Regardless of where we go in the world, I continue to be blown away by my home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The PNW is a huge, wonderful, and wild part of the world that's full of adventure and places to explore. If you allow it, the untamed, raw wilderness will pull you in and open a world you can't even imagine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ www.explorethemap.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #herpnwlife #pnw #pnwlove #pnwcollective #pnwwomen #pnwow #pnwparadise #pnwdiscovered #pnwhiking #pnwadventures #wishyouwerenorthwest #pnwcaptures #pnwunplugged #bestofnorthwest #viewsfrompnw #travelblogger #outdoorblogger #freshairandfreedom #outdoortones #earthoutdoors #wildernessnation #stayandwander #explorebc #hellobc #ilovebc #girlswhohikebc #beautyofbc #britishcolumbia #discoverbc #tourismbc

Enjoyed a nice urban hike yesterday with @astronautgardener Joined her at one of the womxn’s marches in Seattle. The turn out was really small(it was poppin on Saturday I guess) but it was better than no one showing up. After the mini march we walked to Capitol Hill as she was showing me places I’ve never been too. I use to go to Seattle a lot when I was younger but now that so many people have moved here now I go every once in a blue moon. We end up over at Lincoln Park which I can see why it’s one of her favorite spots to go too. I’m glad we came on the day of the Full Moon because the water was just powerful and you could definitely feel it. This park gave me some Point Defiance vibes lol It was nice to combine a hike with the concrete jungle, woods and water with amazing company ✨ 📸- @astronautgardener (my edits) Hike 4/52 in Seattle on Duwamish Lands . . #naturephotography #naturephotos #naturelovers #iphonephotography #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #pnwoutdoorwomen #pnwp #pnwlife #pnwhiking #pnwadventures #pnwcollective #thatpnwlife #washingtonstate #washingtonlife #washingtonhiking #getoutside #optoutside #exploremore #xtcoutdoorlife #idhikethat #hikinglife #lightroomccmobile #upperleftliving

A few weeks ago we took the Wahkiakum ferry to cross from Washington to Oregon. I had no idea that sea lions came this far up river 🌤

Yes, there have been an over abundance of Lunar Eclipse images from last night. But, I love this stuff! And, super happy we had some hours without clouds to capture some of the start and finish. These were shot at an effective 800mm #lunareclipse #bloodmooneclipse #bloodmoon #fullmoon #wolfblood #wolfbloodfullmoon
Port Madison in the moonlight (this was five hours after sunset). 10 sec exposure. The 25 kt winds on the sail over faded to dead calm in this sheltered cove. With the bright moonlight came huge tides... 13 feet of sweep overnight. 1970s 28mm prime lens. #portmadison #sailing #moonlight #ricohpentax #discoverwashington #teampentax #pnwadventures #salishsea #washingtonexplored
Definitely wish I was here rather than stuck in bed! Poor Kevin was plagued with the flu this weekend and no matter how many emergen-c packets I took / immunity I thought I had from it since I had it last year, I seem to have caught it! Here’s to hoping it goes away quickly! *chugs more emergen-c*
Up before the sun - I love mountain mornings, with C it's a bit harder to tell😂 #humboldt #pnwadventures
"I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter's tough, but spring's coming. I believe that there's a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better. " by Steve Southerland • With our heavy backpacks on, we negotiated with whatever obstacles in front of us and we moved forward. ° ° ° ° ° ° ° #northwestnature #optoutside #neverstopexploring #hiking #exklusive_shot #lovenature #keepitwild #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #theoutbound #liveauthentic #wildernessculture #pnwphotographer #adventureculture #ournaturedays #getoutdoors #pnwwonderland #landscape_lovers #shehikes #snowhike #outdooradventures #photography_lovers #landscapephotography #pnwadventures #pnwisbeautiful #naturephotos #winterwonderland #quoteofday
The other day, playing outside with Jase while the babe napped, making snow angles and looking up at this. Perspective. . We’re pretty darn small in this universe, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a big impact. Impacts can be anything, but I hope to instill in my kids that they should be positive. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Give kindness. . The list goes on and on, but in this tiny world and the short amount of time we have in it, I hope you are off making an impact in one way, shape, or form.

