Where I’m from, when we say someone took a walk into the woods, it means that they have died... which is completely opposite of how I feel when I walk into the woods... but yet, it makes perfect sense.... I hope that’s exactly what it’s like....#wanderwashington #pnwonderland #natureiscoolerthanyou #hikelife #walkinthewoods #trailshot
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. πŸ“· by @theliftedplati
Sometimes you find unexpected things when you get out of your car. This mural is located on the back of a vacant building in Fall City next to @sweet_blissfull_blooms. . . . #thegreatfamilyadventure #fallcity #washingtonstate #upperleftusa #pnw #westcoast #mural #painting #celestial #explore #wanderwashington #sun #creativepeople #igerswashingtonstate #pnwonderland #localtourist

Hey, Grandma. Missed you. β™₯️ #pnwwonderland #bonsaitree #missyoualways #sanjuanisland

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!"

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!
"Hey Vu, shouldn't you get ready instead of taking pictures?" - nah lol Looking back at one of the best climb that I've been on, thanks @ryan_climbs and @_freddyromero_ for putting up with me forgetting my boots at home and waiting for me while I drive two hours out to rent some replacement boots. I should have just climbed in my sandals. πŸ˜‚ ______ #pnwonderland #ourpnw #northwestisbest #cascadiaexplored #wanderwashington #pnwlife #pnwcollective #welivetoexplore #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #wanderlust #climbing #discoverearth #getoutstayout #exploremore #neverstopexploring #natureaddict #getlost #bewild #visualsofearth #roamtheplanet #adventureculture #fujifilmxt10 #optoutside #mountaineering #mountainlife #choosemountains #mountbaker
Chomp Monday like Cooper chomps this stick.. Who am I kidding, Monday is like my Sunday which is basically worse πŸ™ˆ . #mondaymotivation #chompit #stickittotheman
So, this happened...
I love places like this, they provide the perfect escape from the chaos of the world. When my head and my heart get overwhelmed I always find that walking through forests and admiring the beauty of mountains puts our lives into perspectives. Nothing is too big to overcome and in reality our problems can all be solved as long as we have the courage to face them. Where do you go to find your peace? . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #mountains #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer
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. πŸ™Œ
My brain this morning. 😡 #brainfog #happymonday
What a glorious sunset🌞
Take me to a quiet place with earth under our backs, cradled in a forest grade. Here we will point out things we see and acknowledge things we do not. In solitude we will take in the wisdom around us, and listen to the forest talk. I haven’t landed on a favorite hike, I said I would never hike the same trail twice because there is just too much to see and do. This was my 3rd time to colchuck so I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious and it’s my favorite hike πŸ˜‚ . . #colchucklake #justagirllovinglife #herpnwlife #wanderlust #wanderluster #life #love #happiness #neverstopexploring #neverstopdreaming #wanderer #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #pnw #allthehikes #idhikethat #womensupportwomen #loveherwild #leaveherwild #exploreeverything #adventuretime #adventure #sheexplores #pnwhiking #pnwhikers #pnwexplored #washingtontrails #wanderwashington
Happy Monday! πŸπŸ‚
The boot prints in the snow show the trail πŸ₯Ύ
Another 20 mile weekend in the books! Had to squeeze in as much as I could since I'll be in San Diego this week. Trading mountains and sunrises for beaches and family time, and I’m really looking forward to it. Nowadays I find myself getting a little caught up in hiking, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. I love it, but at times I feel like I’m running a marathon. On this vacation I’m going to recharge and catch my breath (quite literally). I know that winter will bring some weather that will keep me inside, and before you know it I’ll wish I was on the trails again. Maybe I’m just a little burnt out right now, and I’m sure it will pass because that’s life. Cheers to my Monday being my Friday, and sleeping in until 9 AM for the next 5 days. ✌🏻 . . . . . . . . . . #herpnwlife #pnwonderland #thenwadventure #pnwdiscovered #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #optoutside #rei1440project #pnwparadise #werehikers #hikemoreworryless #neverstopexploring #mountaingirls #likeamountaingirl #lifehappensoutdoors #idratherbeinnature #getoutstayout #adventureenthusiasts #adventureculture #wildernessbabes #thegreatpnw

Two little Mycena. πŸ™‚πŸ§‘ Apparently mushroom "season" is ending soon (?) which is sad because I feel like we just got started! πŸ„πŸŒ… Anyhoo, I have read only 1 book on them this year, but there are 2 more on my bookstack calling for my attention. πŸ“š Hopefully next season I shall be better prepared. πŸžπŸ‘€πŸ”πŸ§ β€
Lazy Monday mornings.
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. πŸ„πŸŒΏπŸ‚

Felt extra lucky to be in Seattle after I checked the air quality in San Francisco and temperature in Chicago #NoFilter #hikingadventures #pnwonderland
I can't finish the series without an interior view. My first time at the Spheres was late Friday afternoon my first week for small meeting. Unfortunately this (top) floor was closed for a private event. I didn't have much time to explore the building as a whole then, but it was interesting enough that I made sure to get there the next opportunity I had. During that next visit, i was able to get to the top floor and can understand why it was closed; what a great space - perfect for hosting private events! From what I can tell, outside of the occasional events, the main use of the structure is to provide a variety of different impromptu work spaces for the Amazon campus, all within a sort of urban park. I dont know the project cost, but it is a great piece of architecture, and I'll look forward to spending more time within. . . . . . #travelgram #letsgoeverywhere #washington #washingtonstate #explorewashington #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #pacificnorthwest #pnw #pnwonderland #pacificnw #pnwlife #upperleftusa #seattle #seattlewa #spheres #thespheres #architecture #archdaily #explorer #wandering #dayone #phonephotography #architecturephotography
YOU GUYS! Winter is here! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ» 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
So many pictures I need to upload from Washington β€’ β€’ β€’ #washington #pnw #olympicnationalpark #optoutside #travel #hike #rainforest #quinaultrainforest #wanderwashington
Thankful for you. πŸ˜€
β™₯️ Had a great, just-like-old-times birthday weekend with these two.
Really starting to feel like winter ❄️
I’ve always considered myself to have a very adventurous spirit, whether it’s driving out to hike trails, travel to new cities, try new food or try something new, I’m always down. When I moved to Seattle 5 years ago I had probably only been out hiking a handful of times. After I got Jodie, my life changed in more ways than I could have ever imagined. Her adventurous spirit and relentlessly curious mind encouraged me to get out more and we’ve never looked back since. So on #nationaltakeahikeday it’s only fitting to post a photo of my constant adventure buddy. Here’s to many more adventures and moments to cherish forever πŸ€™πŸ» . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #stayandwander #getoutstayout #optoutside #rei1440project #roamtheplanet #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #wanderlust #awakethesoul #choosemountains #mountrainier #earthfocus #explore #exploretocreate #dogs #dogsofinstagram #huskiesofinstagram #keepitwild #upperleftusa #dogmodelsearch #wanderwashington #seattlelife #neverstopexploring #adventureisoutthere #beautifuldestinations

[insert lion king song lyrics here] . Jokes aside, so proud of this little guy for being such a good sport and powering through all our hikes!! This one right here was about 12 miles long and he loved every moment of it. Safe to say he was out like a light once we made it back to the car! ✌🏼 . . . . . . #pnwonderland #pnw #stayandwander #rei1440project #getoutstayout #majestic_view #lifewithoutlimits #travel #travelgram #optoutside #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogmodel #cockerspaniel #awakethesoul #wanderlust #nikon #nikonphotography #explore #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #createcommune #agameoftones #wanderwashington #portrait #portraitphotography #adventureisoutthere #outside_project #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations
