Here are some larches.

Wandering in the mountains at sunset is my favourite. 🧡 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Super stoked about the new fall collection over at @tentree , especially this constellation hoodie that ✨glows in the dark✨! The best part is that 10 trees are planted for every purchase sold. They have already planted over 24 million trees all over the world! 🌲 Check out the link in my story and use the code “MEGHAN20” for 20% off your next order! #tentreeambassador ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @brendinkelly
Forestry Feature Friday: Arten Easty called this photo "A road less traveled in SW WA". What a great shot of the road less travelled in the woods. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #peopleofforestry #forestry #forestproud #woodwork #forests #ittakesaforest #arborist #ecology #pnwforest #pnw #pnwwonderland #washingtonexplored #thenwadventure #thatpnwlife #cascadiaexplored #explorewastate #washingtonsaf #wssaf
Happy Friday!! I hope everyone has a great weekend! This has been a long (but fun and rewarding) week for me and I’m so happy it’s finally Friday! Anyone visiting somewhere new this weekend? Or going to try and find some fall colors? 🍁Oregon is still bursting with colors and right when I thought the peak was over, a whole new wave of color changing started 😍
It's been a while since I did a #fridayintroductions post, mostly for lack of current pictures of my growing bump! 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 If you're new here you may have guessed that my name is Effie. I am a mom to TWO boys (Harvey is 2 and a half and this little one is due at the end of January) and wife to the amazing man who had the patience to take this photo of me. 📷 I am also a branding photographer and social media manager for everyday luxury brands in and around Tacoma, Washington. Photography keeps me sane on my worst days and working with social media has been a fun turn that I never would have guessed I would take on if you had asked me three years ago! 📲 I love sharing little bits of my life and work here on Instagram. It's kind of like a photo album of my favorite times and a diary of what is going on in my life all at once. ❤️ What's something that YOU love about Instagram?
Take a walk in the trees and smell the wild air 🌲 #thatpnwlife
Set, Spin, Rise. My first real attempt at a time lapse. This is three TLs in series, one at sunset, night, and sunrise. The flashes of light are from cars driving over Chinook pass. If you have ever wanted to take one it's easier than you think! Just set your exposure and focus to manual and put your camera on a tripod and use the built in intervelometer to take a picture every 1-10 seconds (if your camera doesn't have one they can be had for very cheap). Then you can upload them into photoshop in a series and convert it to a time lapse with different fades, zooms, and music. I've tried making a lapse 3 other times and learned the first time not to try and manual slowly pan the camera up, second time I ran out of batteries, third time I forgot to switch it to manual focus. Next attempt will be with the slider!
Thomas Family Farm, Snohomish WA by @pnw.outdoor.family . We are loving all your pumpkin patch pictures! Where are your favorite spots to get pumpkins in the PNW? In Portland, we love Bella Organic Farms, The Pumpkin Patch ( both on Sauvie Island) and Plumper Pumpkin Patch in Hillsboro, OR. The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island has a u-pick flower patch with tons of sunflowers which is also perfect for getting some beautiful photos! ⠀ ⠀ Do you have an awesome Pacific Northwest kid-friendly outdoor adventure you want us to feature?

Because I’m just so excited about these photos 😍🍁🍂
Day 5: . If you are wondering why there is no image here for day 4 it is because I spent the day at a friends lodge in Leavenworth to rest my knee, which was hurting after a long hike from the fay before. Since this is my landscape/nature account i didn’t have an image to upload (to see day 4’s photos check out my other account @tyler_penor ) . For day 5 I headed up north on the north cascade scenic byway. I stopped around “Liberty Bell” and was blown away by the views! This here is Liberty Bell mountain.
Anyone else fascinated by lighthouses? I love to visit lighthouses as the buildings have so much character and they typically offer some of the most beautiful views in the area! Alki Point lighthouse is no exception, it is a gorgeous spot to view the Puget Sound and the Olympic mountain range. Plus, it’s an active lighthouse used by the Coast Guard. In the summer months, you can tour the lighthouse for free too. #alkibeach #alki #seattlewa . . . . . . .#pnw #nw #northwest #pnwonderland #northwestisbest #upperleftusa #pnwlife #pnwcollective #thatpnwlife #thatNWadventure #cascadiaexplored #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #pnwdiscovered #livewashington #igers_seattle #familytravel #seattleblogger #outdoorfamilies #instatravel #instatraveling #seattlebloggers #optoutside #igers_tacoma #childhoodunplugged #familytravelblogger #travelblogger
The helicopter 🚁 - hope someone didn’t get a “summit fever” and had to be rescued. Summit fever: When a hiker/climber will do anything to reach the summit, even if they put themselves at risk of illness/ injury.

