The clear weather really brings the features of Mount Rainier into sharp focus. Viewed from Paradise, you can see layers of lava that built the summit, with the upper portion of the Kautz Glacier carving down across them. . . #findyourpark #mountrainiernps #mrnp #mountrainier #pnw #nps [Description: A glacier flows down a rocky, mountain peak.] -kl

The majestic king of The Mountain 🐿 Give me a shout if you need to be in contact with his agent 😂
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

It's been a while since I did a #fridayintroductions post, mostly for lack of current pictures of my growing bump! 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 If you're new here you may have guessed that my name is Effie. I am a mom to TWO boys (Harvey is 2 and a half and this little one is due at the end of January) and wife to the amazing man who had the patience to take this photo of me. 📷 I am also a branding photographer and social media manager for everyday luxury brands in and around Tacoma, Washington. Photography keeps me sane on my worst days and working with social media has been a fun turn that I never would have guessed I would take on if you had asked me three years ago! 📲 I love sharing little bits of my life and work here on Instagram. It's kind of like a photo album of my favorite times and a diary of what is going on in my life all at once. ❤️ What's something that YOU love about Instagram?
Two Tahoma's are better than one.

I had to pull out my second warmest jacket today... Winter gave us a little preview of what's to come 😱😱 Throwback to the last time I had contact with snow back in May 2018 🥶

Obstacles...what are those when you can run through or around them?! Don’t let anything slow you down! 🏃 Here’s a snap of blue skies, mountain views and a fun adventure into the woods last weekend! Excited that this long week is almost over! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #obstaclecourse #runningmotivation #runthroughit #mountrainier #rainierwatch #discover_pnw #pnwcollective #livewashington #mountrainiernps #mountrainiernationalpark #mountainsarecalling #pnwonderland #findyourpark #thenwadventure #nationalparkgeek #discoverearth #optoutside #artofvisuals #upperleftusa #seattlepulse #seattlelife #seattlemet #visitseattle #igers_seattle #mountainsarecalling #putyourselfoutthere #exploreclub #landofadventures #five12life #iamanything
Fresh coffee in the middle of the forest, with mountains just feet away. Nothing better ☕🌲 - I am so in love with my @stanley_brand french press Miles got me! It made the perfect batch of coffee on our chilly mornings in Rainier. And I can't forget about my mug 😍 It is campfire safe, holds so much java and what makes the mug even better is that, for every product sold, @unitedbyblue removes ONE POUND of trash from our worlds oceans and waterways. It makes drinking my coffee out of it that much more satisfying 🖤 #Bluemovement

The mountains are calling... and I went.🏔
#tbt to our time at @mountrainiernps. During our trip we realized it was easier to send videos to our family instead of long texts or emails. Plus we wanted to share the beauty. This hike was one of the prettiest, most wonderful, amazing hikes I have ever been on. You cant see it in the video but that mountain side was steep and we weren't really prepared for snow but we made it. This is definitely a park I need to go back to. Also, if you're up to it definitely research free camping areas around the parks. Saved a lot of money this way and the sites are always way prettier than campgrounds and usually less crowded. #mountrainier #mountainhike #nationalpark #SnowPeakedMountains #getoutside #roadtrippers #roadtrip #mountains #mountaintrees #Camping #outdoors #saveourparks #nps #dirtbagging #freecamping #NationalForest #campfire #OptOutside #mountrainiernps #mrnp #findyourpark #foreverexploring
We are living on borrowed outside time right now! Can't believe how nice the weather still is this late in October. I thought for sure we'd have some snow by now.

Did you catch sunrise this morning? The Mountain was out again! 😍 | 📷 by @p.u.e.n.t.e #RainierWatch .
How about some more stars coming from Sunrise up at Mount Rainier. While I was shooting I met a guy with a massive telescope. It looked like it could have been used to shoot cannon balls. Anyway, he said he was looking for globular clusters. I've never heard of them before but it sounded pretty cool. He did let me take a look and it was amazing. I'm just glad I didn't knock his telescope over. It was probably worth more than my life 😀 - - #livewashington #pnw #pnwwonderland #upperleftusa #washingtonstate #washingtonexplored #pacificnorthwest #travelgram #cascadiaexplored #nikonnofilter #createexplore #awesome_earthpix #wonderfulplaces #travelingourplanet #travelawesome #pnw #bsharpphoto #d750 #nikon #hiking #washingtontrails #sunrisemountrainier #mountrainiernps #mountrainier #milkyway #longexposurephotography #astrophotography #stars #nightphotography #nps

Autumn in the mountains 🍁🌲🍂
The rockiest trails lead to the highest peaks. Stay positive, the tough times only make you stronger! 🧗‍♂️ It’s a good day for an adventure. With the sunshine peaking through the boulders, the brisk autumn air, and surrounded by fall colors, it’s a perfect time to get outdoors! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mountrainier #mountrainiernps #mountrainiernationalpark #mountainsarecalling #pnwonderland #findyourpark #thenwadventure #nationalparkgeek #discoverearth #optoutside #artofvisuals #seattle #upperleftusa #seattlepulse #seattlelife #seattlemet #visitseattle #igers_seattle #thatpnwlife #hispnwlife #mountainsarecalling #putyourselfoutthere #exploreclub #landofadventures #iamanything

Did yall see my story about my truck?? Cool right? That's an excellent ending to a day btw. Seeing your shit smashed with no explanation. Sure I was heated and wanted to kill, but accidents happen. It's like my week was going too decent and life was like ehhh let's rock her world a second. Brand new bumper that would destruct anything, but had to hit next to it of course.

