Today I bought a used book about Magellan and it reminded me that I have dreams.
Away from the wilderness for a bit and love grows fonder. People that know me know I can't stop talking about it. I dream of it each night. Anonymous forays into the hills. Quiet walks, breathless silences - but then bad memories coming on like fire engines.
But their heat is dissipated by the cool of the leaves, absorbed into the still earth and rushing water and washed away for a while.
In my dreams the wilderness keeps beckoning toward me gently, saying, "I'm gonna keep you in love with me for a while." #pnw #pnwcollective #cascadiaexplored #mtnsnow #mtbaker #hiking #washingtonexplored #whatcomtalk #northcascades #cascadia #snowshoeing
Year 2: Impressive turnout, but everyone knows where November is on the calendar, and what needs to be done.
Mayor Kelli Linville who offered a speech on pledging respect and dignity to every person that you meet which should be common decency but not all share the sentiment so people march and chant for it and hope the nation's President will cease his harmful rhetoric while womxn stand up for their rights they fight for you they gave you life so treat them kind accordingly and take the time to thank them please.

Friday by the fire sounds mighty good to us.
Make sure you are maximizing your deductions. Investment management expenses are tax deductible. You can deduct investment expenses over 2% of your AGI. If your investments are in the form of an IRA or 401K, you can only deduct if you paid the fees with money from outside the account. #deductions #taxtip #accountant
A winter walk in the woods.
This is an old photo, from 2015. We can't get out there every day. So thankful when we can 🌲☀️
You know it's going to be a good meeting when you get @jonessodaco

Chuckanut Drive is one of my very favorite stretches of road anywhere in the country. And as many times as I've driven up or down it's 21+ mile length, I still pull over and start snapping pics like I'm seeing the views for the first time...
Saturday evening @courtneywylienash
and I had just finished a soggy Cougar lap (insert joke here) and arrived to the bottom to find sky full of raging pastels. We drove to a little secret spot on Lake Whatcom as fast as we could to take it all in. Never have I seen the water reflect these colors. This is a 100% unfiltered image. It was a few minutes of pure awe watching the sky and water transform through this palette. It was one of those moments where I felt very small in a big, beautiful world. .

I'd loved her always
She didn't know
I tried patience
Let a friendship grow