Franklin Falls.
A sea of blue under the summit trail on Mt.Townsend last weekend on the Olympic Peninsula. There was zero snow (that won’t last much longer!) but the views were endless and crisp. Hiking in the fall is as good as it gets ⛰🌲👌 _______________________________________________________ #mtownsend #hikeolympic #olympicnationalpark #olympicpeninsula #pnwonderland #washingtonexplored #optoutside #pnwisbeautiful #livepnw #greatnorthcollective #travel #explore #adventure #livefolk #outside_project #wildernessculture #ourpnw #wildernessnation #goexplore #getoutside #getoutstayout #milkyway #bestofthenorthwest #discoverearth #theimaged #exploretocreate #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #modernoutdoors
Mt. Baker 🍂🍁
I've spent the majority of my life telling my self stories about the inner workings of the universe, largely influenced by my interest in spirituality, space and sci-fi films. Overtime, these philosophies hardened into incontrovertible beliefs I held, regardless of how unconventional (read: bat-shit insane) they may be. _ It's uncanny how my reality was eventually moulded to photocopy my beliefs. People, circumstances and events transpired that supported these thoughts and I watched my beliefs externalize into tangible reality. Perhaps Jesus Christ said it best: "As you believe, so shall it be." My point being; get happy first, and then watch your external circumstances show up ☺ _ In frame: @john_hyppolite in a state between two parallel realities. _ #washingtonexplored  #visualsofearth  #nrthwst #stayandwander  #pnwonderland  #mtrainier #ourplanetdaily  #wildernessculture  #beautifuldestinations  #wonderlustcollective #takemoreadventures  #loveourplanet  #alltrails #pnwcompass  #wishyouwerenorthwest #discoverearth  #thegreat_pnw  #livefolk  #autumn  #mountrainier #mtrainiernationalpark  #mtrainierwatch #moodygrams #wondermore #mountainstones #modernoutdoors #earth_shotz #earthoutdoors #welivetoexplore

Recently on the blog I featured a Syrah from Snoqualmie. This photo from @maralphoto gives a glimpse of Autumn in Washington state. Part of the enjoyment when drinking a bottle of wine is thinking of the region the grapes were grown and tasting the distinct local characteristics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * * * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #autumnaesthetic #wawine #wawinemonth #wawineroadtrip #wawine #washingtonwine #washingtonwines #washingtonwinemonth #snoqualmiewine #pacificnorthwestwine #pacificnorthwesttrail #autumnstroll #slowlivingforlife #wanderlust #autumnseason #autumnglory #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwlifestyle #pnwlife #pnwwine #winelovers 🍷 #drinklocal #learnaboutwine #wineregions

This is how I feel about the fact that it’s Friday and we have another adventurous weekend ahead of us. I think I’ll actually get to see the magnificent Koma Kulshan from where we’ll be tomorrow, too! ——————————————— 📷: Me! (My best self-timed shot ever 😂)
Fog rests, the sun radiates and my feet continue to carry me along. Gratitude. #sunny #fog #gettingmywalkon #gratefulheart #beautyallaround #getoutside #themightycolumbia #tricitieswa #washingtonexplored #pnw #pnwlife
Happy Earth day! Lets all love nature! Here is a one of my most favorite nature moments. When I visit home there are three things I must do or my visit just doesn't feel complete. 1. Ride an outrigger boat to the islands 2. Beachside Bonfire picnic with all my favorite filipino comfort food 3. Ride a magnificent Carabao(Water buffalo) to the farm visiting all our animals. * * #moodygrams #ourmoodydays #forest #nature_lovers #landscapelover #moodyports #goodvibesonly #natureonly #lovelysquares #agameoftones #earthfocus #lonelyplanet #natgeotravel #sheexplores #livewashington #washingtonexplored #pnwparadise #thatpnwlife #pnwwonderland #discoverearth #ig_captures #wonderful_places #roamtheplanet #keepexploring #splended_shotz #landscape_captures #instalove #colors_of_day #igersmood #letsgosomewhere
