I drove through 30 miles of fog to this viewpoint. Fortunately, just one mile from here I finally came out of the fog to witness this beautiful scene at sunrise. #oregon #oregonnw #cascadiaexplored #natgeolandscape #fantastic_shotzs #allbeauty_addiction #exceptional_pictures #gottolove_this #picture_to_keep #landscapephotomag #landscape_lovers #nature_skyshotz #bestnatureshots #jj_oregon #jj_skylove #pdx #portlandoregon
Even the thickest fog can't hide a glorious October Seattle sunrise.

The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
. The trees are in fact not the same. They range from green, red to orange. She said the waterfalls don’t look the same either. They flow differently, they sound differently . Being outside isn’t just about wether or not it looks the same. It feels different. If you listen closely, you feel closer to life. We spend so much time scrolling, liking and etc. But what about connecting, feeling and listening. . Close your eyes and breathe. Hear the sounds of life, the birds, the squirrels, the wind. This is better therapy than anything. Feeling alive, finding the beauty in the small things. Not focusing on what we don’t have or what we should be doing in life. . Find the good in everyday. Take the day and know your doing the best that you can. By being present. Tune into your thoughts, feel your emotions. Because that is rare, that is real and we don’t do it enough. I want you to feel, feel it all don’t be afraid. ✨

This is what happens when orange is used for good and not evil...
....and we are off! One of Zoe’s favorite places is to the beach!! So for the one of last few days of our Indian summer we are headed to play on the beach and whale watch! She has been a bit tentative and a nervous Nelly in the car the past few days and we are hoping she will settle and start enjoying these solo adventures with us!! being a black dog she is harder to photograph and catch her personality.#oregonbeauty #oregonnw #vieworegon #oregonexplored #oregonlife #youroregon #pnw #bofo1k #amateurphotographer #naturelovers #natureaddict #serenity #hikingadventures #rei1440project #optoutside #theoutbound #exploremore #traveloregon #thenwadventure #bestoforegon #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #eveni #schnauzer #schnauzersofinstagram #schnauzerlove #oregoncoastadventure #findingthebeautyineverything #herpnwlife #oregonisbeautifull
Nothing tops the drive home from deep in the Cascades after a bluebird day full of leaf-peepin’ and hiking amongst giant volcanos.

Using our own hands to build our own stuff is simply gratifying, a medicine for the soul and a wonderful energy outlet. Plus, no need for the gym 😉 🇱🇸🤸🥰 #happysaturday
I just did the math and realized I have moved nine times in the last four years. Nine. Times. That is too many. It’s made me realize how much I love having plants. I feel rooted when I have plants around but they’re also awfully hard to move over and over again. Do you have something that always makes you feel like you’re home? . . . #keepitwild #onthepath #neverstopexploring #oregonisawesome #greatnorthcollective #oregonnw #traveloregon #sunsets #peoplescreatives #pnwonderland #hikelife #rimby #stayandwander #letsgosomewhere #clymblife #mountainstones #awakethesoul #amongthewild #nrthwst #wishyouwerenorthwest #52hikechallenge2018 #allaboutadventures #humanpoweredadventures #idratherbeinnature #pnwdiscovered #cascadiaexplored #bestofnorthwest #beautifuldestinations #livepnw #outdoorexplorer
Tress, music and sunshine make for good road trip vibes! 🙌
Portland is totally courting me with this amazing fall weather.
My face when people dispose of their food waste directly onto the trail. Do you want bears? Because that’s how you get bears. If you pack anything in, pack it out. Protect our public lands. Does anyone know what Leave No Trace principles are?

Do not fret when the road starts winding for that is part of the fun, so lean into the curves stay focused and enjoy the ride
Sad to admit it, but this is my first morning sunrise hike, and the first time I’ve intentionally woke to see a sunrise in many, many years. We woke up at 3:20, drove for 2 hours, and hiked for 60 minutes up a rather steep trail for this gorgeous view. From where we were you could see St. Helens, Rainier, Adams, Hood, and Jefferson. I think we need to do this again! #sunrise #sunrisehike #hiking #cascadiaexplored #giffordpinchot #adventure #petzl
Sawtooth ridge as seen from Horsehead Pass. Fitting name if you ask me, looks pretty toothy.
What a beautiful fall day today in Portland! 🍁 Katy and I took a walk this afternoon down at the park and it was gorgeous. This has been the nicest October in recent years and I’m trying to take advantage of the sun before the much needed rain moves in. If you haven’t already, step outside to soak it in! ☀️. . . . . . #oregonexplored #livewashington #canonusa #fallcolors #jj_oregon #outinoregon #cascadiaexplored #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #pdxnow #a7ii #ptown #sonyalpha #pnwonderland #oregon #pnwisbeautiful #visitpnw #portlandnw #portlandoregon #theNWadventure #traveloregon #iloveoregon #keepportlandweird #oregonnw #theoutbound #pdxavsquad #pnwisbeautiful #travelportland #outdoors
Gothenburg by night 🤓🚦🏗
A perfect fan of colors showing the slow, deliberate transition from summer to autumn. A chance to slow down. I feel so lucky to have found this branch in my grandfather’s backyard. 🌿🍂🍁✨
A crisp morning at the Oregon coast.
Back to this Washington wonderland with the best window views @icelandair 🙌
Even when you’re racing daylight some shots are worth stopping for
Just got back to the states and I'm happy to report my flights were 👌 Had an awesome time exploring this country with some amazing people!
I hate being alone. Especially in the woods, at night, off trail, in cougar country. There are few people I trust to go with me. This is one of them. #optoutside #getoutside #oregonpubliclands #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored #oregoncoast #traveloregon #tillamookstateforest #fall #autumn #friends #brothers #blacktaildeer #cougar #mountainlion #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #pnwhiker
Someone was excited to see the feeder had been refilled!

Little bit of fall color out there this morning #tumwaterfalls
I opted to take a trail that the map labeled “hard to follow”. It was equal parts non-existent and elk trail. Turns out that off-trail ridge walking during the golden hour is a very memorable mountain experience. #alpinepedestrian #nomadhikes
Today’s prompt was #scorched . It was another bad year for wildfires and there were a couple hikes we had to stop and turn around due to bad air quality and hazardous conditions. This was a grove of trees that I remember eating lunch under that ended up burning to a crisp two weeks later in western Montana. I imagine that this was the kind of aftermath the fires left behind. I really wanted to capture the destruction and how destitute the landscapes become after wildfires that could have been prevented occur. We are incredibly fortunate to have access to public lands and should always be cautious when enjoying ourselves out there. @jakeparker @inktober . . . . . . . . . . #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #blackandwhite #illustration #inkillustration #drawing #sketch #art #penandink #penwork #inkdrawing #artist #artistsoninstagram #copic #pnwartist #stippling #inksketch #micron #linework #sketchbook #cascadiaexplored #hiking #fire #keepitwild #instagood #montana #forest #tree
