Airport thoughts Airports are such interesting places everyone is transient some are coming and some are going, but no one is staying We cram together in these small spaces, waiting to leave We'll probably never meet again but in this moment we're all the same I'm sitting here waiting for my plane to take me away surrounded by people doing the same we're all connected, but strangers to one another there's an older women..across from me, 3 seats over. her grey sweats and vibrant purple hoodie no contest for her fading violet hair. she sits...and waits. I wonder what her story could be.. is she starting an adventure, will she be walking through ancient forgotten tombs tomorrow? is she going home running away from a crumbling marriage.. I will never know, but in this moment we are connected..we wait. a young man slouches 2 aisles away from me, he is wearing the most colorful sweater, a jumble of conflicting colors that draws the eye he is hunched over his phone, perhaps like me writing? or more likely scrolling mindlessly through social media? As I sit here he looks up occasionally, just watching those around him. not wary nor interested, just looking Next to me, a smal child in a bright pink shirt that declares she's a princess, asks her mother if she can have another bite of chocolate ...and cries when she receives a firm "no" in reply this small devastated child, will she grow up to be a doctor? will she save lives or will she grow up to be a teacher, filling the future generations with knowledge or maybe a pilot, taking those who wait to their destinations these people so close, but all of them mysteries I sit here and I wait..and I write I wonder what they think of me Just some Airport thoughts.

Snuggling to stay warm.
I timed my day around getting to Reflection Lake to take a picture of Mount Rainier as the sun was setting. As it turned out the sky was mostly clear, so no clouds to bounce the warm light into the sky, there was a stiff wind making ripples across the lake and so there was no reflection to be seen. I sat, and I waited, and I waited for conditions to improve but the wind did not calm and the light faded. So I decided I'd come back at night, I knew it was a full moon that night so I hoped the light of the moon would be enough to light up the mountain if the sky was clear. Not only was the sky clear but the lake was calm and smooth as glass. The night sky was a beauty so few get to experience. What is the life lesson in this? Sometimes when you think things aren't turning out as you had hoped, it means something better than you had planned is in store for you... . . . #livewashington #igers_seattle #nikon #phototag_it #cascadiaexplored #pnwonderland #lazyshutters #amazing_longexpo #main_vision #ourplanetdaily #pnwcollective #seattlepulse #viewbugfeature #agameoftones #way2ill #shoot2kill #moodygrams #illgrammers #artofvisuals #fatalframes #justgoshoot #pnw #createcommune #superhubs #destinationpnw #exploretocreate #instagood #beautifuldestinations #wildernessculture #beautifuldestinations
Long weekend
Most Important Points of Samuel, Part 3: Despite Evil and Sin, God Uses Them in His Plan – Evil Cannot Thwart God’s Plan Theme. There are so many evils and sins shown in this book, but at the same time, God’s hand can be seen in the midst of it. Hannah’s barrenness leads to Samuel being committed to the temple. The Ark of the Covenant is stolen but leads to the nation-wide repentance of Israel. The bad advice that Absalom followed leads to his own demise. The immoral relationship with Bathsheba will eventually lead to a noted son, Solomon, being born. These are just to name a few. (Stay tuned, additional thoughts on this concept coming soon) . . . . . #fallvibes #biblestudy #moodyports #fallleaves #blessed #quietinthewild #capturethemoment #love #photooftheday #tagforlikes   #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwlife #pnwliving   #upperleftusa #wanderlust #nature #pnwsky #pnwcollective #washington #WA #WanderWashington #explorewa #outdoorlife #backpacking__adventures #thegreatoutdoors #pnwexploring #instagood   #thatpnwlife
D A Y 330 / 365 // Nature has a way of lowering your blood pressure, and welcoming you with wide open arms. I used to walk these hills with this boy when I was pregnant, and now I can climb them without getting winded. 😂 . Thankful for a few hours to roam kid free with the pup today in one of our favorite spots. It was just the tonic I needed. ❤️🌲 . . . . #autumnmariephotography #createvisuals #createexplore #createexploretakeover #vscocollective #liveauthentic #herpnwlife #thatsdarling #pnwlove #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #pnwexplorations #letsgosomewhere #livefolk #washingtonstate #ventureanywhere #pnwp #neverstopexploring #hippomag #pnwonderland #viewpnw #nrthwst #stayandwander #keepitwild #milspouse #minimalist #roamtheplanet #wethecreators #westernnature #steilacoompark
First “real” hike I ever went on growing up was Beacon Rock. It’s a very short trail but man will it challenge you! "... a remarkable high detached rock Stands in a bottom on the Stard Side near the lower point of this Island on the Stard. Side about 800 feet high and 400 paces around, we call the Beaten rock. ..." - Captain Clark, October 31, 1805.

This semester is done... It was amazing and it was tough. A lot of friends didn’t come back but I also made a lot of new ones. I learned a ton and wrote over 300 pages of assignments. Had some late night and some early mornings too. And I got to have some unreal times with friends. . . All in all, it was unreal and I’m thankful for every second. Also here are some pics from the banquet with some of my best friends.

