We got to the #olympiccoast and were greeted with an absolutely beautiful day and hundreds of unique sea stacks. #olympicnationalpark #pnwonderland #pnw #weekendadventures #getoutandplay #naturephotography #wanderlust #upperleftusa
Got to see a stormy ocean along the way to forks, washington. It started to downpour right after we got to that spot. Had to run back ti the car XD #olympiccoast #washingtonstateadventures
On our way to the Hoh Rain Forest we stopped along the coast in a couple of spots. It was surprisingly warm for this time of year, and absolutely breathtaking. The Pacific Northwest is just gorgeous!

Most days I work a reasonably pleasant 9-5 office job. And for the past five years all of my vacations and time away have been spent exploring as many parks, forests, mountains, lakes, rivers and coastlines as I could manage. While tame by the standards of Instagram and YouTube, these adventures often pushed me to my limits physically, emotionally, and creatively, and allowed me to grow as a person, improve my apocalypse survival skills, and connect with nature. Whether risking frostbite waiting for sunrise in the Blue Ridge, spending the night on the side of the road in Yosemite because of an RV explosion, or sliding down cliff faces in Olympic, it’s always interesting, usually fun, and often challenging. So after a few years of type 2 fun, this time I’m going to take it easy. Tickets are purchased and reservations are made for a beach front cabana at a tiny resort in a remote corner of Grenada’s north coast. Palm trees and hammocks and summer clothes and warm water and hot food. It’s going to be great. I might even take some photos. . . . . . . . #shishibeach #olympiccoast #olympicnationalpark #usinterior #findyourpark #travel #hikingadventures #optoutside #pnw #igtravel #instanature #nationalparkgeek #getoutside #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #washington #cascadiaexplored #exploremore #nature #wanderwashington #ocean #traveller #adventuretime #hikrlife #natgeoyourshot #instagood10k #ig_color #induropushfurther #myrrs
The better Washington
Rainforest, waterfalls, old lodges, beaches, crashing waves, twilight,sea stacks, sunsets, and tide pools... what a weekend on the #olympiccoast . #pnw #pnwonderland #shishibeach #weekendadventures #nps #naturephotography #getoutandplay #adventureawaits #wanderlust #adventurepartners
Every beach on the Olympic coast seem nearby - but the steep drop offs that result with the rain forest that hugs the coastline make it a challenging hike to access most beaches. Also, with moisture in such high concentrations, make it ideal for lush trees and plants to carpet the beaches. If you observe closely in the picture you can see several moths and insects feasting on the greens. Is this image too over cooked ? Let me know what you think. #blackandwhitephoto #monochromegarden #fern #leadinglines #overcooked #olympiccoast #olympicnarionalpark #rainforest #silverash #selectivecolor #burnanddodge #eatyourgreens #notspinach #darkshadows #hohrainforest #washingtonstate #greencarpet #rain #oceanmist

Need a moment of relaxation? Take a deep breath and imagine the sound of waves splashing into shore on this rocky Pacific Northwest beach. . Sunsets at Rialto Beach in #OlympicCoast National Marine Sanctuary are spectacular. What's your favorite sanctuary to catch the sunset from? . #EarthIsBlue #Beach #Sunset #Ocean #RialtoBeach #PNW #PacificNorthwest #OlympicPeninsula (Photo: @adam.j.baus )
Point of Arches on the Olympic Coast during the lowest tide of the year. You could walk all the way to the end and climb the stacks, but the secret caves that spend half their lives underwater were my favorite part. . . . . . #shishibeach #olympicnationalpark #olympiccoast #visitwashington #beach #ocean #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #thatpnwlife #pnwcollective #pnwlife #cascadiaexplored #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #nature #wildernessculture #awesomeearth #trailchat #hikrlife #ig_color #ig_landscape #theoutbound #instagood #instagood10k #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #myrrs #induropushfurther #oregonnw
Celebrating 35 years today with too much food, a short day at work, and a look back at one of my favorite spots, Shi Shi Beach on the Olympic Coast. A short hike led me down a cliff to a magical 2 mile stretch of sandy beach with sea stacks on both ends. I spent 3 days exploring the caves and pools around the stacks, and had uncharacteristically perfect weather. Now to plan the adventures for year #36 ! . . . . . . . . #shishibeach #olympicnationalpark #olympiccoast #oregoncoast #oregonexplored #oregonlife #olympicpark #nature #wildernessculture #awesomeearth #beautifuldestinations #earthpix #trailchat #optoutside #hiking #camping #hikrlife #ourplanetdaily #ig_color #ig_landscape #exploretocreate #instagood10k #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #seewhatsoutthere #celebratewild
Sore as hell. Legs are jello, but mission accomplished. Hiked the Cape Flattery to La Push coastline on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. So what were the highlights? Coming face to face with a sea lion and besting it in a game of chicken on a rocky cliff, seeing a bald eagle eating his catch on a driftwood stump, fording the Ozette river and not falling over, watching otters and seals feed in river mouths, conversing with several Native Americans while passing through their reservations (including an auto tour of the Makah land), the sounds of ocean waves lulling me to sleep every night, and not coming in to contact with any cougars while hiking through the inland rainforests. Sadly, many photo opportunities were missed along the way due to having to focus the majority of my hiking at night time. The diurnal inequality of the low tides (ie the low tide in the morning had a far higher sea level than the low tide in the evening) meant that many sections were only passable after dark. With a few 5-6 mile stretches of cliffs overlooking the beach, having no way out if I were to be trapped by the incoming tide, I wasn't about to take any chances. For anyone who may not have previously heard of the Olympic National Forest, I would highly suggest checking out the Peninsula at some point in your life. There are incredible snowcapped mountains, untouched rocky beaches, fern and pine covered rainforests, over 600 unblemished lakes, and hundreds of miles of trails to be explored. The largest town on the peninsula, Port Angeles, is quite vibrant with fantastic restaurants, numerous local vendors, and a suprisingly entertaining nightlife scene. Hotels, motels, and cabins can be found throughout the scattered small towns out here, for those who would prefer more modern amenities. With that, I'm off for Vancouver Island and British Columbia's capital city, Victoria, a short ferry ride from Port Angeles. #olympicpeninsula #olympiccoast #olympicnationalforest #pacificnorthwesttrail #forkswashington #neahbay #wanderer #portangeles #makahabeach #ozette #beachhiking #beachcamping #olympicrainforest #tidechartsareessential #ineedashower #victoriabc #traveler #canadabound

One hell of a way to end a trip on the Olympic Coast. #mapsnotapps
Feels good to be home
Super high tide at Ruby Beach. #mapsnotapps #climatechange

Wrap up of 2017! Very hard to choose just 10. Here’s to more adventures from skiing to hiking and to getting a tattoo! (Which to credit the artist: @dekeharms at Monolith in Bend!)

This giant green sea anemone is soaking up the sun in #OlympicCoast National Marine Sanctuary! These anemones can be found in tidepools all along your #WestCoast national marine sanctuaries – have you spotted them while exploring? . #EarthIsBlue #Tidepool #Ocean #Anemone #Invertebrate #Sun #Nature #Green (Photo: @adam.j.baus )
Shi Shi Beach and Point of The Arches hike along the Washington State Coast. #PacificNorthWest #OlympicCoast
Ruby Beach on the Olympic coast. A cold and beautiful example of the Pacific Northwest. Check the tides before going for best chances at seeing the tide pools. #kalaloch #rubybeach #pnw #olympiccoast
Murky waters and morning fog somewhere on the Olympic Coast. #mapsnotapps
Someday we’ll go back to the most enchanted week of our lives
