Nestled in the Central Cascades of Washington and accessible by 47 trailheadsβ€”one being the famous Pacific Crest Trailβ€”the Alpine Lakes Wilderness is home to more than 600 miles of trails, countless jagged peaks, and sapphire-colored lakes. Compared to other heavily trafficked areas in the Pacific Northwest, such as Olympic National Park and Mt. Rainier National Park, the Cascades are relatively quiet but just as lovely. North Cascades National Park, located less than 100 miles north of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, saw just over 30,000 visitors in 2018. If you’re looking to get outdoors and soak up some glorious landscapes (with far fewer people than are found in the big-name parks), head to the link our bio. Photo by @wheretowillie. #traveldeeper

Did you know that Olympic National Park is home to four of the few remaining temperate rainforests in the world? Like a scene from a fairytale, the Hoh, Quinault, Queets, and Bogachiel river valleys are draed with vibrant mosses and littered with old growth Sitka spruce, lined with 73 miles of Pacific Ocean and home to some of the most impressive wildlife on the planet. It's the kind of place you need to see first-hand to truly appreciate. Find yourself on amongst it on a backpacking trip with Lasting Adventures this summer! #lastingadventures #olympicnationalpark #backpackingolympic #pacificnorthwestsummercamps

March 22 is #WorldWaterDay and for me, backpacking has always provided a good reminder that clean water should not be taken for granted. In addition to finding ways to provide safe and clean water to everyone around the world, we need to make it a daily habit to protect and preserve what’s left of our precious water sources. Photo: filtered water from a stream, #OlympicNationalPark #WildernessCoast, Sept 2017. Water yellow from tannins, tasted like dirt but delicious when that’s all we had!

I’m saying this to myself and anyone else who needs it today, don’t look back. Don’t let the haters get to you. Don’t let doubt enter your mind. Don’t let your past mistakes own you. You are stronger than your realize. You are not stupid for doing something other’s don’t understand. You can do this. Just keep going. Keep pushing yourself towards your dreams. You got this! . . . . . #girlboss #portangeles #portangelesphotographer #olypenphotographer #olympicnationalpark #olympicpeninsula #olympicnationalparkweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #icelandelopementphotographer #icelandadventurephotographer #icelandphotographer #alaskaelopementphotographer #alaskaweddingphotographer #canon5dmarkiii #createexploretakeover #pacficnorthwestphotographer #pnwphotographer #liveauthentic #photographysouls #westcoastphotographer

2 exciting announcements: 1. A limited edition print run (25 total) of my drawing β€œOlympic National Park Travel Poster” is fresh off the press from @bellevuefineart ! 2. I’ve teamed up with Washington’s National Park Fund @wanatlparkfund for their upcoming 2019 Spring Dinner & Auction on April 13th in Seattle! 2 of these prints will be available to bid on. WNPF is the official philanthropic partner of Washington’s beloved Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks. The funds raised by WNPF help fund 50-75 projects annually in these parks. This year they are raising funds to support Improving Visitors' Experiences in these parks, and they hope to raise $310,000 or more! Want to help support the parks? You can purchase a ticket to the dinner and auction, make a donation in lieu of attending, or learn about other ways to help on their site. Link in my bio! . Ps. Check the comments for the story behind the art! #OurBackyardRocks #TheParkFund

Not gonna lie, I've been back in the US for a month now and I'm getting pretty excited to travel internationally again! But first - my dad @dglupini is coming to visit in Colorado for a few days and then I'm going to San Diego with my lovely friend @marissa.carnahan and meeting up with @heatherbarclay who lives there! Definitely some fun stuff in store coming up. ☺️ Let me know what you're up to over the next couple weeks in the comments! . . . . . #travel #hammock #hammockcamping #olympicnationalpark #olympicpenninsula #washingtonstate #washingtonstate #nps #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #goprohero5 #camping #camplikeagirl #colorado

Some people call it the Tree of Life. With its amazingly viewable roots seemingly supplying the tree with life despite having no soil, it seems to be immortal. Located just north of Kalaloch Lodge, near the Kalaloch Campground, "Tree Root Cave" features a tree like no other. Still breathing while its roots travel to nowhere.