@AbiquaFalls - This is a beautiful area. But there is an easy way and a crazy way. This location is on private property so there are no trail markings letting you know which way to travel. My friend and I went down a trail which matched some of the descriptions we read below, but little did we know there are a few trails down which match the descriptions below. The trail we took was a death defying Triple Diamond decent for experts only. #abiquafalls #waterfall #pnw #pnwcollective #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthbest #pnw_discovered #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #oregonnw #oregon #hikeoregon #exploregon #cascadiaexplored #welivetoexplore #earth_shotz #oregon #earthoutdoors #roamtheearth #americathebeautiful #exploreusa #welivetoexplore #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #getoutside #bestoforegon #pnw_waterfalls #landscapelovers

Trying out the new Starbucks Reserved Bar on Pender that opened on Tuesday. It’s the largest Starbucks in Canada. This is the Cheney brew method.

Ever notice how much fresher the air is in the forest? It rejuvenates the mind and body. Ignites something in the soul with its siren song. You can barely pull yourself away. It calls for us all week long....nature is amazing. . . 🌲🌲🌲👌 . . . #yyj #victoriabuzz #victoria #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #livelifeoutside #pnwonderland #exploreoutdoors #vancouverisland #islandlife #vanisle #explorevancouverisland #hikebc #hike #staywild #hiking #theadventurehandbook #mecnation #seekthetrails #westcoast #explorecanada #pnwcollective #pnw #rei1440project #adventure #nomad #thatpnwlife #borntoroam #travel #keepitwild
A post or two ago, I had a little "Guess where this is?" game with you all! Though no one on IG guessed it, I went ahead and revealed that the image was a close up of Mt. Shasta! Here's the entire image. Enjoy! #windswept #frigid #rugged #where #guesswhere #cascades #pnwwonderland #nwadventure #winter #winterscapes #pnwlove #pnwcollective #pnw #mtshasta #shasta #cloudscape
As I drove home tonight, about an hour earlier than normal, I gasped as I caught the sunset light hitting the mountains. I rushed to retrieve my camera, and rushed to the park, but alas, the light was gone, left with grey hills, late fall winds, and fading sunset clouds to the southwest. Maybe another day, another sunset. This particular photo was sunset in the mountains from a backpacking trip in August. . . #washingtonexplored #mountainlover #mountainview #adventureon #Washington #pnwwonderland #pnwphotography #pnwcollective #outdooradventures #adventurevisuals #exploremoreoutdoors #adventurethatislife #discoverearth #earthfocus #discoverwashington #northwestcreatives #outdoorproject #earthoutdoors #mountainstones #mountainphotography #takemoreadventures #naturesbeauty #mountainstones #outdoortones #earthexperience #sunset_vision #mountainsunset #pnwcrew #sunset_stream #washingtontrails

Moments never forgotten, I think I’ll hang you on my wall. I’ve been to this place so many times but I’ve never seen it blow up like this 🔥 #whpjoyful @instagram . . . Do you think buying prints are still cool?
It's only Tuesday and I'm already looking forward to the weekend lol! But on another note, how gorgeous are these colors?! I told you guys I still had plenty of fall pictures to share! Hard to believe the first official day of winter is only 10 days away! Where does the time go?! I seriously can't believe it is about to be 2019. The years seem to fly by even faster as I get older. Looking forward to next year though. Getting married and our Thailand & Sri Lanka trip are just a couple of the things to be excited about! . . . . . . . . . . . . #fall #autumn #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #sheeplake #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #colorful #beautifuldestinations #lake #acolorstory #herpnwlife #northwestisbest
I love when trails are interesting and have a bunch of different features to it. It keeps you guessing and even more excited for the final outcome. Also helps keep me pushing when I want to stop. Are you enjoying the outdoors this weekend? I'm staying in but very excited for a girls night and to check out a new restaurant/lounge in Tacoma today! I don't get out enough anymore lol! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #forest #trees #alpinelakeswilderness #washington #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #pnwlife #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #rocks #pnwcollective #wildernessculture #blogger #herpnwlife #northwestisbest
Cheers to the weekend!! 🥂🍻 I was reminiscing about our last couple cabin trips last night & thinking about how I would love to book one this winter deep in the woods in the snow with a hot tub of course ;) lol. Relaxation sounds so good. These last few weekends of the year are chockful of holiday social events for me & I'm unsure when I'll be able to get out there again since I can only hike on weekends but hoping to at least make the last 2 weekends of December full of outdoor fun. It's okay though, the holidays are all about love, family, friends, celebration, & joy. I'm excited to actually have a full calendar of social fun for once lol! It's also nice to get a break sometimes. I love the outdoors & being in nature but waking up super early almost every weekend & spending half that time in a car just to drive to the hike for at least 3 to sometimes 8 hours roundtrip can be draining after a long week & doing it constantly lol. Nature & content can wait sometimes lol especially when you have other pressing & important things to do! I will also be taking the time to write up some future blog posts! What are you up to this weekend? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #flashbackfriday #cheers #happyfriday #tgif #cabin #pnw #washington #cozy #rustic #summer #pnwlife #pnwonderland #herpnwlife #leavenworth #upperleftusa #northwestisbest #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #roamtheplanet #relaxation #peaceful #forest #outdoors #nature #wanderlust #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #nikon #photography #pnwcollective
