I got the chance to hike Hamilton Mountain a few days ago. Great hike with great views throughout 🗻⛰️💦🏞️
Adventure awaits! Take 20% off all of our Pacific Northwest inspired gear now @pacnorwesty
What a contrast in weather - from sunny hawaii adventures back to rainy/snowy adventures in Washington. ❄️🌨🌫⛄️
It's time for more weekend views like this.
The fog today was awesome 🔥
A frosty day in the foothills of the east cascades ❄️
A birthday well spent climbing sand dune trails and running through tall grass. Hopeful about some film images to be processed and developed soon.
Mount Doug beach, Victoria 🌲
Exploring in the snow has given me a new appreciation for winter but man I am so excited for the warm weather to roll back around for all the camping and backpacking trips I’m planning
New product line of organic, handcrafted paw balm is in production... in my very own kitchen! Go watch the series of videos in our stories to learn more! 🐾
Just a man 'miring his wilderness home. Ok but story time: this was our first time sleeping in this particular super duper lightweight tent. In the middle of the night, it started seeming eerily like a large animal (or worse, a human😱) was patting or hitting our tent in random places repeatedly. We were outside an hour prior taking astro photos and there hadn't been any wind, so it was confusing and hard to explain what was causing it. I was so scared my body was violently and uncontrollably shaking 😅 Somehow, Jake harnessed some superhuman bravery and went outside to check it out. He didn't find anything although it paused while he was outside of the tent with the door open (the door being open must've affected how the light wind was impacting it or something) and so I tell him that he not only saved my life when he pulled me back up after I fell off a ridge trail the following morning, but also when he chased away the wind monsters in the middle of the night. 😄😄 If anyone has any tips for adjusting to sleeping in backpacking tent and actually getting a solid rest, send them my way! I definitely plan to do more backpacking this year :D
Staying inside this weekend dreaming of beautiful places like this 🏔🥰
This is WOWW😮
Commonly thought to be named after the sound made by people viewing it- WOWW stands for ‘Window on Washington Waters’. This 120,000-gallon exhibit is filled with hundreds of fish and invertebrates indigenous to the Pacific Northwest’s local waters. It is designed to replicate the seascape around Neah Bay, a richly populated marine environment located at the northwest tip of Washington State.
Looking at dogs > looking at the camera
Washington nuclear project number 3 and 5 started construction in the late 1970's, but by 1983, both had ceased construction. While there isn't any hope of ever seeing these 2 units of the project coming to fruition, they make for a pretty awesome weekend visit. I think they should make some alterations and transform this goliath into the words largest jacuzzi. That would work, right? Yeah... that would work fine. Should I start a GoFundMe? 😏

We saw Harper playing in her water dish the other day, so I decided to put her in the bathtub last night. 😬
Swipe to see her blowing bubbles. 😂🙈🐠
I’ve been avoiding posting this one because the Instagram crop feature doesn’t do it any favours. Swipe left to see the full-size!
11 days til the next adventure 😁🌴 and many many more to come 🌎
Also, if you’ve been following along, I’m really stoked about the discussion happening in my stories right now. I’ve saved them all as a highlight under “Sustainability” if you’ve missed anything. I definitely have strong opinions on this subject and I always want my account to reflect who I am even if it turns people (the wrong people!) away 😂. I’m definitely NOT perfect but I’m always striving to do better to reduce my carbon footprint and I love that people are second-guessing their actions and contributing ideas. Seeing this type of engagement is extremely uplifting! It’s selfish to enjoy the beauty of nature without giving back and trying to fix the problem. Thanks for all your feedback and I’d love to hear about your progress! ♥️
Take a moment and let it all soak in. ☺️
