A splash of light illuminates the branches of a large California Redwood 🌲. . Each visit to this place is a different and memorable experience. I’m excited to hopefully make it down there at some point later this year. . . . . . #livewashington #redwoods #tree_magic #jj_california #cascadiaexplored #pnwdiscovered #yourshot #pdxnow #redwoodnationalpark #nikonusa #pnwonderland #nationalparkgeek #portlandnw #portlandoregon #traveloregon #iloveoregon #california #pdxavsquad #pnwisbeautiful #travelportland #redwood #hiking #tree_brilliance #nikon #d7200 #70200mm

Location: Palouse Falls, Washington Photographer: @neohumanity • The canyon at the falls is 377 feet deep, exposing a large cross-section of the Columbia River Basalt Group. These falls and the canyon downstream comprise an important feature of the channeled scablands created by the great Missoula Floods.

These PNW sunsets are amazing! We both grew up in Minnesota; watching the sunset over the Pacific has definitely been one of the simple things that makes life on the road so wonderful.

Had fun catching the Sunset at Rosario Beach between the storms last night! Hail and rain couldn’t keep us away from waiting for the #goldenhour but we left soon after so the nice park ranger could go home too! #sunset #rosariobeach #washington #deceptionpass #calmbeforethestorm #plantbasedfireman

(PCT WA Aug 4) After crossing the Bumping River and beginning the climb up to Dewey Lake, my body started to slow down. It was increasingly hot, my feet were swollen & both heels felt as if they had been ground to dust. My steps and pace became much more deliberate and forced. While passing Buck Lake (pictured) I began making an intentional effort to control my inner-dialogue. I felt like I really needed to. As I gained shelf after shelf of tiered mountain lakes, I attempted to live within very specific realms of thought. I endeavored to exist within my situation as it is, without assigning or attaching any additional meaning to it. At least for today, my imagination didn’t end up being my ruin. Exhausted, I rounded the corner to Dewey Lake just before 2pm. 🏕 • • • • • #explorewashington #washingtonexplored #pnw #cascadia #cascadiaexplored #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #hiking #hikingculture #thegreatoutdoors #washington #upperleftusa #thegreatpnw #pacificnw #getoutside #hikewashington #pnwcollective #pnwdiscovered #pct #pacificcresttrail

🏔🌲🐾 stalking down our next adventure 🐾🌲🏔 . . This shot would’ve turned out so nice if only I had a slightly narrower aperture! My next goal is to really practice my action photography some more. I had so much fun trying to capture shots of Koda having fun hunting in the tall grass . . Does anyone else love watching their dog hunt? I love watching Koda slink and stalk before finally pouncing on whatever it is! I didn’t see him catch anything this time but he sure was enjoying himself. . . Happy #FRIYAY 🙌 we made it through another week so that’s something to celebrate... with a well deserved nap! . . Do you have anything planned this weekend? We are going to be meeting up with our on-leash pack walk friends that we haven’t seen in forever! We’ll probably head off somewhere fun to go explore at some point but nothing planned as of yet! . . #kodabear #kodathekarelian #thekareliantails #dogsoffb #dogtographer #hairofthedogblog #dogsofinstagram #ourcanadiandogs #k9sofcanada #canadiandogs #pnwonderland #pnwonderdogs #pnwdogs #pnwhiking #pnwexplorations #pnwdiscovered #pnwadventures #dogphotography #adventuredogsofficial #adventuredognation #dogsonadventures #hikingadventures #hikingwithdogs #hikingdogsofinstagram #hikingdogsofinsta #dogsthathike #dogsthatexplore #bestwoof #weeklyfluff

Did you know Oregon used to be at the bottom of the Pacific ocean? At least, most of it was. You can see the 26-million-year-old limestone that made up the ocean floor in the bottom left corner of this photo! The limestone erodes faster than it's 15-million-year-old volcanic basalt "topping", creating a pathway behind the waterfall you can walk through as you explore it's amphitheatre-like cliffs! We got absolutely soaked but it was a rush being underneath a falling river! The same event that covered this limestone was so widespread that it completely rerouted the ancient Columbia River into its current path. It was fast too. Covering a distance of 310 miles from its source in about a week. Eventually 63,000 square miles of fresh basalt had been laid down in the PNW, and has been named the Columbia River Basalt Group. It covers all of the Southeast quadrant of Washington, into Idaho, and through all of Northern Oregon to the coast. This basalt is clearly exposed in places like the Columbia River Gorge, stripped by the Lake Missoula floods I mentioned in prev posts! 🌋🌋🌋 The eruption emptied out so much material that its massive and now emptied chamber collapsed, creating a "heart-shaped" plain extending from Maupin/The Dalles in Oregon all the way up to Spokane in Washington. This plain is now called the Columbia Plateau or Columbia Basin. 💦💦💦 I spent the day last weekend exploring a popular natural attraction I'd had yet to explore until now! It was such a nice relaxing day with my partner @julia.kittystyle and our good friend @gabzilla96. I hope to come back here when the snow turns to flowers! 🌸🌸🌸 This is Silver Falls State Park. While it's the biggest state park in Oregon, you can still hike around the whole thing in an afternoon and a leisurely pace. Check it off your list this spring! And don't forget to check out their historic lodge/cafe! 🏚️☕☕ #silverfalls #silverfallsstatepark #exploregon #traveloregon #pnwdiscovered #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #getoutside #optoutside

Is it snow or snowdrops' shimmer whitens thus the bladed grass, with a faint aërial glimmer, spring or winter, which did pass? For the sky is dim and tender with an evanescent light, and the fading fields are white, white with snow or snowdrops, under the fair firstling stars of night. . Little robin, softly, cheerly piping on yon wintry bough, why have all the fields that pearly iridescence, knowest thou? Did old winter, grim and hoary, aim a parting dart at spring as she fled on azure wing, or did she with rainbow glory in his face her snowdrops fling? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #artofvisuals #lonelyplanet #exploremore #travelstoke #passionpassport #dametraveller #ourplanetdaily #theoutbound #folkscenery #wildernesstones #houseoftones #createcommune #bpmag #way2ill #thecreatorclass #visualsofearth #travelgram #worlderlust #travelandlife #beautifuldestinations #landscapephotography #cntraveler #streetdreamsmag #ig_shotz_le #worldclasslandscapephotographers #camera #fotograf #traveloregon #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered
