The silver lining with shorter days this time of year is that it’s so much easier to witness gorgeous sunsets like this one from last weekend 🤷🏻‍♂️
A little warm snap in the PNW. The sun is trying. Still waiting for the next windstorm to finish clearing the trees so we can call it over. Until then, enjoy the still air!
Surrounded by green bliss. Such a wonderful feeling when you're out in nature and get to see all the colors and unspoiled beauty that I so often forget we're blessed with when I'm going about in my day to day life throughout the week. When I hear Washington I think of the colors green, a certain tone of blue, and grey (because the rain and clouds lol). I also think of white because snow on the mountains. But when I hear a place like Hawaii I think of green too lol (and yellow and orange and all kinds of tones of blue). What colors come to mind when you think of where you live? I bet Europe has some fun ones with all those bright colorful streets and earthy tones in so many places! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tbt #green #colorful #trees #nature #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #alpinelakeswilderness #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #nikon #photography #landscape #explore #adventure #goodvibes #washingtontrails #herpnwlife
I’m sorry I’m sharing so much, but honestly the happiness I feel when I’m out here is too much not to share, I want to inspire others to get out there and find the beauty in nature - - - - #naturephotography #nature #naturelovers #wanderlust #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwhiking #staypnw #pnwisbest #pnwhikers #pnwliving #pnwparadise #washingtonstate #washingtonexplored #washingtontrails #washingtonstateparks #washingtonphotographer #wanderwashington #trees #goexplore #dogsofinstagram
Still 😷. Still wishing I was in sunless weather, except this time on a hill. Soon. Soon.

Check that #rootball 😱 #boekeburger for scale of course! 😂 This old growth sweetpea was knocked over decades ago, but thats pretty surprising with how much root it had! 😍🌲🐕 #pnwonderland #washingtontrails
Trail shot Thursday?
↟ sᴛɪʟʟ ᴡɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜ | Happy 2nd Birthday, Bryer! I honestly can’t believe he’s 2 years old! It seems so impossible. He will forever be my tiny baby son, no matter how old he gets. He’s a forever puppy for sure, as no matter where we go I hear “how old is the puppy?!” And when I tell them “almost 2,” they are dumbfounded. He’s spoiled beyond reason and I don’t even care. I love my Rat Man so much! ❤️ . Also, a happy birthday to his brother Lincoln ( @elrics.adventures ) and his other bros out there too! —— { ᴡɪɴʀʏ20 } • 20% off | @Traildogco . { ᴡɪɴʀʏ15} • 15% off | @Blueridgemuttwears . { ᴡɪɴʀʏ12 } • 12% off | @Kensiearnolddesigns . { ᴡɪɴʀʏ } • 10% off | @Twelvepawsca . { ᴡɪʟᴅɪɴɢ10 } • 10% off | @Muttpackoutfitters . { ᴡᴛᴀɪʟs10 } • 10% off | @Thenorthwestdog —— #adopted #rescue #dogsofinstagram #pnwonderland #hikingdogsofinstagram #hikingdogsofinsta #outdoorwithdogs #adoptdontshop #activedog #adventurewithdogs #exploringwithdogs #dogsthathike #dogsonadventure #optoutside #traildog #dogadventures #adventuremutts #pnw #wanderwashington #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #wildlingtails #bryer #thestatelyhound #thenorthwestdog

You find some interesting things on hikes. Many natural, some man-made, like this circle of rocks! What's the oddest man-made thing you've seen on a hike?

“While I am perfectly able of walking this planet without you, it would be the loneliest journey knowing you exist.” -J. Iron Word I know I’m able because I did it, but it was incredibly lonely doing it without you. There wasn’t a day that went by where I didn’t miss you or think about you. , In 147 days, we’ll get to do it together. ❤️ . Thank you @chuden12 for sending me this quote.

“Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.” — Herodotus . . #Throwback to when my fish was barely a preschooler who had time to be my weekly hiking buddy. With the Carbon River still dry from a late start to the rainy season, she created a makeshift slide from a boulder which would otherwise have been submerged in rushing water. . . . . . . #washingtontrails #choosemountains #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #kidswhoexplore #kidswhohike #letthemexplore #runwildmychild #childhoodunplugged #outdoorwomen #sheadventures #sheexplores #womenwhoexplore #playoutside #fitmom #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #cascadiaexplored #throwbackthursday #hiking #amongthewild #neverstopexploring #pnwisbeautiful #mtrainier #adventure #optoutside #outdooradventures #swimmer #judoka
This guy was making his way to where the geese and ducks are. The Nisqually NWR always surprises me every time I visit there. I enjoyed watching birds and other wildlife there like this lonely coyote in the grass field. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #animal #coyote #fox #idratherbeexploring #liveyouradventure #livelifeoutside #seeyououtthere #untamed #adventureislife #adventureisoutthere #backpackingadventures #tacoma #exploringtheworld #wearethewild #wildlife #wildlifephotographer #natgeo #lonewolf #natgeotravel #wandermore #washingtontrails #amongthewild #gosomewhere #getoutthere #neverstopexploring #pnw #goplaces #exploreoutdoors #canines #pnwdiscovered

