And suddenly you are 15, turning from a boy into a young man. Making me the proudest old man in the world!! 📷: @hikingsite #instanature #forest #arizonahiking #optoutside #hikewashington #hikingkids #hikeon #hikevibes #hikingweekend #hikenh

Today was long. And fun. And cold. And we ran all over Snoqualmie. And I can’t wait to stare at these two faces for the next few weeks while I work on their gallery

Looking for a Sunday hike tomorrow? One of our favorite hikes just outside Seattle is Franklin Falls! It’s PERFECT for the kiddos or a dog! 🐶 Make sure to read a trail report ahead of time and be prepared for possible snow! But if you’re ready to get out there we know you’ll love it just as much as we do!
Today's Hike was awesome. Snow on the ground and crisp cold air 😎🔥👌

This past week I was sick, unmotivated, and honestly just felt down. I pretty much just moped around like a sad slug. Today though, I realized that literally the only way for me to get to feeling better mentally and physically is to get back to the grind because progress doesn't just come down to talent, it comes from putting in the work even when you feel like a giant potato 🥔 So if your New Year's resolutions are fading, here's your motivation to get back at it. 😚

Went on an awesome hike with the @unlikelyhikers crew! We embraced Hamilton Mountain in the Columbia Gorge, and we departed sore and happy. It was good. . . . #hiking #nature #hikewashington #unlikelyhikers #sheexplores #lgbthikers #hamiltonmountain #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwow
We had the summit all to ourselves 👌
Here’s the look of her husky half, quite literally in the middle of grumbling her dissatisfaction. She is telling me to stop taking pictures and let’s get back to hiking. #pnwhiking #hikingwithdogs #halfhusky #backtalking #grumbling #pnw #pnwonderland #heropinion #wanderlust #hike #dogswhobacktalk #dogsofinstagram #autumnthedog #gooutside #ispeakdog #notranslationneeded #hikewashington #sillydog #mydog
What’s better than wishing you had a wider wide angle lens (when you’re nowhere near a camera shop)? Using a lensball! *finger guns* - Loving, loving, LOVING the 90mm macro. Next purchase may fall down to the 16-35 mm f/2. I’m super stoked about the idea of getting into astro photography. - Keeping to my resolution and getting some more lens ball practice. 🙌 - Extra: Some sweet moves on a snowskate feat. my travel partner @jbarrstuff. - - - #sonya7ii #90mmmacro #sony #teamsony #femalephotographer #washingtonstate #washingtontrails #washingtontrailsassociation #pnw #pnwwonderland #washingtonhikes #hikewashington #hikeoregon #pnwhiker #longexposure #weekendwarrior #lensball #macro #macrophotography #waterfalls #panthercreek #panthercreekfalls
Retracing our steps to the place that made us fall in love with the Pacific Northwest: Dog Mountain. Every time we come to the Columbia River Gorge, we can’t believe how lucky we are to live so close to these epic views! Remember to do something you love this weekend! #dogmountain #columbiarivergorge #clouds #thisiswinter
Panther Creek Falls attempt 2 was a success. - The trail itself is a walk. Simple, easy, and the payoff is huge! I’ve never seen a waterfall that was so majestic. - I wanted to check out Goose Lake (30 minutes up the mountain), and .... within 2 miles of the lake... we were stuck. It was pretty severe. Dug out the tires multiple times, tried to use bark to get traction. It was pretty bad. - Once again! No service, and no people... for 30 minutes. All of a sudden, some jeeps came rolling down the road and helped us out. It would have taken us at LEAST another hour and a half to get down on our own. Turning around wasn’t even an option. @jbarrstuff was a champ. I won’t give you any more shit about getting so much gear for the truck. - - - - - #sonya7ii #90mmmacro #sony #teamsony #femalephotographer #washingtonstate #washingtontrails #washingtontrailsassociation #pnw #pnwwonderland #washingtonhikes #hikewashington #hikeoregon #pnwhiker #longexposure #weekendwarrior #panthercreek #panthercreekfalls #panthercreektrail
Who knew a stump would be the perfect low-to-the-ground tripod? - My favorite ProMaster Scout tripod drowned a few weeks ago, so I’ve been using my old Manfrotto tripod lately ($60 — which was a ‘big’ purchase for me, in high school). - One HUGE thing I didn’t think I’d miss (on the Scout): the ability to shoot upside down! Getting a long exposure at ground level isn’t easy, unless you find a flat surface, or have a tripod that allows you to shoot upside down. - - - - - #sonya7ii #90mmmacro #sony #teamsony #femalephotographer #washingtonstate #panthercreekfalls #washingtontrails #washingtontrailsassociation #pnw #pnwwonderland #washingtonhikes #panthercreek #hikewashington #hikeoregon #pnwhiker #longexposure #weekendwarrior
I just love this dog. She’ll be 15 years old here in a couple months. She amazes me with how agile and strong she still is. 9 miles, 4000ft vertical gain in icy conditions. She makes me so proud! #mygirl #bestfriends #dogsthathike #olddogchronicles #hikewashington
We're seeing red, but we're not mad about it. 😍 PC: @prettyflyforawhitesti
I have found my new favorite spot to watch sunrises and check out mountains 😍☺️☀️🏔

