The night show
“The mountains are calling- and I’d like to go but I can’t see them due to the smoke from the increase in wildfire activity in the Pacific Northwest that can be correlated to climate change and the Forest Services long standing policy on wanting to eliminate natural wildfires (good idea in theory)that might have burned small but now have led to large areas with overgrowth that burn too hot and very quickly” -John Muir, if he had lived now
I went to a cave today. #apecaves #pnwisbest #pnwonderland
You guys. I am two sales away from 500 sales on @etsy !! You better believe we’ll do something special to celebrate soon! Any ideas?! Another giveaway, open internationally this time maybe? • • • • • • 📷 of @tanfastic_ taken by @the.mclachlans#intertwinedsandalwood
Trillium Lake under the stars ✨ what a sight to see. . This is a large panorama so the first shot sets it up, but swipe left to see the entire view. . Last weekend during the mentor meetup I decided I didn't want to wake up early and drive up early for sunrise so why not stay the night and enjoy the nightscape. . This is an 8 shot panorama where each panel was 4 minutes long and then I shot the stars at 3 seconds for each panel with a filter that allows for the stars to pop with color and shine in the sky. . I wish the rest of the group could have come up at night, but it was pretty cool having the whole lake to myself while watching the Big Dipper ride the trees to the left, Mt. Hood shining in front and Perseus beaming from the sky to the right. Not a bad way to spend a night! . ➖➖➖➖⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #trilliumlake 📸#justinjlamb #bestoforegon #cascadiaexplored #exploregon #iloveoregon #northwestisbest #oregon #oregonexplored #oregonisawesome #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbeautiful #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #realoregon #thatoregonlife #thatpnwlife #traveloregon #upperleftusa #youcaninportland #youroregon #capture4cubes #boanoite #astrophotography   #igworldclub_astrophotography  #astrophotography   #nightscaper  #earthfocus  #special_shots #astrophotography #milkywaychasers

What up, it’s me, the 4th sister
I’ll have a slice of the volcanic humble pie with a side of can’t walk for 3 days 📐
I'm having flash forwards of our relationship when he's a teenager. At least I he's still small enough for me to beat him up 😉
Healthy Pizza is my jam 🍕 •Flat Out Thin crust pizza crust •Light cream cheese for the sauce •Sprinkle on Italian spices, red peppers, & garlic powder •Toppings (spinach, peppers, onions, and chicken breast are what I use) •Mozzarella cheese •Bake for 6 minutes and DONE! You don’t always have to eat salads when you’re in a meal plan! 😍😝 Also do you think I can convince my mom to buy me new plates? I’m obsessed 🍽
When smoke gets in your eyes😎 #PNWisbest #seniorcatsrock
Wings for dinner! And some loaded broccoli. The wings were done in the air fryer and I melted some herbed butter and and poured it over when they were done and added some can parm at the end. Freaking delicious! #dinner #healthylifestyle #wings #lowcarb #lowcarblifestyle #intuitiveeating #airfryer #pnwisbest
(5pics) Smoke from the California and B.C. fires at work and as I head home. As the sun shines through it, the light is a weird orange. #pnwisbest #wildfires #smoke #climatechange
Smoke, smoke, go away. 😑Even with the smoke, we enjoyed ourselves. Take that, forest fires! 😝 . . . . . #mountrainier #mountrainiernp #gobblersknob #lookouttower #backpacking #backpackinglife #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #upperleftusa
Bradie. Northwest Christian Senior. Volleyball player. Interested in nutrition and health. Thinking about going to medical school and possibly the military. Lover of coffee, books, and flowers. Took her first solo trip to CA this summer to see a friend and visit a few colleges. Finds joy in simple moments and loves adventure...she recently fell in love with surfing! #kcesenior #kcenglandphotography #classof2019
Rockfish on the fly has to be one of my absolute favorite fisheries. Cast. Wait. Strip... Strip... Strip.... BOOM! You got yourself some fish tacos! #saltwaterflyfishing #rockfish #seabass #flyfishing #fishing #pacificocean #pnwisbest
We’re not in the Shire anymore, Bilbo! 😜 . The fall semester is starting up soon, and while that PhD grind is still going strong with some dissertation deadlines fast approaching, at least I’m OUT of the #hobbithole . 🙌🏻 . Sometimes the smallest change can make a DRASTIC difference. 🌱 Like deciding to grow a health + wellness #sidehustle from my phone in my spare pockets of time. A year later, I’ve transformed my life — from my heart to my health to my home. . And now I get to finish this whole #gradschool thing in an office of MY design. . If I can do this, you can, too. 🤙🏻🖤🔥 . #dreambigger #lifebydesign #findyourepic
The haze adding an extra set of layers on the peaks above the middle fork. One day ill get better at writing up stories for my photos. Its hard without being overdramatic which in my opinion is a problem for a lot of photographers. I think there is way too much over dramatization in the writing or explanation on simple photos.
Learn to find the details. I stood along side 5 photographers and watched them all the take same photo in this barn. I looked up and saw the details of the roof. The others had no idea what they were missing because they didn't look at the details of the building. They moved on and never saw the intricate weavings of the wood work at hand. . . . . . . #pnw #pnwexplorations #pnwexplored #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #pnwisbeautiful #pnwisbest #pnwlifestyle #pnwlife #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwestisbest #pnwphotographer #upperleftusa #wanderlust #outsideculture #wood #barn #farmers #magnificent #agameoftones #way2ill #canon #summervibes #summer #fairweek

