What we see depends mainly on what we look for. . . . #johnlubbock #fidalgoisland #wanderwashington #vantagepoint #anacortes #pnwisbest
Now that I have a Jeep that will take me to the mountains in the snow, LETS SHRED.
Views like these are why I take forest service roads for fun on the weekend! 😍 After driving through the woods for 30 minutes on a washed out road - I turn a corner, dropped my jaw and pulled over to soak it all in.
When you hashtag #bringonspring ...and Mother Nature hashtags right on back the next day. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ At least I still have my pretty flowers... β„οΈπŸŒ· β€’ #pnwsnow #bringonthesnow #reversepsychology #mothernature #mothernaturessenseofhumor
One of my favorite spots I’ve been to in 2018.
A little adventure today. πŸƒFelt good to be outside. Started out sunny, ended up getting snowed on.πŸŒžβ„ #fitmom #pnwmom #pnw #getoutside #goforahike #wanderwashington #umtanumfalls #yellowchurchcafe #sundayfunday
Gotta love these @seahawks creations from last year. Already missing football season! #CWStateFair
A weekend away in the woods.
I had to share this on video this is insane we got a brutal one blowing in I love when the weatherman says we may get a little wind and a little snow how about 40 mile an hour sustained winds and snow blowing up got to love the Pacific Northwest spawned in and forever in love #pnwnative #myhome #outmywindow #lookingup #squal #washingtonstate #wasingtonwondar #freez #pugetsound #power #nofishing2day #noboatingtoday #wanderwashington #wanderlust #godsplan #godsblessings #amazeing
β€œThe sky, pink fire across the earth with clouds stretched out, combed in curls like silver hair. Silver streaks that float above our heads like little lines of dreams we won’t unveil. We see with eyes that’ve seen too much, But we know nothing. We see with eyes that won’t see enough, But we know love.” | AVA Even amidst the overwhelming chaos that exists in my life, there are moments nestled within saturated with joy, & love, & peace. Moments I shift my focus to and feel clarity. Moments that keep me going, still. Things are messy. But, as one of my greatest inspirations once said, when you’re going through hell, keep going. Because what’s on the other side is greater, brighter, and more vibrant than the darkness that persists in the present. We will get there. One day at a time.
The land of gorgeous waterfalls

Enjoying unexpected winter Wonderland πŸ„β›„β„
Waterfall dreaming. One of my favorite things about this waterfall is the way light hits the mist!

Hey cutie πŸ’–
Getting lost on a Sunday ✨
~ Gravity: Paused ~ Sometimes the ocean seems to defy gravity as storm waves explode hundreds of feet high! My favorite part of this image isn't the huge storm waves, though, or the intense clouds that seem to be mimicking the waves. Nope. My favorite part is that tasty, creamy sea foam leaping toward my camera in front. Don't you want to scoop some of it up in a glass? 🍺 . . . ======================= Full-size prints and image licensing are available at www.wildnwbeauty.com.

"There are years that ask questions, and years that answer." - Zora Neale Hurston β€’β€’β€’ Working on my Travel/Personal 2017 Year in Review blog, and it was one of the hardest, fullest, craziest calendar years I've ever lived. But there are some incredible photos from far off places to the coziness of home.

Have any of you seen the YouTube channel Primitive Technology? My sister @keturahrahel just told me about it yesterday, and it’s truly addictive, but in a good way. . . No talking, no subtitles, just a man in the wilderness making things with his hands using only what nature provides. . . We got totally sucked in last night and Olive decided she wants to make a house in our favorite nature walk destination. . . I know watching this channel will give them ideas that will take our nature walks and mud station play to the next level and I can’t wait to watch their creativity unfold as we enter the spring and summer. . . If you haven’t seen this channel go check it out right now. Especially if you love to encourage nature play and getting dirty. Seriously amazing stuff. #primitivetechnology #earthschooling #waldorfhomeschool
There is part of me that always feels slightly guilty about setting down the first track marks across pristine snow... how about you?
⏱ 2:34:00 / 4.97 miles of snow with @paulwhohikes & Romeo!! πŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£ 6th hike together in 2018! #nature #getoutside #takeallthehikes #winterhike #wanderwashington #algeralp #algeralps #snow #dogsofinstagram
Rise and shine! Stayed up wayyyy passed my bedtime and yet I woke up bright eyes a bushy tailed. Took a better part of last night (till about 4am...😢) researching trails, hiking trips, recent trail reports, and I am ready to kill it this hiking season! Now if only mother nature would cooperate and ease up a bit on this snow...πŸ™ƒ β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #riseandshine #choosemountains #choosehappiness #theoutbound #picoftheday #hiking #hikingculture #backpacking #wander #pnwwanderlust #wanderlust #nature #sunset #wanderwashington #livewashington #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwcompass #pnwisbest #pnwisbeautiful #pnwroamers #pnwhikers #pnwparadise #pnwpeople #pnwunplugged #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #rei1440project #optoutside
Here's your Sunday moment of Zen. No snow in seattle but it looks like just about everywhere else got it, I've seen some nice gorge pictures popping up already.
The snow is coming down outside but campgrounds for this summer’s adventures are starting to book up. So that means today is a planning day. One of the things I love embracing about road life is how spontaneous it is, but at some point there has to be a little bit of an itinerary involved. Honestly booking campgrounds this far in advance is a tedious task that I put off as long as possible, kind of like taxes πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, because committing to plans kind of scares me. I’ve always been a last minute, go with the flow kinda girl (token Aquarius πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ). But when I think about all the adventures that lye ahead, all the new friends I’ll make, the old ones I’ll see again, all the new places I’ll explore, and all the favorite ones I’ll return to - I get so stoked. My giddy excitement mixed with those big snowflakes coming down right now, it kind of feels like christmas morning πŸ’•
Even in the rain, sleet and stormy winds, we got out and explored the woods. Waterfalls, no matter how small, have such unique beauty. #waterfall #winterwaterfall #winterwonderland #snowcovered #snowcovered #snowcoveredtrees #52hikechallenge2018 #journeyto100 #hikerbabesorg100 #trail11 #hike11of52 #365milechallenge #mileagemonday #mile55
Weekend drive along #ChuckanutDrive : This 24 mile side trip (link in bio) covers marine aquaculture along Samish Bay, agriculture in the north portion of the Skagit Valley, runs along the west edge of the Chuckanut Mountains that supplied sandstone for buildings in Bellingham and Fairhaven. Also recommend stopping a bite and sunset views at the historic @thechuckanutoysterbar. . πŸ“·: 1940 postcard from @washingtonhistory , and images from @thechuckanutoysterbar.
Last night was a wee bit purrrrty
It was a brisk day on the bay yesterday! The light filtering through the clouds made for amazing shadows.
Doing a site visit with local access groups to prepare for a spring trails project. Lots of seeping routes at World Wall I right now. Spring is coming though! #snoqulamierock
