We spent Saturday wandering our state, chasing sunshine and dreaming of becoming nomads. #latergram #washington #wander #wanderwashington #pnw #upperleftusa #northwestisbest #sunshine
One of the most stunning sunsets I'd ever seen, and where do you think this was? On a white sand Mexican beach? On an island hidden in the Caribbean? On a secret Costa Rican cove? Nope. This was on America's west coast! Sometimes people forget that beauty is everywhere, in every country, and you don't have to travel across the world to find it! Too be fair, this was still 10 hours away from our home in Canada, but we share this coastline, and I've seen some sunsets sure to rival this one back home too! You never know what you'll find while exploring your own backyard. #pacificnorthwest #northwestisbest #traveloregon #bestoforegon #sunsets #beach #beautyiseverywhere #sunsetsniper #scenicsunset #instasunsets #travelblog #timeboundtraveller #blogmybackNM #travelwriter #traveller #travelblogger #traveldiaries #northwestcreatives #travelphoto #travelpics #isea_sunsets #traveltheworld #traveladdict #wanderer #bestofnorthwest
“Come on down from that cloud and cast your fears aside. You're all here and there and there's nothing inside. There was a voice that called me. There was a light that burned me. I go around and feel how it fades. I walk around and I see what's fading. Walk around and you'll see how it fades.” Track. Death in Midsummer Artist. Deerhunter @deerhuntermusic Album.

Hakuna Matata!
sometimes you just gotta walk away
We like fall, sunsets and long walks without leashes😁🐾
I sat down to eat lunch today and thought to myself, “Damn, life is just the best.” Next to these incredible women and in the thick of this landscape I was able to let my magic shine unhindered and unchained. #optoutside #feministhikes
Basic views from a windy day on old HWY 30. My newborn was a champ in his baby carrier under my jacket. ••• Multnomah Falls, Or.
What if who I hoped to be was always me?
The perfect dress for the perfect day
Just out fer’ a rip are ya bud?
I just finished my last trip before the kiddos are born — next week the third trimester begins 😱😱😱 Portland is putting on such a spectacular show this fall. All I want to do is settle in and nest and drink hot cocoa and think about how in 3 months I’m going to snuggle my babies (and add whiskey to my cocoa #forrealtho ) . . . . . . . #traveloregon   #oregonexplored  #youroregon #bestoforegon  #oregonnw #cascadiaexplored  #exploregon #thenwadventure  #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered  #thatpnwlife #northwestisbest  #upperleftusa #northwestcreatives  #pnwcollective #bestofnorthwest  #pacificnorthwest #pnwisbeautiful  #visitpnw  #staypnw #pnwlife  #pnwisbest  #exploreoregon
Scratch and sniff for mountain evergreen. 🌲 . Paused while driving across a bridge in Mt Rainier National Park to capture this moment. Little flakes starting to fall, the trees and fog creating dreamy layers. It’s like a northwest scented candle in a snapshot. 🤗☕️🗻❄️🌲 What’s your favorite candle scent for the season?! #pnwlife #awakethesoul
Don’t bother holding on to That thing that does not want you. -you cannot make it stay- rupi kaur. . I hope everything had a good weekend.💞 I have always been a fan of poetry and creative writing, who are some of your favorite poets or writers?
Newberry National Volcanic Monument. From inside the walls of the giant caldera. Paulina Peak's shadow covering Big Obsidian Flow. Paulina Lake to the left and East Lake to the right. Central pumice cone between the lakes. Not pictured: Lava Cast Forest, Lava River Cave, Lava Butte, Paulina Falls. How to fit it all in one video?

The second this cold, dry weather hits, I just want snow. C’mon Washington... just a light dusting. #shootmoments

Wow, those gusts are cold! Keep an eye out for a warm cider we’re making with Cold Tree Old Tom Gin, lemon verbena, and a float of Fernet Vallet. #gin #northwestisbest #cider #hottoddy #cocktails #pdxfood #eaterpdx
Mayne Island, BC. Canada by @northwestmoon . Mayne Island is a small island off the southwest coast of British Columbia and part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, which is comprised of over 15 islands! There are several ways to access the Island, a ferry ( around an hour from either Swartz Bay or Tsawwassen) or a float plane ( which takes about a 20 minutes from Victoria Inner Harbour).⠀ ⠀ ⠀ There are plenty of things to do and see once there. Check out the views at Bennett Bay, explore the Georgina Point Heritage Park and Lighthouse, or check out many of the beautiful farms in the island! ⠀ ⠀ Have you explored any of the Gulf Islands with kids? Let us know what are your favorite things to do there!⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Do you have an awesome Pacific Northwest kid-friendly outdoor adventure you want us to feature? DM or email us ( better yet tag us!) and don't forget to tag #pnwkids to be featured! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pnwkids #pnwkids_BC #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #getoutside #pnwdiscovered #thatpnwlife #northwestcreatives #modernoutdoors #pnwcollective #pnwexplorations #northwestisbest #PNWparadise #travelcanada #explorebc #tourismbc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #greatwhitenorth #ilovebc #bcisbeautiful #familytraveltribe #vanisle #dailyviewbc #paradisecanada #enjoycanada #thecanadiancollective #canadianviews #pocket_canada #ig_great_shots_canada ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
One of the most underrated parts of fall is the magic combo of the chill air and warm light that makes everyone and everything look like magic 😍
Mirror mirror. 🌲🍂
Done (this view concludes my run)! Sometimes when I run, I dread living on top of a hill, but with a view like this (and much more of the valley and the Columbia River Gorge below), it’s worth all the extra efforts. What a beautiful morning! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “The meaning of life is to find your gift.

