I often get so concentrated on taking my next step I sometimes forget to stop and look around to appreciate the now
Banff is definitely the most beautiful place I have been in recent memory and moraine lake was the crown jewel of it. After months of waiting, I finally got the chance to explore and photograph this location, but it didn’t come easy. I arrived on location after just 3 hours of broken sleep and was greeted with freezing temperatures and 30mph/48km winds. I set up my camera and waited for the light to get good as I hid behind a rock from the winds that were piercing through my 4 layers of clothes. After about an hour of withstanding the harsh elements the light finally got good for a small window of time giving me the image you see above.

Didn’t think @boring.dave could survive a night in the wilderness without video games...so we brought the iPad. So grateful to have a partner willing to step outside his comfort zone to explore with me. Looking forward to many more backpacking adventures with my favorite person. 👫🌲🗻
Some places are simply magical and magnificent ✨ . Mount Rainier was shrouded in thick clouds that were going nowhere so we hiked down to the lake below to enjoy a cool dip in its pristine water. Twenty minutes later we turned around and the clouds had vanished from the mountain. It was so amazing that we hurried back up Tolmie Peak to snap this shot📷🙌🏼💫 . I’ll have a new post tomorrow on TotalSoulfulJourney.com _________________ #mtrainiernationalpark #mtrainier #usinterior #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #eunicelake #tolmiepeak #pnw #mountains #thatpnwlife #cascadiaexplored #cascadia #ringoffire #mtrainierwatch #washingtonexplored #optoutside #pnwtameless #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #magichappens #seattlelife #hikingadventures #washingtonhikersandclimbers #totalsoulfuljourney

Last night I got to experience bioluminescence in the water at Teddy Bear Cove...so cool. While waiting for it to get dark enough out, I snapped this picture of someone enjoying the view of the moon and Venus. ☺️🌙
Awesome view to have fresh bread and cheese with a crazy sunset to finish
Picture-prefect Pacific Northwest.
The view northeast of the gnarly Stegosaurus like spine of Diamond Peak. From left to right, some of the landmarks visible are Waldo Lake, the Sisters, Broken Top, Mt Bachelor, Willamette Pass ski area, and Odell Lake. If you zoom in just behind Willamette pass slightly to the left, I think there's a slight glimpse of what I think might be Crane Prairie Reservoir. . . . . . . . . . . . . #hikingculture #mountains #theoutbound #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #optoutside #rei1440project #cascaderange #roamtheplanet #wildernessculture #diamondpeakwilderness #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #earthoutdoors #natgeo #earthpix #global_hotshotz #nikon #photography #beautifuldestinations #volcano #willamettepass #oakridge #climbmountains
There comes a time where we have to think about our choices our path. Some wish to change and some do change. Change is inevitable, it happens everyday with the choices we make and the paths we take. . . . . . . #AGameofTones #ArtofVisuals #BeautifulDestinations #BestofOregon #CreateCommune #FatalFrames #GramSlayers #HubbardStrong #MoodyGrams #TheLensBible #UnToldVisuals #BestOfTheDay #CascadiaExplored #IG_Color #IG_Masterpiece #IgersMood #IGMasters #InstaGood #LegnedsOfTones #PhotoOfTheDay #PlayOfTones #craterlakenationalpark #WorldVisuals #ptsdawareness #ptsd
One of my favourite features along the entire Oregon coast. Hard to ever give this place scale. With waves crashing around you from multiple directions and wind usually hitting you like a ton of bricks. It’s hard not to feel the energy of this place ! . . . #allaboutadventures #wildernessculture #natureisbeautiful #cascadiaexplored #thenwadventure #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #explore #oregon #oregonlife #oregoncoast #upperleftusa #sunrise #capekiwanda #pacificnorthwest #pacificcity #pnw #pnwlove #pnwlife #longexposure #longexposure_shots #rei1440project #optoutside #getoutside #roamtheplanet #canonusa #campingadventures #hikevibes #hikingadventures #visitoregon
If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up a little too much space. ——— #muzammilsfootprints ——— 📸 by @arham_ahmad
One of the coolest parts of this photo, and for those viewing this on Instagram may not be able to see all the detail, is that you can see up to six mountains in this photo, Mt. Bachelor, Three Sisters, Mt. Washington, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood and even Mt. St Helens! I didn’t even notice seeing St Helens until I got home and looked it this photo more clearly. Sadly, as much as i really like this photo, it’s a bittersweet photo. Long story short, I didn’t set my tripod up properly, and as I was opening my bag to put my camera way, my tripod fell over and my Nikon 24-70 took all the damage and is no longer usable… So now I am one lens short, and I probably won’t be replacing my 24-70mm any time soon. So, I’m probably going to have to rent one when I go on my trip to Arizona and Utah later this summer. All this happened on a super spontaneous trip to Bend. When my buddy @dileeprevan asked me on a Friday if I wanted to go down to Bend for the weekend and shoot. I think this ended up being the lone shot that I liked from the weekend. Not so much because I was down a lens, but more because the weather just didn’t cooperate (it happens). ___ Camera: @NikonUSA D810

Been resting peacefully in Ashland, making new friends, playing bluegrass on the mandolin. Barbecues, bike rides, and deep conversations in the park. Great stuff. In a couple days I'm taking a break from the bike—but the trip continues. Headed first to Santa Barbara to hang out with Grandma Sheila. Then to Seattle: playing a bunch of gigs, replenishing the coffers. Most exciting of all? A whole month in Sitka with my sweetie @erin_slomskipritz. A few more Seattle shows on the way back, and I'll be on the bike again in September. Gotta say, I'm digging this nomad thing. Wanna come see me play? jonasmyers.com/calendar What do y'all think of my morbid new Instagram theme? #ashlandoregon #exploregon #cascadiaexplored #bicyclenomad #2018nomad #wanderingmusician #westcoastwanderer #humanyoyo #cemeterylyfe #hopefullywaitingtheresurrection

Forever wishing I was back amidst stormy weather.
There's nothing more amazing than a night sky full of stars!
Standing atop Goat Mountain, Mt. Baker seemingly at my fingertips, the snows disappearing by the minute...I’m getting married this weekend. Olympic National Park next week, and another trip to the Enchantments in September. This is gonna be a great first summer in the PNW. • • • • • • • • • • • #mtbaker #mountbaker #cascades #cascadiaexplored #washington #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #bellingham #bellinghamwa #pnwsummer #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pacificnorthwest #hikingadventures #upperleftusa #greettheoutdoors #rei1440project #optoutside #choosemountains #themoderndayexplorer #theoutbound #seeyououtthere #adventureisoutthere #alifealive #peoplewhoadventure #washingtontrails #livelifeoutside #bpmag

Love the high desert in Oregon. Heading back tomorrow to explore new parts of my lovely state ☺️
It’s a good thing I don’t get vertigo while hiking . . . snapped this while walking along a rock face by one of the lower lakes this morning. The water was so still it looked like a mirror image — sort of mesmerizing. 🌲🏔😲🍭
Every circumstance in your life is a reflection of a decision you have made 💭 🤔 moving into a new week try to be mindful of the choices you make and how they impact the state of your life. If you’re trying to bring about a change in your life, get ready to make new and different choices. Have a great week! . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #mountains #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #adobestudents_wild #washingtonhikersandclimbers #pnwphotographer
