Don’t mind me, just posting my second favorite shot of the 20 I took 😉 I won’t post the other 18, that’d be overkill. Hope everyone is enjoying their first week of summer ☀️ #oregonexplored #oregononly #onlyinoregon #bestoforegon #oregonisbeautiful

No matter how old a person gets a father is always special in their lives and when someone loses their father to death there is a big void left. Sometimes there is so much that you wanted to share with your father but did not get the chance and now that he is gone you feel as though the pain will never end. Dad, it’s been so long since you were gone, but I still miss you. I kept all the memories of us together in my heart. I really wish you were here. Today is your 5th anniversary since you left us and I still miss you so much. May you continue to Rest In Peace Dad 🙏🏽 #lifejourney . . . . . . . . #girlgetoutside #cascadiaexplored #optoutside #beautifuldestinations #findmeoutside #womenwhohike #pnwonderland #welivetoexplore #outdoorwomen #livewylder #rei #HerPNWLife #ourplanetdaily #wildernessculture #goneoutdoors #womenwhoexplore #whyihike #womeninthewild #agameoftones #wildernessbadass #pnwoutdoorwomen #staywildmagazine #outsidemagazine #bpmag #washingtontrailsassociation #sonya6000 #oregonexplored #bestoforegon #traveloregon

Found a new waterfall I haven’t been to before because the trails have been closed. PonyTail falls is a couple yards away from the very top of Horsetail falls. You can actually get behind this waterfall though. #travel #photography #naturelovers #portlandprotainment #hike #theworldguru #naturephotography #oregonexplored #oregonnw #pacificnorthwest #pct #pdx #portlandoregon #portlandphotographer #photo #columbiarivergorge

Remembering this weekend and all the other weekends we hustle and pack and drive and sleep and pack and hurry home again. I’m happy for that - all of it. But tomorrow we leave for a month and a half. We’re getting married. We’re going on a road trip. We’re going to have a good time.

I love how unpredictable the sea is. How one minute she can be calm and serene, luring you in with the lull of the gentle waves..and in the blink of an eye she can turn on you with a fierce and terrifying fury. There is a sort of beauty in that kind of chaos. - - - #sunset #sunsetphotography #oceanphotography #ocean #oceansunset #oregoncoasttrail #oregon #oregoncoast #oregonexplored #beautifuloregon #oregonsunset #newportoregon #beautiful #peaceful #lifeisgood #hiking #scenicphotography #nature #naturephotography #wild #wilderness #oceanwaves

#kyrgyznature repost @thewayoverland New episode now live on YouTube! Check it out through the link on our profile! 👍🏼🚐🇵🇰 . This was our first camp spot in Kyrgyzstan. Apart from the massive landscape, countless horses, and a few screaming marmots we felt pretty isolated. . The warm hospitality we received in Pakistan continued to deliver though. A local Shepard, (who spoke zero English) rode up on his horse, got off, then offered his horse to go for a ride. Jolie went for a spin then with nothing but a smile and a wave he rode off down the valley with two of his mates who had also arrived. . . . . . . . . . . .

I was looking through my photos today and thought I’d share this one I took at the Wooden Show Tulip Festival. If you get a chance to come to Oregon in late April or early May you should plan a day trip out here.

I have only ventured down to Newhalem so I know there is a lot more coast, but of the coastal cities I have visited Cannon Beach has the best vibe. Cool little shops, easy access to the beach, clean and friendly to name a few.

My first night near Waldo lake from over the weekend was so beautiful. Made it to one of the other locations in time around the lake for sunset. Almost felt like I was at the coast because of the breeze and the small waves clashing against the rocks. Was great to have spent the time with my dad, it's not often we spend some quality time so I won't be forgetting this memory 😊 Hope you all enjoy this beautiful sunset! #photo #pdx #oregon #landscape #centraloregon #landscapephotography #sunset #chasinglight #pacificnorthwest #pnw #justgoshoot #sonya7iii #oregonexplored #traveloregon #travelphotography #travel #photography #waldolake #lake #beautifuloregon #onlinegallery #visitoregon #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #bestoforegon #bealpha #oregonnw #onlyinoregon #pnwlove #YESVCO

I saw that photo of the father and toddler daughter; face down, bloated, dead on the banks of the Rio Grande. I saw her arm was plunged inside his shirt. Her little hand seeking the comfort of her dad’s skin. I heard about kids Seeley’s age taking care of toddlers, of kids not getting toothbrushes, showers. I’ve heard the reports of the stench and the sounds of children crying, and perhaps more worrying, the silent stone faces of trauma gone bone-deep. My daughter fell asleep in my arms tonight. Her hair was washed, teeth brushed. She had a cough and I gave her medicine. I feel like I’m crawling out of my skin sometimes thinking about these families. I’ve cried myself to sleep thinking about babies sleeping on concrete, parents not knowing where their kids are. I kissed my daughter’s clean and restful face tonight and am now catching up on news and crying. Again. For all these words, there are no words. . . . . #concentrationcamps #occupyicepdx #amerikkka #powertothepeople #abolishICE #wherearethechildren #intersectional #goodtrouble #righteousanger #undocumented #keepfamiliestogether #woctothefront #pnw #pdx #j20 #radicaldharma #cascadiaexplored #rosecity #wocartists #mother #portland #pnwcollective #pnwwonderland #oregonexplored #wepioneer #gaia #greatnorthcollective #adventureculture #activism #dobetter

Yesterday, a friend of mine gave me an incredible opportunity to check out something pretty special. She had told me about accidentally finding a Turkey Vulture nest on her property in the past. At the time we had chatted, over the weekend, she had not stumbled upon one this year. Later that night she called me all excited and said she had found one again! (She was out taking a walk and not specifically searching it out) I love Turkey Vultures. At least one parent was nearby. I took some quick pics and let them be. I have never seen chicks in the wild. Made my day! . . . #turkeyvulture #chicks #fluff #babies #bird #birdsofinstagram #pnw #oregonexplored #photographersofinstagram #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wild #nature #naturephotography #summer #oregon #pnwphotographer #bestnatureshot #shotoftheday

I really wish I had done much better in geology class at university to know exactly what I was looking at. Guess I’ll ok just have to study more as an ‘official’ adult! Isn’t it great when you have to stop to take a picture because something is too breathtaking? #ProutyPoint #MiddleSister

✨ “Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things—air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky—all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” -Cesare Pavese ✨ .

#kyrgyznature repost @albertdrosphotography Son-Kul is such a crazy place in Kyrgyzstan. It's a huge lake in a wide open area surrounded by mountains at an altitude of 3000m+. This series will hopefully give you an impression. The weather at this place is just insane! . 🇰🇬 . . .
