Girl's 👯‍♀️weekends are good for the soul. This was a little girls getaway to Ocean Shore's 🏖and back. I was also playing with my brand new camera trying to see how I was going to use it for when we moved to Germany. 🇩🇪 It makes want to get it out again. 🤳Really loved how the second photo came out. By no means am I a photographer. 📷 I just enjoy a good photo. 🌅I do need to get better at printing some of these out and making photo albums. I need to get on that before all my photos are all baby photos and I fall way behind. 👶 : : : : #girlsweekend #girlsweekendaway #girlsweekendgetaway #weekendaway #relaxing #pnw #pacificnorthwest #olympicnationalforest #olympicnationalpark #coastline #rainforest #girlsroadtrip #creepypizzaplace #wesawwildelk #olympicnationalparkbeach #KalalochBeach #rubybeach #olympiccoast #driftwood #bluesky #selfie #washingtonsand #washingtoncoast #girlsdayout

Looking for the chance to view some otterly adorable wildlife? You otter visit #OlympicCoast National Marine Sanctuary! . Wildlife watching opportunities abound in this sanctuary, both from shore and on sea. Twenty-nine species of marine mammals visit sanctuary waters, and more than a million seabirds, waterfowl, and shorebirds travel through the sanctuary during annual migrations. Learn how to visit this jewel of the Pacific Northwest at olympiccoast.noaa.gov. . #EarthIsBlue #ILoveMySanctuary #Otter #OtterlyAdorable #SeaOtter #Travel #Adventure #Fun #PNW #Ocean #Wildlife #Wild (Photo: NOAA) .

That feeling when you're standing in the places that you dreamt of to keep you going... #home #pacificnorthwonderland #rainforest #olympiccoast #wanderwashington #upperleftusa #hoh #olympicnationalpark #emeraldisle
I’ve been thinking since my last post... and now I have to say that this was my favorite hike of the week. From beginning to end, this trail amazed me. We saw about 12 bald eagles the first day of getting into the PNW wilderness. Just incredible. PS: if you look close, you can see stars in the picture with the campfire. . . . . . . . #pnw #olympicnationalpark #olympiccoast #rialtobeach #chileanmemorial #holeinthewall #goprohero6 #bigagnes
Another unforgettable astro adventure. Figuring that those tiny red and blue lights in the distance were photographers (it was 2 or 3am on a perfect Milky Way night), I tried to walk to them and ended up walking for miles down the beach under the stars. I never reached them (TIL it's quite hard to gauge the distances of lights at night!) but I had an incredible experience nonetheless both listening to the waves of the rising tide and gazing straight into the galaxy. More pictures from this weekend to come :)

Photography is a way to capture and share what the human eye can’t. #longexposure of waves along the beach is one of my favorites. #olympiccoast #nikond810 #beach #waves

The weather was just about perfect on the Washington coast this weekend. Long summer evenings, warm temps, and camping on the beach = 👍🏻 . . #wanderwashington #CascadiaExplored #PNWonderland #natgeo #pnwlife #pnwphotographer
"I am excited to have the special opportunity to share these treasures with the public through storytelling and video. It is a dream of mine to tell stories of conservation and environmental stewardship, and I am really proud to tell these stories within the National Marine Sanctuary System." – Nick Zachar, NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries videographer .

The weekend is here and the coast is calling my name. Heading to the Olympic Peninsula tomorrow!

Happy summer weekend y’all! Go get your adventure on!! The diversity of the landscape and the natural beauty in Washington State never ceases to amaze me. This stretch along the Olympic South Coast Wilderness Trail is called the Graveyard of Giants, where I saw more deer than people during a 3-day solo backpacking trip. Where will your weekend adventures take you? . . . . . . . . . . #pnwdiscovered #nationalparkgeek #pnwparadise #olympicnationalpark #olympiccoast #washingtoncoast #olympicpeninsula #explorewashington #womenempoweringwomenphotographers #beautifuldestinations #takemebackpacking #lifeofadventure #adventureenthusiasts #findbeautyandmagic #idratherbeinnature #globetrotters #celebratewild #herpnwlife #adventureisoutthere #adventureislife #takeahike #sweatydirtyhappy #radgirlscollective #dirtbagdarling #pnwlove #idhikethat #keepitwild #trailandkale #idratherbeinnature #pnwoutdoorwomen
While the world is your canvas, before the tide sweeps away its memory, you play hopscotch (I can see why they made petroglyphs - you long for something more permanent).
“This crab looks hot, so I’m giving it shade!”
It’s been 3 weeks since my daughter and I backpacked the Wildcatter trail on the rugged Washington coast. It was quite the adventure and has left her thumbing through guide books looking for our next adventure!
What a wonderful beach sesh we had last weekend!! Cheers to sunshine and blue sky rain showers out of be blue, neck deep tide pools, flailing in the surf and watching your friends catch waves, beach lounging, fire cooking, bota box drinking, hammock lounging, belly laughing friendship beachy times!!

