcountrybabes #mountaintherapy #alpineadventures #washingtondiscovered #cloudyday #ourpnw

I popped out for a nice evening pedal down to the Edmonds Pier and got there just in time for a gorgeous sunset

Good ol Hermie saying good night. 😴
Stunning view from the Umpqua Hot Springs. The natural hot springs - nestled into the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon's Cascade Mountains - is open from sunrise to sunset. The view are spectacular and the turquoise pools are perfectly hot . . . #cascadiaexplored #nikon_photography #nikon #northwestisbest #pnw #greatnw #greatoutdoor #greatnorthwest #adventure #adventurous #ad #traveloregon #oregon #ExplOregon #OregonExplored #pnwdiscovered #exploregon #exploremore #winter #hotspring #bestoforegon #getoutstayout #thatpnwlife #stayandwander #upperleftusa #explorewildly

I lead my first Meetup hiking group today. Had 24 people show up and have a great time hiking at Wallace Falls. Next time we'll do something harder, but this was a good hike with rewarding views of several excellent waterfalls. . . . . . . . . . . . #52hikechallenge #discoverearth #cascadiaexplored #discoveramerica #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #optoutside #findyourpark #pnw #pnwlife #pnwphotographer #waterfalls #wallacefalls #thegreatpnw #pnwadventures #pnwisbeautiful #letsguide #googlelocalguides #nature #naturepic #hikers #hiking #hikingculture #adventure

When I think back on some of my earliest memories my mind drifts into dimly-lit, cavernous spaces, sonically strung with soaring arpeggiations and cascading melodies hanging above a densely harmonic baritone melange. Slicing through it all is the omnipresent ring of the lushest, clearest, most exquisite voice--at once fiercely dominant and completely enthralling: the sound of my mother's french horn reverberating off the walls around me. See, I grew up in symphony halls, following my mom to her rehearsals and concerts, in tow with my older brother and sister. We played games and read books beneath the musty seats of auditoriums, Brahms and Bizet, Schubert and Chopin our soundtrack--no headphones required. I learned from a young age the allure of rich textures and the temptation of a perfectly crafted melodic line (remember: no parallel fifths or octaves). I discovered the unique contribution of each instrument's voice to that living orchestral organism. To this day there is nothing like the aural experience of a live symphony. So much of my childhood experience around music translated into my career in photography when I grew older and picked up a camera. One element of orchestral music I learned to love is texture. My favorite photos have captivating textures; details that give a photograph a tactile aspect and give me the opportunity to mentally crawl into the scene and interact with the subjects. This photo, from Banff, captures an incoming snow squall that gives the mountains a texture like the stroke of a paintbrush. Looking into it, I can feel the chill of the air around me and the tiny pinpricks of snowflakes blowing against my face . . . . . . . . . . #banff #banffnationalpark #albertacanada #mybanff #travelalberta #explorealberta #discoveralberta #explorecanada #banfflife #travelcanada #imagesofcanada #tourcanada #enjoycanada #canadasworld #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #cascadiaexplored #roamtheplanet #bestmountainartists #ourplanetdaily #wildernessculture #wanderlustalberta #pnwphotographer #visualsoflife #loves_mountains #mountainworld #rockymountainhigh #canadianrockies

Around the Corner. One of many beautiful alcoves we discovered while exploring the incredible Coyote Buttes area. Around every corned and up every ledge there seemed to be something new to find and appreciate. ----------------------------------------------- Visit my website to purchase a print of this photo and for info on private instruction and group workshops! ----------------------------------------------- Shot Info: - Canon 5DIV, Canon 16-35mm 2.8L III, @indurotripods Stealth CLT404 - ISO100, 16mm, F11, 1/50s x3 exposures focus stacked. - Shot in RAW, processed with Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop
I love doing a time lapse on a day like today. Even though you can’t see the mountains (they do make a peek a boo appearance towards the end) the clouds have a magic all their own ❤️ Shot from a 2nd floor view room at the hotel.
Perhaps not the best weather for fishing, but a view like that and great company, I'll take no fish in the woods over stuck in the house any day. . . . #pnw #oregon #cascadia #pnwonderland #northwest #westcoast #northwestisbest #upperleftusa #getoutside #getoutandexplore #exploreoregon #cascadiaexplored #landscapephotography #optoutside #canon #oregonbushcraft #fishing #columbiarivergorge #woodslife #trails #winter #snowday
Here’s another cooooooool photo of my fraaaaaands! DM to book my for an in-home shooooot 😍
SNOW! ❄️ As much as I like to pretend I’m not a fan of the cold and snow. This New England girl gets really excited when there’s snow around. 😬 ———————————————————————— This year I plan on keeping track of how many miles I hike. Any suggestions on apps I could use to keep track?? 👇 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #laketwentytwo #pnwonderland #pnwparadise #pnwdiscovered #winterwonderland #winter #snow #hikewashington #pnwisbeautiful #washingtontrails #womenwhoexplore #stayandwander #upperleftusa #mountainlife #keepitwild #compassunion #whyihike #thegreatpnw #pnwwilderness #thenwadventure #cascadiaexplored #getlost #earthoutdoors #wanderwisely #livewithoutlimits #thegreatoutdoors #reflection #gameoftones #findyourmountain
It’s almost like snow days and freezing temps are specially made to cuddle up all cozy to the one you love 😍
Loved the way the frozen trees up higher contrasted with the ones closer to me.
26 👋🏼 AKA Sweet Sixteen Round 2 | who knew 10 years ago I’d come to love spending time outdoors and choose to spend my birthday hiking in the freezing snow ❄️ hbd2me (see my story from my actual Sweet Sixteen 😂)

Battery Point Light House_ Crescent City. It was quite dark when I arrived at the beach parking lot just west of Crescent City. There was a slight, cool, salty breeze from the north and the waves were splashing onto the base of the man made jetty as I walked along it, away from the beach, looking for a good angle to photograph the lighthouse. Finding a good location, I set up my tripod and camera and waited while the sky slowly brighted and the waves crashing against the jetty rose ever higher. All of a sudden the sky and ocean surface turned a rich, dark blue with only the bright beam from the lighthouse light breaking the mood. As the crashing ocean waves began to create ever larger puddles on the jetty walkway, I framed my shot, took several images and began to get my gear ready to leave. After a brisk walk back to the beach, carefully dogging the ocean waves and puddles, I breathed a sigh of relief, happy with the image that I had captured. #activenorcal #lighthouse #bluehour #norcal #outdoors #coastline #crescentcity #norcalphotographer #norcalphotography #norcalpulse #pnw #pnwphotographer #cascadiaexplored