A sea stack on Ruby Beach, in the coastal section of Olympic National Park, about 25 miles south of Forks, Washington. These free standing columns of rock are formed over time when wave erosion has caused the headland surrounding them to collapse. They provide safe havens for sea birds, and a small glimpse into how the coast would have looked in the distant past. #rubybeach #olympicnationalpark #beaches #reflections #rockformation #pacificbeach #beachwalk #reflectiongram #washingtonexplored #hikewashington #olympicpeninsula #hikingadventures #hikingculture #exploremore #getoutside #exploreeverything #adventureisoutthere #lonelyplanet #goexplore #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #wildernessculture #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #exploreourearth #adventureculture #departedoutdoors #washingtonstate #hiking #pnwdiscovered @matadornetwork

The Eagle Creek fire of 2017. Heartbreak as I watched this from the Washington side of the Columbia River 😭
I am an engineer at this big scary company doing big scary things trying to figure out my big scary life. I honestly don’t have a 10 year plan. I don’t even have a 5 year plan. I have a today plan. I’m going to wake up tomorrow and be happy. I’m going to do things I want to do with people I want to be with. By 10pm tomorrow I could be anywhere. I love that. I love having uncertainty in tomorrow. I think people early in their career want to pretend like they know where they are going. Life is a river, not a highway. And honestly you never know which direction you’re going to turn. . . . . . . . . . . . #hikewashington #hiker #mtpilchuck #seattlehikes #aviation #engineeringwomen #womeninengineering
#Repost @ellen.haines ・・・ When you’re actually walking on air. 🙃 . . I had such a productive week!

Also, just kicked off the weekend with a fabulous class from the lovely @morgan_smile (thanks girl! 😘) featuring free post class juice from @pressedjuicery BOOM! 👊🏼 . . . . . #pnwonderland #pnwhiking #getoutside #pnwlife #pnw #optoutside #fridayfeels #hikewashington #hiking #lifeoutdoors #goexplore #stayandwander #seattleyoga #mountainscape

I love places like this, they provide the perfect escape from the chaos of the world. When my head and my heart get overwhelmed I always find that walking through forests and admiring the beauty of mountains puts our lives into perspectives. Nothing is too big to overcome and in reality our problems can all be solved as long as we have the courage to face them. Where do you go to find your peace? . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #mountains #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer
The beaches in Washington are unlike any I’ve ever seen! With steep cliffs dropping off to sandy beaches filled with driftwood and decorated with numerous haystacks, it’s quite a sight to see. If you ever have the chance to visit WA, you must check out the beaches on the Olympic Peninsula ✌🏼 . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer #beautifuldestinations