This city is stunning at all hours 🌃🌊
Foggy California coast
He’s such a model 😫😍 I wish I could be as photogenic as him.
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. It was an amazing day that could have only been better by actually making it to that swing. #itwassofar #howdiditgetthere #birthdayfun #oregon #ecolastatepark #northwestisbest #beachdays
Captured the @spaceneedle showing love to all the Veterans out there through the fountain on the waterfront
This trolley is free and runs throughout downtown and uptown Dallas and it was probably the coolest thing to ride being a tourist out there.
These two were so much fun to shoot with. I love getting the opportunity to catch these moments!

Hope your Monday was as good as Ginnie’s was! Yay for long walks and November sunshine ☀️
Autumn leaves
I went to the beach yesterday so I could think and hear the water washing up against the shore. Does anyone else find the sound of water peaceful ? . . . . #itsthelittlethings #views #visualsoflife #northwestisbest #sunset #canada #beautifulbc #justgoshoot #nothingisordinary #perspective #thoughts #thatpnwlife #autumn #peoplescreatives #neverstopexploring #gooutside #themountainiscalling #lake
happy first day of the week! how’s your monday going? i’m currently battling a cold 🤧 and would appreciate some good vibes thrown my way 🙏🏼
Nothing compares to Yosemite in winter 💫
I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.
I got to go to my second Seahawks game last weekend. I thought it’d be fun to look at the picture from my first game too. 5 years, 2 kids, 1 super bowl, and a lot of lost players. But still with this guy.#gohawks
Best sunset I've seen in a while.
Ice cream in da mowninggg~~ tak masalah~~ hareudang wae cuy didieu~~ . . . Eskrimnya vegan dan enak abiz, auk dah tetep bikin gendut ato kagak. 5menit sekejap ilang di gereges apinman.
It’s time to pull out our snowshoes! Winter is JB’s favorite hiking season so I’m so excited that he will be tagging along now!
It's always the best when you get a trail all to yourself, especially when you know it's a popular one. Starting bright & early is always my preferred choice (although sunset is nice too). I loved the glowing morning spring light trickling through the tall dark trees as we descended back down to the trailhead. As the winter approaches and trails start to get limited I may try out the more popular trails I've been avoiding because I think the weather and snow will keep the crowds at bay. Perfect time to check out the hype. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #trees #beautiful #pnwcollective #hike #hiking #outdoors #nature #light #herpnwlife #upperleftusa #oysterdome #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #optoutside #getoutside #explore #adventure #washingtontrails #northwestisbest #blogger #nikon #photography #peaceful
How can you not smile when you know it's Friday and a 3 day weekend?! Hooray!! Here is a flashback to a wet and cloudy hike because there is going to be a lot of that this season lol. Also side note, but I love bridges, I take pictures on every single one I see when I'm on a hike or travelling lol! I guess I just like that idea of connection and bridging the gap between new destinations. Anyways, does anyone have any fun weekend getaway plans? Hope everyone has a great weekend! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #happyfriday #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #green #trees #bridge #beautiful #pnwcollective #hike #hiking #outdoors #nature #smile #happy #goodvibes #squats #herpnwlife #upperleftusa #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #optoutside #getoutside #explore #adventure #washingtontrails #northwestisbest #blogger
Life's adventures are better together ❤ I wouldn't want to experience life and its many beautiful places and moments with anyone else but you! I can climb any hurdle with you by my side and I know we may not be exactly where we want to be yet in terms of career goals, house goals, life goals, etc. but the beauty is we have the rest of our lives to figure out everything and I'm happy to know I'll have the best support system I could ever ask for. Looking back on how far we've come in every aspect of our life and how much we've grown personally and in our relationship, I'm already very happy with how things are turning out. So much progress that we should be proud of! I can't wait to see what life has in store for us. Random sappy post I know lol, no special occasions today just feeling sentimental and appreciative of this man and to be alive and able to have the opportunities that I do. . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfriend #fiance #soulmate #love #washington #mountains #trees #dirtyharrysbalcony #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #beautiful #pnwcollective #hike #hiking #outdoors #nature #view #upperleftusa #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #optoutside #getoutside #nikon #landscape #explore #adventure #washingtontrails #northwestisbest
Social media can be such a downer sometimes. More often than not I find myself wanting to delete everything & never look back. I'm always comparing myself to other people & their lives when I know better. Yes there are plenty of beautiful & awesome people out there living amazing lives but social media is usually just a highlight reel (including my own feed) and you never know what's going on behind the scenes in someone's life & mind. It's inevitable for me though, I'm always putting myself down & comparing myself to others, physically, emotionally, mentally. Always wishing my life was "better" when I should just focus on myself & all the good things in my life that I'm constantly taking for granted, as well as always striving to better myself. The only person you're in competition with is yourself. It doesn't matter what other people are doing. If you aren't happy with something, do what you can to make the changes necessary & most of all take time to focus on the positives vs the negatives. The future is so uncertain & you can choose to look at that with a positive outlook (opportunities are endless) or a negative one (what if I fail, what if I don't reach this, I should've done this in the past & now I'm never going to be this, etc.). We're all on our own timeline with our own journeys, dreams, lifestyles, relationships, & goals. There is no RIGHT way. Definitely have been needing this reminder to myself lately so thought I'd share if anyone else is struggling. . . . . . . . . . . . Nobody even reads my captions lol #mtrainier #degepeak #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #view #mountains #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #herpnwlife #northwestisbest
