Mount Saint Helens
Every time I go into the North Cascades backcountry, I am left with a completely overpowering feeling of wonder. More than most expanses I dedicate myself to, something about the endless peaks at the crown of the Pacific Northwest's predominant bioregion just knock me out. This weekend's mountainscape of thawing ice totally transported my mind to highs seldom experienced. That is all.
Three nights, two hikes, one race for a total of 11.3 miles. This weekend we were constantly on the move! We conquered our first sunset hike then followed it up with an early morning trip. It was a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones! --- I'm headed in the Wander to Wonderland for #wanderlost2018 !
It’s forecast to be 90F in Seattle today. What I wouldn’t give to be wandering snow filled valley paradises to keep cool. AC is great and all, but there’s nothing like filling your hat with snow and washing your face in that blue, blue water. __ #optoutside #hiking #pnw #adventuredays #washingtonisbeautiful #tarn #snowinsummer #outdoors #mountains #landscape #naturalwonder #washingtontrails #bestofnorthwest #whereinwashington #seetheearth #choosemountains #nwadventurephoto #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #ourpnw #pnwdiscovered #theNWadventure #ourwild #wondermore #wowplaces #maketimetoseetheworld #adventurenthusiasts #visitpnw #wawx
After spending a week hiking in the Rocky Mountains and the desert of Utah, I’m happy to be HOME! I missed all the green, snow capped mountains, and amazing volcano views. 📸: @misslolo_333
hopping boulder fields with two days worth of gear strapped to my back. all i could think about was.....’where’s my next step’. aware in that moment. just that one step...then the next. and the next. fully present, stepping up, down, left, right. balancing on rock edges, points and faces. after two days...my body completely exhausted...sore legs, sunburnt body....when i thought i couldn’t possibly take another....i just kept focus on the next single step. life lessons from nature💚 ••••••••••• roughly 15 miles, three lakes, two nights and one missed summit...completely bushed and thankful for the paths less traveled and every awakening moment in the wild. #pnw #awildheart #pacificnorthwonderland #pacificnorthwest #cascadiaexplored #blackpeak #upperleftusa #wild #adventurer #adventuretime #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #explorer #washingtonexplored #northcascades #upperleftisbest #wander #wanderlust #exploretocreate #artofvisuals #mountainsoul #mountainscalling #womenwhohike #womeninthewild #optoutside #naturephotography #nature #intothewild #womenwhoexplore

Hard hikes = good hikes especially with this gal 😏
A morning lake view in the mountains. Taken over the weekend. #talesfromthetrail 📷 Moto Z2 Force
The mountains are always calling. . . I figure this one shot won’t get much of a reaction, but it encapsulates much of what I love about the great outdoors. It was taken Saturday morning from Labyrinth Mountain. After photographing some of the surrounding views of neighboring peaks, I started looking back down the way from which I had climbed. . . The photo shows a glimpse of Theseus Lake at the top. You can also see a small, winding stream from snow runoff. You see the warm morning sun illuminating one side of the small trees and a cold, bluish shadow on the other side. The perspective of the photo reminds me of the workout that I went through to get to such a beautiful place. This view will provide motivation to get outside and explore again. . . Those of you that hike can hopefully relate. What a blessing to be able to spend time in places like this. . . ——————————— #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwhiking #pnwroamers #explorewashington #washingtonexplored #nwisbest #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #justgetout #thenwadventure #workoutmotivation #exploretocreate #wilderness #cascadiaexplored #hiking #washingtontrails #wanderlust #moodygram #artofvisuals #landscape_capture #landscape_lovers #natureperfection #alpine #optoutside #canon #ncw #sunrise ———————————

One of the absolute highlights of our #HendersonsOnTour trip was taking the train down from Vancouver to Seattle. It was a beautiful still and sunny day, and the Georgia Strait was full of wildlife - we saw 10 bald eagles! #washington #travel - - - - - #seattle #upperleftusa #pacificnorthwest #travelling #washingtonstate #traveler #washingtonexplored #livewashington #wa #tourism #northwestisbest #travelingram #igtravel #traveller #travelblog #tourist #traintravel #pugetsound #straitofgeorgia #pier #vancouver #bellinghambay #boundarybay #wildlife #baldeagle
↟ ᴛʀɪᴀʟ ᴀɴᴅ ᴇʀʀᴏʀ, ʟᴏᴛs ᴏғ ᴇʀʀᴏʀ | We’ve been having a lot of issues at night and neither of us are getting much sleep. We’ve had a lot of accidents in the house from both dogs and cats. It has been trying to find who works best and where. . We started out leaving the bedroom door open, as it’s not a large room and we wanted them to have space, but the cats went buck wild all night, so we started closing them in, which worked okay, but then caused dogs to become stressed from being locked out of the room and cats to be without a litter box, leading to panicked pooped outside of the room and cat accidents in. . Each night, we learn something new and try something different, but it is getting exhausting not sleeping and cleaning up disgusting messes all night. I’m confident we can figure out the best system and I know that the change from living in a house to living in a travel trailer is one that takes time and some effort on our part. —— #nature #naturephotography #staywild #getoutside #optoutside #loveyourstate #canon #teamcanon #canonrebel #exploremore #landscapephotography #landscape #wanderlust #wander #pnwwonderland #optoutside #adventuremutts #folkgreen #pnw #explorewashington #wanderwashington #washingtonstate #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored

Last Sunday I went to this fire lookout to shot the Milky Way. It was an incredible experience. @riverborn_rn and I had the whole lookout to ourselves (besides the deer and possibly a bear). We were literally going back and forth over the mountain top shooting sunset, blue hour, and the Milky Way for hours! Mount Rainier and PNW never disappoint! #cascadiaexplored #destinationwashington #nwfirelookouts #mrnp #mountrainier #nps #nightphotography #milkywaychasers #pocket_nights #pnwisbest #pnw #pnwwonderland #canon5dmarkiv #sigma14 #suntopfirelookout #k5summer #komo4 #washingtonstate #kcamerafeature @kcamera #washingtonexplored

12,280’ up was quite the treat 🤙 • Quote of the trip comes from the one and only @samsefzik who upon gazing at the burned out forest around us, sincerely questioned “Is this beetle damage?” 😂 needless to say, we all had a grand time laughing and a beautiful view from the summit awarded us at the top 🤙

Keepin’ watch! This weekend was one for the books! Having the opportunity to camp along the beaches of the Olympic Peninsula was an absolute treat - it’s moments like this, when you wake up to the sound of waves crashing, a slight nip in the air and the smell of freedom - it’s times like this and places like this that really bring about an appreciation for all that this life has to offer - all you’ve gotta do is get out there and see for yourself! Have a killer week ahead! ✌🏼 . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #dogsofinstagram #dogmodel #lifewithnoleash #pnwphotographer