Starlight canoeing in the middle of the Cascades. The boat moved too much for me to shoot what was perhaps the brightest and clearest Milky Way I have ever seen, but that’s probably a good thing. A photo wouldn’t feel as real as the memory. 🌌
be a tree ~ be still, stay grounded, soak up the sun, drink lots of water, and enjoy the view🌲

Just took an impromptu trip down to #bowhillblueberries . ❤️ We didn’t stay long (because of all the smoke) but we did manage to pick nearly 5 lbs of organic berries between the 4 of us. See more over in stories. Now I’m feeling inspired to make something sweet! I’ll be sharing more from our visit along with a new recipe on posh soon. Also, my look of the day is linked with. Happy Monday! ✨ http://liketk.it/2x2dQ #liketkit @liketoknow.it
This smoke has me feeling down... anyone else?! We are staying in as much as possible and drinking too much coffee and snuggling Baby Z. And by snuggling, I mean chasing him around the house because Baby Z turns one next month and he's on the move 24-7!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I managed to get these two cuties up on my website today!! The link is in my bio. Can you believe how they look at each other? This couple is one in a million. Their wedding was a dream world that you do not want to miss!

We’re having a horrible air quality day (see my story) as smoke from wildfires in British Columbia continues to pour in. I’m trying to remember what clear skies look like so here’s a throw back to blue skies above Sherman Peak seen from the summit of Mt. Baker last month. . . . . #throwback #blueskiesahead #mtbaker #throwback #glacier #mountaineering #climballthemountains #beautifulplaces #explore #adventure #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #upperleftusa #pnwisbest #washingtonexplored #optoutside #getoutstayout #keepitwild #rei1440project #choosemountains #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #exploremore #letsgosomewhere #thatpnwlife #wildernessculture #liveoutdoors #northwestisbest #pnwdiscovered
💗💗💗 As I sit here contracting irregularly for the last 4 hours...much like I have for the last 5 days on and off...I’m filled with wonderment. What will you look like? Who will you grow in to? When will you decide to come!? I can’t wait to smell your sweet newborn smell, listen to you little coos, watch you meet your big brother and sister. Everyday feels a little like Christmas Eve does when your a little kid...filled with anticipation and excitement. 💗 It’s a magical special time for any mommy. And I’m cherishing it...Soaking it all up. Time moves SO fast I know you’ll be here if I blink and all this will become a memory as we dive into life with you. I love being a mommy. It’s worth every bit of hard. @nitzasalazarphotography #38weekspregnant #auburnwa #pnwisbest #snoqualmiefalls #snoqualmie #thirdtrimester #maternityshoot
There is no finish line when it comes to fitness. Because once you hit that goal weight, goal pant size or feeling of healthy... then there is maintaining or setting new goals and reaching even farther than you thought possible in the beginning💕 ⠀ ^⠀ ^⠀ When I first started it was all about losing the extra weight I was carrying around my waist. Then I hit that goal (see pic on right 👏) If I had just stopped when I hit that goal, you know what would have happened??? I would have gained it all back! ⠀ ^⠀ ^⠀ Instead, I set a new goal and started lifting weights. The scale went back up a bit but I still feel as healthy (or even healthier 😉) as I did the day I took that skinny picture. This is mindset, a commitment to always staying teachable, community and falling in love with the process rather than pinning it all on the end result 👍 ⠀ ^⠀ ^⠀ Don’t wait for another Monday! Just start where you are now and never give up on yourself 😊
We’ve got the Monday blues y’all. We’ve been stuck inside most of the past couple weeks due to the thick smoke hanging around here. The baby came down with a fever today so of course the older boys who are bursting with all this extra energy won’t let him nap. Things are breaking left and right over here to add to the fun. Most recently our dryer and I have a feeling the dishwasher is hanging by a string too. 😩😂. Wishing we were out at our favorite beach spot playing in the water! I do want to say though we are very thankful for the firefighters who are actually at the front lines of this nasty smoke to protect life and land. 💕 #momlife #boymom #momsofinstagram #honestmotherhood #thishometownlife #mondayblues #documentyourdays #unitedinmotherhood #frugalliving #sickday #childhoodunplugged #sendcoffee #readyforfall #pnw #pnwisbest