Good Morning!☀️Did anyone have a good view of the eclipse last night? It was cloudy for us.🌓😔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s always so fun waking up to a fresh snow here in Bend! I was able to get one photo of our backyard blanketed with snow before our pups went out yesterday morning and ruined this pristine look.👌🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have been able to keep our firepit furniture out all year due to the light winter conditions, my guess is that the snow will be melted by tomorrow and the firepit will continue to be used as usual! 🔥 👌🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Monday!❤️✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #backyard #winter #getaway #adventure #winterishere #visitus #oregon #bendoregon #staywithus #pnwlife #staymore #vacationhome #booknow #travel #visitcentraloregon #northwestisbest #airbnb #airbnbsuperhost #airbnblife #husbandandwifeteam #airbnbhomes #airbnbhomesteads #petfriendly #inbend #vacationrental #pnwadventures #pnwonderland #getoutside ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lovewhereyoulive #staylocal
Words cannot describe how much I love this little munchkin. He is my heart and soul in this world. Weve both grown a lot in this past year and I'm excited to keep on adventuring with him and seeing all the incredible things he can take on for such a little dog. Love you baby boy ❤ - #agirlandherdog #myboy #keepexploring #adogslove #specialbond #dogsthatexplore #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #adventurepup #dogadventures #traildog #wildernessculture #westcoastdog #pnwadventures #pnwdogs #shihtzu #shihtzugram #shihtzuswag #dogfeatures #bestwoof #dailybarker #barkhappy #scenicviews #dogphotography #smalldogsdoingbigthings
He whispered to me "in a path of darkness, be your own light". I opened my eyes and kissed him goodbye. #pnwwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #cascadiaexplored #costalhike #outdoorproject #pnwadventures #herpnwlife #herpnwadventures #outdoorbound #pnwhiker
Celebrated Jose's birthday this weekend adventuring around the Olympic peninsula. At Kalaloch beach, even at low tide, the ocean covered the sand. We dared to venture out, sprinting from logs and rocks between wave breaks, but still a few waves ate us when we couldn't get high enough. Because the tide was rising, we eventually lost the ability to roam the beach so we were forced to rock climb to avoid the waves. We ascended and descended cliffs, which was a first for us, and I learned that I have a small fear of climbing down ledges. Thankfully Jose and Chris were there to both pull me up the rocks and guide me down. Chris's favorite things to say were "This is the fun part" and "This is the be careful part" which both translated into varying degrees of upcoming dangerousness we would be encountering. Definitely an adventure with two of my favorite people. P.S. swiping to the end shows a few videos of the waves from the log I took shelter on, a rock formation, and the first cliff we ckimbed . #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwander #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #idhikethat #wanderwashington #thegreatpnw #herpnwlife #explorewashington #pnwisbeautiful #pnwdiscovered #pnwexplored #pnwadventures #upperleftusa #pnwisbest #pnwhiking #pnwcollective #neverstopexploring #hightide #kalalochbeach #olympicpeninsula #olympicnationalpark #ocean #beach
Take me back to the weekend...
I’ve decided to take weekends off from posting on insta. This started as me forgetting to post last weekend and then seeing how I would feel not posting again this weekend. Social media is fantastic as a marketing tool, but there’s a distinct feeling of being chained to it: must post, must produce content, must comment back right away, must beat the algorithm. And keeping up with that 365 days a year is just not something I can do right now. In the constant struggle to gain visibility, there’s little room for boundaries, but you have to set them somewhere. So when you don’t see new posts from me on the weekends, now you’ll know why.

Coming back to our campsite after a successful summit of Ruth mountain earlier last year (May 2018) Ruth mountain is approached via hannegan pass and over the almost dead Ruth glacier Easy and gentle approach and great views of Shuksan and the Baker glaciated areas For those doing the basic alpine course with the mountaineers, this one and Meany crest via Whitman glacier are good easy/backup options #ourpnw
A couple of hours late to the lunar eclipse😂
My happy place... 🤥🤗
When the sweet ache of being alive, lodged between who you are and who you will be, is awakened, befriend this moment. It will guide you. Its sweetness is what holds you. Its ache is what moves you on. -Mark Nepo #perfectendtotheweekend #marknepo #poetry #sunset #myheart #pnwlove #waves #sunday #pnwadventures #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnw #pacificcity
Today was nuts. I’m so exhausted. Eric and I did over 16 miles and more than half of that in snow shoes. The clouds over the Skagit River didn’t want to leave but we caught glimpses of the mountains and it made for some interesting light. Time for lots of 🛌 😴 Thanks to our new adventure buddies for sharing in the journey! @laura.berridge , Paul, and Ellie!
Continuing on with our celebration of / shameless bragging about our students in our #movingon #motivationmonday series... Meet Duncan. After crewing for some boats on the local #vancity circuit, this intrepid Kiwi decided to get serious about #sailing as a career! He took our #dayskipper course in April 2018 on pretty #Paragon and with that firm foundation under his feet, launched into racking up some serious miles with two open ocean deliveries. He helped bring #turnagainadventures home to Vancouver from Hawaii, and helped another yacht make the trek from Darwin to Cairns in the land of Oz. Now Duncan is back in Auckland, New Zealand and working in the yachting industry as crew for Explore. This day charter company runs tours around the Hauraki Gulf on retired America’s Cup boats... and sometimes they even get to match race the yachts against each other for some extra fun! We’re so thrilled to see Duncan pursuing his goals and landing such a sweet gig right off the bat! Can’t wait to see where sailing takes him next 😎 Fair winds and following seas in all future adventures! #duncanisasailor #belikeduncan #learntosail #learntorace #seatoskystyle #neverstopexploring #pnwadventures #nzsailing #crewlife
@hellopacer spent the weekend with me and we had a tiny relaxing visit to @thegrottopdx AFTER we really daaaaanced
