Hiking up and over this waterfall was quite the bitch. P.S. Who else thinks Alex needs orange rain pants?
I just wanna explore the world with you. . . . . . . . . . . #explorewashington #upperleftusa #overlanding #mountain #relationshipgoals #optoutside #bestfriend #mcm

| Downfall | I’ve really been digging mobile photography a lot lately since I can’t pack my DSLR with me at work. More mobile/GoPro footage coming soon! I hope everyone is enjoying the first week of fall! 🍂 #pnw #explorewashington #evergreen #gloomy #autumn #fall #leaves #rain #windy #moody #spectrum #street #upperleftusa #folkphotography #getoutside #mobile #iphone
Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington. 📷 by: @lynseystraderphotography ↟ This remote beach is an explorer's paradise. It's quiet, peaceful and has so much natural beauty to indulge in. About 3 hours outside of Seattle, this beach deserves at least a couple days of exploring. There are many options for those planning on staying the night or longer; B&B's, campgrounds, or other various places to stay. While exploring the beach, you and your little ones will discover all sorts of adventurous things. This beach is full of beautifully weathered driftwood piled up on the sand. They are great to climb and sit on while enjoying the views. Unique rock formations called sea stacks are scattered throughout the shoreline that make little islands for birds and sometimes seals to rest on. At the base of these are colourful tidepools where you will discover all sorts of interesting creatures such as starfish, crabs, barnacles, sea anemones and more. When the tide is out you can walk and explore the beach further out. The beach is set on a backdrop of lush forestry. Be sure to bring a camera to capture it's unique and diverse atmosphere. If there's only time for a quick stop, this beach is still well worth the visit! ↟ Thank you so much @lynseystraderphotography for sharing this beautiful photo with us. Ruby Beach seems like such a beautiful place to visit! . . ↠ Follow and tag us at #braveandfreeadventures to be featured.

So cool to see our 🏔 summit objective materialize out of the clouds and looking at the cliff face thinking how are we going to get up that from here! Taking the trail up to the lookout from the other side would have been so pedestrian!😎 🧗‍♂️ #everettmountaineers
I love my job but can it be the weekend again so I can go back to the mountains? 💕I had such a great time shooting an engagement session yesterday at Mount Rainier. If you want to see the sneak peak go follow my photography handle @wilderwoman_media #pnwvibes #rainier #explorewashington #trailvibes

Catching some fall colors on Mt. St. Helens in the #SpaceTractor .
seems we’ve gotten back to homeostasis; light rain, cozy sweaters and beanies all day erryday - also was very surprised to find that this alpine lake had a sandy beach! . . . . #pnwonderland #herpnwlife #pnwvisuals #wildernessbabes #explorewashington #seattlefall #advancedselfie #pursuitofportraits #sonyportraits
Morning view of #mthood from #coldspringscampground on #mtadams . It was a frosty night at around 5500ft, the highest point to drive to for climbers ascending the south face of Mt Adams to the 12,276ft summit. • #mtadamswilderness #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #explorewashington #pnwonderland
The Davidson Building, completed in January 1890 at the northeast corner of Fourth and Pearl Streets, became a well-known Ellensburg landmark with its recognizable tower. ❤️ . . . . . . . #victorian #italinate #architecturelovers #tower #landmark #historical #oldbuildings #smalltownusa #smalltownlife #smalltownamerica #victorianstyle #pnw #pnwonderland #explorewashington #daytrip #roadtrippin #wanderlust #glt #findyouradventure #wildwest #wildwildwest #americana #thewestisthebest #travelgram #travelcaptures #travelholic #travelbug
This is the only golden sunset we had all weekend at this beautiful place. The next day fog rolled in early and blotted out the sunset or any sign of the sun for that matter. This made me realize more than ever to always chase your dreams and live every day to the fullest because you never know when things can disappear. . . . #wearexplorers #Awakethesoul #adventurenthusiasts #landscape_captures

Sometimes when the alarm goes off in the morning, it is really hard to remember the real reasons you get out of bed every day. Those first moments of consciousness may be filled with confusion, dread, anxiety, stress, or long lists of things you have to accomplish. Sometimes it can take a bit to remind yourself why you keep getting up. This photo was taken after a 3am wake-up call. Those never feel good, no matter how excited you are for the climb. But when you find yourself part way up the mountain, and you turn around and see something like this, it seems ridiculous to think that a few hours prior you were debating whether or not it would be worth it. Same goes for every morning when my alarm goes off. When my day starts at 4:15am, it never feels like it is going to be worth it. And then I find myself going through the day completely blown away by how absolutely saturated my life is in things that bring me joy, with people that inspire me, and with stories that are just so beautiful. Even the really difficult moments are simultaneously beautiful. Just the same as the most difficult moments of a climb can be painful but equally beautiful, when we remember to pay attention, we can see the beauty of each individual moment, regardless of our circumstances.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #pacificnorthwest #pacificnw #herpnwlife #hiketoheal #wildernesstherapy #explorewashington #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #alpinebabes #pnwhikes #pnwwonderland #pnwoutdoorwomen #mountainvibes #mountainsarecalling #washingtonstate #upperleft #pnwbabes #nwisbest #livetoexplore #sheadventures #washingtonhikersandclimbers #hikerlife #hikingtoheal #washingtonhikersandclimbers #adventureculture #pnwexplorations #outdoorwomen

Just a man's best friend 💚 One of my many favorite shots from this weekend's island adventure. #codybear #giantjack #whidbeyisland 🌿🍀
Three years ago, everything changed. I ached for a place that I could live in, not a place that I just existed in. I dreamed of mountains, of adventures, of the great perhaps. My soul longed to be somewhere that didn’t leave me lifeless, that didn’t hold back my ambitions. Being stuck existing somewhere that made me miserable, it’s as if nothing else could thrive. Three years ago, I left Michigan. And I left everything that destroyed me. I look at these mountains and can’t believe it took so long to get out here. Three years, and so so many more to come.
Found my happy place and I got to photograph a wedding in it. (First photo taken by the lovely @brittneyscharine )
The rain messed up our backpacking plans but we ended up finding an awesome campsite by the river....and we did not get eaten by bears.
This song of the waters is audible to every ear, but there is other music in these hills, by no means audible to all. To hear even a few notes of it you must first live here for a long time, and you must know the speech of hills and rivers. Then on a still night, when the campfire is low and the Pleiades have climbed over rimrocks, sit quietly and listen for a wolf to howl and think hard of everything you have seen and tried to understand. Then you may hear it – a vast pulsing harmony – its score inscribed on a thousand hills, its notes the lives and deaths of plants and animals, its rhythms spanning the seconds and the centuries.