Visit the northwest coastline and try to NOT be in awe of the people who have lived here for thousands of years. Bet there were some pretty gnarly fishermen in those crews. Rock pillars, storms, currents, living in constant fog, chasing whales...
The Olympic Coast is one of my favorite places to “wash my spirit clean”. Can hardly wait for my backpack along it with my husband. @bheventspace @bhphoto #olympiccoast #olympicnationalpark #backpacking #sunsets #usparksandnationalminuments #usinterior

Backpacks off, Will & Charlie Price enjoy beachside camping on the Olympic Coast. This was a great trip that unfortunately ended at the trailhead where my car had a smashed window, glass everywhere, squirrels and mice making residence in the car, and thousands of dollars in stolen gear...
Didn’t get out to the trails this weekend cuz I had to move, so here’s a short clip from the last time I went to the coast🌊🌅 Happy Monday! #secondbeach #olympiccoast
i wish i could stay here forever 🌊
Sometimes you just need to climb way up in a tree and lounge in a fishnet hammock and look at the waves and the sky.
If you pinch to zoom, you will see a bald eagle 🦅 casting its shadow on the surf below. It was difficult to capture on a camera how the mist, sun and savage bird rays mixed into a nature smoothie.

Ocean Conservation Tip #3 🌊: Visit marine protected areas 🤗 . Did you know that the Olympic Coast in Washington is a National Marine Sanctuary? Over 3000 square miles of this part of the ocean are protected 😊 . The coast is so unlike the Oregon & California Coast. It is rugged and it is wild. You cannot swim on the beaches because of the huge driftwood that comes in. And more likely than not you’ll be among only a few others at the beaches. It is beautiful and it is amazing to see a place when it is left untamed 😎 . Have you ever visited a marine protected area? They are usually so much more full of life & nature, and help you to see what happens when an area has extra protection and regulations 😀 . . . . . #truthfultravel #teamkaptainkenny #wildwashington #femaletravelbloggers #bossgirlbloggers #pnwonderland #wanderwashington #itsbetteroutside #washingtonexplored #olympiccoast #livewashington #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #olympicnationalpark #theNWadventure #westcoastbestcoast #findyourpark #visittheusa #optoutside #rubybeach
The moody skies of Olympic National Park’s Shi Shi Beach help make this awesome stretch of coast even more gorgeous, enticing exploration for days at a time.

The Olympic Coast is ridiculously beautiful, providing endless scenes of wanderlust along the 73 miles of uninterrupted awesomeness. Whether you only hike a mile or spend a week backpacking along the Pacific, the salty air, sea-stacks, driftwood and tide pools will leave you wishing for more moments along the timeless stretches of sand. #outdoorsociety #rialtobeach #olympicnationalpark #olympics #olympiccoast #wildernesscoast #naturephotography #nationalpark #natureisamazing #nationalparkexpert #findyourpark #optoutside #gooutside #driftwood #washingtonstate #saywa #pacificocean #pnwonderland #pnwlife #meditationdestination
(swipe to see the full image) I love shooting on the Northwest coast. It's rugged, beautiful and remote. When I first began trying to shoot there, I would wait for a nice sunny day and try and catch sunset. I'd drive all the way out to the coast from Seattle, which is about 3.5 hours with the ferry ride, and hit a wall of fog right on the coast. Skunked. No sunset. So I reached out to someone whose weather opinion I respected, meteorologist Larry Schick. Amazingly he was responsive and super helpful. He told me to look for offshore flow. That's when the wind is blowing off land and out towards sea, blowing the fog away from the coast. Even more amazing he emailed me a few days later to let me know that offshore winds were setting up. Now I know. On the day I shot this panorama, there was. Weak offshore winds, keeping just the right amount of fog around as the sun was setting. Thanks Larry! #sunset #panorama #olympiccoast #fog
While the mountains bring me joy, the forests nourish my soul and the deserts inspire wanderlust, the Wild Olympic Coast has my heart. Each wave that pounds against the rugged shore strengthens me, reconnecting me to this pristine landscape. #outdoorsociety #olympicnationalpark #olympiccoast #secondbeach #olympicpeninsula #lapush #itrealgood #seastacks #pacificocean #washingtonstate #saywa #naturephotography #wilderness #gooutside #optoutside #nationalpark #nationalparkexpert #meditationdestination
Every rough part of backpacking with a baby was so worth it for these views, smiling faces, and uninterrupted time together.
We hope you're having a pawsitivly wonderful #WorldOtterDay ! Sea otters in #OlympicCoast National Marine Sanctuary are a fabulous conservation success story. . Because they used to be hunted for their fur, sea otters were once extinct from the coast of Washington state. In 1969 and 1970, 59 otters were relocated to Washington from Alaska. Thanks to stewardship and habitat conservation, that population has grown immensely – now more than 1800 sea otters live in Washington. That's otterly amazing population growth! . #EarthIsBlue #Otter #SeaOtter #PNW #Washington #Ocean #Nature #EndangeredSpecies (Photo: NOAA) .

Back to the #olympiccoast for Memorial Day. The weather keeps getting sunnier and the bocce game gets stronger.

Mushroom Rock, a curious-looking thing, is a favorite dive site near the NW tip of Washington State. @seattleaquarium modeled their “Window on Washington Waters” exhibit after the underwater features here. #dive #scuba #scubadiving #mushroomrock #capeflattery #neahbay #olympicpeninsula #olympiccoast #upperleftusa #upperleftisbest #salishsea #straitsofjuandefuca #surfaceinterval #naturephotography #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #geologyrocks #explorewashington #explorewashingtonstate #divesites