Played tourist today in the smoke!
On 28/06/18 our world changed❤ and we kinda sorta started a fam jam. This lil guy seemingly floating in mid air is our son Kendrick. On his first ever trip to the wooods! About 6 weeks ago he entered our lives and ever since then he hasn't stopped melting hearts. It's safe to say he's gonna be a huge beauty. Here's to your future lil King 👑 . . . . . . . #stopandstare #northern #mothernature #staywild #instagood #pnwisbeautiful #explorebc #travelbc #stayandwander #exploreab #greatnorthcollective #peoplescreative #tourcanada #explore #vancouver #landscapestyles_gf #pnw #pnwcollective #britishcolombia #pnwisbest #pnwwonderland #staypnw #pnwdiscovered
Who’s going out for the 2 day MA12 shrimp opener this week? I’m not going to make it out, but I’m excited to see how everyone does. 📷 credit: @dbobby23
"You don't think in depression that you've put on a gray veil and are seeing the world through the haze of a bad mood. You think that the veil has been taken away, the veil of happiness, and that now you're seeing truly." -Andrew Solomon 🌇 -------------- #summer #seattlehaze #smoke #wherethereissmoke #livewashington #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #seattlelife #seattleseahawks #seattlesunsets #washingtonstate #haze #seattleunderground #evergreenstate #emeraldcity #upperleftusa #pnw #gohawks #206 #12thman #pikeplacemarket #gohawks #igers_seattle #12strong #12s #seattlemet #UW #WA #seattlepulse #northwest #northwestisbest
What is something you are going to try to do before the summer ends? I want to go on a few more trips and may be even go paragliding. Even though the sky was full of smoke from the fires around us, we still made it a great trip. Don’t let one bad thing ruin it all for you. You can still find ways to bring happiness and joy into your life. ❤️❤️. So go out there and make the last few weeks of summer the best one yet.
Dreaming of clear skies. 🗻 Beautiful reflection of Mount Rainier a little over a month ago. I'm definitely missing beautiful sceneries like this that bring me so much joy during the summer. 🗻 #pnwphotographers #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #hiking #optoutside #nature #mountains #pnw_compass #pnwadventurers #SonyA6000 #sonyalphasclub #sonyimages #wander_washington #livewashington #naturephotography #pnwlife #pugetsound #pacificnorthwest #mtrainiernationalpark #mtrainierwatch #mtrainier #reflection #reflectionlake #mountaincrushmonday
The hike out to Cape Alava/Ozette Beach is beautiful.
🥕🥗🍯Mixing up some kraut on our coast getaway! A lot of times Gillian and I have a hard time sitting still and doing nothing. Making sauerkraut gives us something to do with our hands while also being relaxing and productive. Any sort of ferments are also a healthy and cheap thing to add to your diet (if you make them yourself).We traded these veggies from @wintergreenfarm and will happily be eating this kraut for a long time. . . . . . . . #fermentation #fermentedfoods #ferments #womenownedbusiness #food #pnwisbest #oregoncoast #girlswithtattoos #fermentyourvegetables #vegetables #sauerkraut #kraut #food52 #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #traveloregon #thisishowisummer #youcaninportland #localbusiness #wholegrains #2percentsat #fermentationstation

This is my brother Sam and his pet waterfall.
All I can say is yesterday's sunset was SO INCREDIBLE!! 😳 Every time I ask God to show up with those beautiful sunsets... WOW he does not disappoint! 😍💛
