- Thor's Breath - . . One of the many wonders along the Oregon Coast is this volcanic sinkhole. When water enters from below and shoots out the surface, a geyser-like phenomena results. The water surge out of the opening can unpredictable, but that is part of the fun and challenge. How close to you dare get without getting soaked or toppled by the spray! This was a sunrise near high tide. . . *Fine Art Prints and Licensing available through Link in Bio or DM * . . . . . #teamvane #thorswell #capeperpetua #waterwonderland #oregoncoastlife #oregon #oregonstatepark #pnwexplorations #pnwcollective #pnwphotography #pnw #thatpnwlife #pnwisbeautiful ##pnwonderland #pnwisbest #pnwlife #pnwexplored #pnwwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pnwadventures #pnwliving #upperleftusa #pacificnorthwestisbest #oregoncoast #visitoregon #oregon_igers #beautifuldestinations #beautifulearthpix #oregonigers #igersoregon

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. ❄️🌨🌫⛄️
Definitely some deep snow areas on this mornings hike! 😅❄️ overlooking a frozen lake. Oregon beauty ♥️ #welovedit #weekendadventures
It's time for more weekend views like this.

Awesome day today exploring with @t_a_bb_y
A birthday well spent climbing sand dune trails and running through tall grass. Hopeful about some film images to be processed and developed soon.
I love mom, even when she makes me pose for the dumb camera 🤷🏻‍♀️🐾🖤 #dieselthedestroyer #husky #mutt #cute #adorable #love #furbaby #adventures #nature #pnwexplored #happydoggo #furbaby #dogsofinstagram #huskiesofinstagram #pupperlife

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

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. . 📸: @rohini9

Another great hike view brought to you by the Columbia River Gorge. - Finally made it back up on the Oregon side of the gorge to see some of the fire damage and the change in scenery. It’s still as gorgeous as ever, nature has a way of turning even a tragedy such as fire into a beautiful landscape. - #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwhiking #pnwlife #columbia #outinnature #outdoorexplorer #becomefree #columbiarivergorge #columbiariver #hikethegorge #angelsrest #portland #explore #exploremore #pnwexplored #instagram #instanature #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #nature_wizards #optoutside #year30 #hikingadventures #hiking_hobby

Oregon beauty! I don't know why I haven't posted these sooner but these were from our most recent Bend Trip that we took so Derek could fly his first helicopter. So exciting and such a fun, beautiful first family trip together. It was also boyo's and I first time there. I hope to live up there soon. 😊😁😍🤗🤩☺ #oregonbeauty #oregonexplored #oregon #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwexplored #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #love #myboys #helicopter #helicopters #bend

⭐️Bat Stars are a species of sea star that typically have five stubby arms (mush shorter than the large disc center that makes up their body) but can have up to as many as nine! ⭐️They use gill like features on their backs to breathe, and have a center “mouth” which is really an opening for their stomach to ooze digestive juices over their prey to break it down for easy digestion. ⭐️Bat stars are found in intertidal zones to a depth of 300 metres all along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to California. . . . #sandspit #sandspitbc #visitsandspit #haidagwaii #gohaidagwaii #lovehaidagwaii #explorebc #explorecanada 🍁 #travelnorthernbc #intertidalzone #seastars #ocean #oceantravel #beach #beachtravel #shinglebay #moresbyisland #pnwexplored

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? 😏

@mostwantedusa bracelets arriving next week at our Cannon Beach location and will be available online as well! Stay tuned! . . . #rachellemvibes #rmuniquelyyou #mostwantedusa #bracelets
Same old location but a bold and beautiful sunrise! While getting out of cozy bed is hard in winter, one of the thing that I love is 8am sunrise. Pretty much all the public parks, viewpoints are open by 7-730 and you can get there and enjoy sunrise. . . . . . . . . . . #big_shotz #seattle_igers #seattlephotographer #sonyalpha #upperleftusa #seattle #pnwlife #exploretocreate #justgoshoot #glazerscamera #citykillerz #sonyshooter #greatshotz #washingtonexplored #ig_color #skyline #cityscape #ferriswheel #washingtonstate #thatpnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwexplored #ig_cityscapes #citylights #cityviews #ig_captures #sunrise #ig_skyvibes #madewithmefoto #mybestcityshots
Went to Smith Rock a few weeks ago, and it was breath taking! I’ve gone on a hike a little more than once every 2 weeks that I’ve been home, and I’m really kicking myself for not getting out more before I left. There’s so much I haven’t seen in my own backyard! I can’t wait to see what else this beautiful state has to offer. #PNW #PNWonderland #PNWHiking #PNWExplored #ExplorePNW #Oregon #OregonHiking #OregonExplored #ExploreOregon #SmithRock #SmithRockStatePark #Hiking #HikingAdventures #OutsoorAdventures

Love this view from the Edmonds pier! 📷 by @carolynntulluck
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! ♥️
Friyay ✌️peace out
Take a moment and let it all soak in. ☺️