Life's adventures are better together ❤ I wouldn't want to experience life and its many beautiful places and moments with anyone else but you! I can climb any hurdle with you by my side and I know we may not be exactly where we want to be yet in terms of career goals, house goals, life goals, etc. but the beauty is we have the rest of our lives to figure out everything and I'm happy to know I'll have the best support system I could ever ask for. Looking back on how far we've come in every aspect of our life and how much we've grown personally and in our relationship, I'm already very happy with how things are turning out. So much progress that we should be proud of! I can't wait to see what life has in store for us. Random sappy post I know lol, no special occasions today just feeling sentimental and appreciative of this man and to be alive and able to have the opportunities that I do. . . . . . . . . . . . #bestfriend #fiance #soulmate #love #washington #mountains #trees #dirtyharrysbalcony #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #beautiful #pnwcollective #hike #hiking #outdoors #nature #view #upperleftusa #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #optoutside #getoutside #nikon #landscape #explore #adventure #washingtontrails #northwestisbest
Social media can be such a downer sometimes. More often than not I find myself wanting to delete everything & never look back. I'm always comparing myself to other people & their lives when I know better. Yes there are plenty of beautiful & awesome people out there living amazing lives but social media is usually just a highlight reel (including my own feed) and you never know what's going on behind the scenes in someone's life & mind. It's inevitable for me though, I'm always putting myself down & comparing myself to others, physically, emotionally, mentally. Always wishing my life was "better" when I should just focus on myself & all the good things in my life that I'm constantly taking for granted, as well as always striving to better myself. The only person you're in competition with is yourself. It doesn't matter what other people are doing. If you aren't happy with something, do what you can to make the changes necessary & most of all take time to focus on the positives vs the negatives. The future is so uncertain & you can choose to look at that with a positive outlook (opportunities are endless) or a negative one (what if I fail, what if I don't reach this, I should've done this in the past & now I'm never going to be this, etc.). We're all on our own timeline with our own journeys, dreams, lifestyles, relationships, & goals. There is no RIGHT way. Definitely have been needing this reminder to myself lately so thought I'd share if anyone else is struggling. . . . . . . . . . . .

Woke up feeling sick yesterday but pushed myself out of bed for these views! Did the little climb up Dege Peak and loved it! The Sunrise side is beautiful and Mt. Rainier did not disappoint. Definitely sick today lol but I don't regret it one bit. Labor day done right and hike 21 in the books! I will be sharing more pics from this hike and our Sunday hike soon. Happy Tuesday everyone! Every day after a holiday weekend feels like a Monday though lol...but at least it's a short week! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #mtrainier #degepeak #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #view #mountains #washingtontrails #labordayweekend #hike #hiking #mountrainiernps
Yesterday's last minute evening hike had some great views for such a short trail! I've been wanting to get out to the Hurricane Ridge area and I'm glad we finally got to it last night before the trail closures this month for mountain goat capture & translocation! Definitely will need to come back to explore more trails. I'll be sharing more pics this week and this very impromptu trip got hike 20 in the books! Trying to hit 25 before fall ends and the snow comes and have to switch to the less exciting lowerland wet trails lol, so off to another hike in a bit! Happy Labor Day everyone! Enjoy your day off if you have it! . . . . . . . . . . #summer #hurricaneridge #hurricanehill #olympicnationalpark #goldenhour #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #landscape #view #washingtontrails #hike #hiking
Definitely one of my favorite hikes this summer. I still can't get over how strikingly blue and clear this water was! Still so happy we finally got to do this hike last Friday which has been on my list for years and also can't believe how we randomly lucked out and picked the only sunny day last weekend to do it lol! It was a lot cooler than it had been this summer but the smoke had cleared up and it was definitely still warm enough to enjoy a dip. Having hardly anyone around to enjoy this beauty in peace & quiet was the icing on the cake. One of the best parts about hiking for me is being unplugged, getting away from the chaos of society, and connecting with nature. Hard to believe summer is almost over but determined to enjoy as many outdoor activities as possible before the gloomy weather kicks in. This was hike number 19 and I plan to get a few more summer hikes in as well as some larch marches which I am super excited about! Hoping to at least hit 25 before the snow arrives and having to switch over to lowland stuff. Have you been able to get a lot of hiking in this summer? It's not too late to get out there! . . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #colchucklake #enchantments #washington #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #pnwlife #lake #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #landscape #nikon #photography #washingtontrails #alpinelakeswilderness #view #pnwcollective #blue #northwestisbest
