The art of nature, the wonder of water. So much to behold in morning frost.
The roads are looking more and more empty as winter gets closer! We love this picture by @brothers_christopher
reminding us to get out there while the North Cascades Highway is still open!
Happy Monday! Love that golden light at our 40-acre off-leash dog area. 📷 by @theliftedplati

Some jackass stole this "Center of Universe" sign on Nov 8, but the Fremont locals are rebuilding it again. Rejoice! The person who designed the original sign proclaims: "you can break, you can steal our art, but we're going to make more!"
Il successo non è definitivo, il fallimento non è fatale: ciò che conta è il coraggio di andare avanti.🖤🎀
I’m already missing those nights camped out by some nameless mountain lake. But I’m loving fall and excited for the white stuff to arrive!
We’ve started looking at places we’d potentially live in the near future, and this just may be the place. Plus, we can literally see the San Juan Islands from here and bring back all the feels of living in a tiny home and cleaning toilets. 🙌
The boot prints in the snow show the trail 🥾

——————————————————————— I’m always try to remind myself that not everything is (or has to be) in my control, and that some of the best times come from spontaneously saying yes to adventure. You might not know what’s in store, but it could be views like this! 🌙

Two little Mycena. 🙂🧡 Apparently mushroom "season" is ending soon (?) which is sad because I feel like we just got started! 🍄🌅 Anyhoo, I have read only 1 book on them this year, but there are 2 more on my bookstack calling for my attention. 📚 Hopefully next season I shall be better prepared. 🏞👀🔍🧠❤
The beginning of this trail reminded me that I need to do more river walks this winter. Snow’s great and all, but I’d love to spend more time looking at these tiny scenes, too. 🍄🌿🍂
YOU GUYS! Winter is here! 😃🙌🏻 ha, seriously though. Beyond stoked to have gotten out for my first day in a winter wonderland for the season that I had previously mentioned craving lamenting not getting last weekend! I swear I fall more in love with Washington by the day. I could sit and watch the sun set and the moon rise on snow covered peaks forever. Even if that does mean 3hrs down in the dark by headlamp on sketchy icy rock faces and stream crossings. This was one of those nights (that I feel like I’ve had countless of here) where everything felt right in the world and I’m exactly where I should be
♥️ Had a great, just-like-old-times birthday weekend with these two.
Really starting to feel like winter ❄️