Last week when I set out for Mt. Ranier I made a huge rookie mistake. I only packed one memory card. It just so happened to be the smallest 32g memory card I own.⠀ .⠀ As I set out on one of the most photogenic trails I have ever seen, my heart was so excited to get some amazing shots to share with you guys! ⠀ .⠀ I didn't even make it a mile into the trail before my camera was telling me that my card was full! To be honest, I was completely devastated. ⠀ .⠀ I couldn't bring myself to delete any of the photos I had already taken so the only other option was to continue on and use my cell phone! 😩⠀ .⠀ I took this shot using my iPhone X and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out all things considered. ⠀ .⠀ Mistakes happen, sometimes we just have to adapt and do the best we can with what we have! Taking this long exposure with my phone was actually very quick and easy!⠀ .⠀ Do you know how to shoot a long exposure using your phone? ⠀ .⠀ #mountrainier #mtraniernationalpark #blogmybacknm #queenofadventure #waterfallwednesday ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #jjwestcoast #westbysouthwest #westcoasthappiness #speechlessplaces #beautifuldestinations #galivant #travelwashington #washingtonexplored #nationalparkgeek #naturalwashington #pnwdiscovered #wanderwashington #mountrainiernps #thenwadventure #pnwparadise #pnwdiscovered #northwestexplored #pnwisbeautiful #washingtontrails #adventurerfeatured #pnwlifestyle #visitwashington #explorewashington #chasingwaterfalls #waterfallsofinstagram
Fog is full of secrets, it has mysteries beyond what the eye can see. I love how each step changes your view, from hidden lakes you come across to the mountain ranges in the far distance. . . . . . . . . . . _______________________________ _______________________________ #rainierwatch #cascadiaexplored #theNWadventure #IdRatherBeInNature #upperleftusa #onlyinwashington #naturalwashington #mountrainiernps #explorewashingtonstate #greettheoutdoors #alpinebabes #herpnwlife #TODSL #liveoutdoors #washingtonexplored #thewashingtonphotos #wildernessculture #livewashington #wanderwashington #briskoutdoors #pnwdiscovered #worldbestgram #bestofnorthwest #ShotoniPhoneX #earthoutdoors #awakethesoul #AllAboutAdventures #mist_vision #moodygrams
It was hard leaving #Seattle this morning, but a divine day at mighty #MtRainier awaited! We pretty much stuck to the #Paradise area and enjoyed #hiking until just about sundown. I didn’t really even look through all of the photos from today, but this one caught my eye. Ready to get some shuteye at #Nisqually Lodge before making the drive to Portland, Oregon in the morning! So glad we decided to @visitrainier and @mountrainiernps during our #PacificNorthwest extravaganza!
14,000ft. I’m craving being up high right now, I pushed my pace yesterday on my hike until my lungs burned. I can feel it in everything I do, I’m distracted everywhere, the mountains are consuming and you have to just let them consume you. I have mostly long multi-day hikes planned for next year but I just may have to get up high first... . . . #mountrainier #mountrainiernationalpark #mountrainiernps #herpnwlife #pnwwonderland #arcteryx #radgirlslife #radgirlscollective #liveauthentic #mountainlove #getoutside #getoutstayout #exploremore #campvibes #optoutside #earthfocus #rei1440project #seattlewa #VisitSeattle #LiveWashington #seattlepulse #goprohero #goprophotography

Douglas squirrels are usually solitary and territorial, but young squirrels may stay with their mother for up to a year. This curious young Douglas squirrel wasn’t sure about passing hikers, stomping its feet at a potential enemy. But was soon distracted by playing with its siblings. . . #findyourpark #mountrainiernps #mrnp #mountrainier #pnw #nps #squirrellife [Video Description: A small grey and red squirrels stamps its feet on a mossy log, before chasing several other squirrels around a tree trunk.] -kl
This spot is a ten minute walk from our apartment and it was showing off this morning!
Another one that’s best viewed large. I really like the clouds and shadows on this one.

Hiking before sunrise was actually really nice. Had the trail all to ourselves and witnessed a gorgeous sunrise, at Sunrise! My third lookout in two weeks! #mountrainiernps #hiking #optoutside #pnw #pnwonderland #RidgesAndMountainsAndMeadowsOhMy #whatsyour20 #getoffyourass
Bruh they already have Christmas commercials playing.. It should strictly be a rule that there's no Christmas nonsense until after Thanksgiving. And no Thanksgiving until after Halloween.

“There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.” #emeryallen #liveforyourself #mountrainiernps #pnwonderland #herpnwlife #washingtonexplored #choosemountains #pnw #seattle #upperleftusa #adventureoften #getoutside #liveyourbestlife
