Tree Tuesday with a side of Mt. Hood sunrise glow! Last Monday, I finally got the chance to climb Mt. St. Helens. We left the trailhead at 4:30am and by the time we ascended above the tree line, this beautiful scene presented itself. I only brought my 24-70mm which didn’t provide nearly as much range as I would have liked, but with 45 megapixels, I was able to significantly crop the image and still have a sharp picture left over. ————————————————————— Shot Info: Nikon Z7 with 24-70mm NIKKOR f/4 Lens, ISO 800, 70mm, f/6.3, 1/50s, handheld, cropped significantly. Interested in purchasing one of my prints? You can find prints on my website - link in bio. ⁣ ————————————————————— #wildernesstones #withmytamron #jaw_dropping_shots #earthfocus #cascadiaexplored #pnwparadise #visualsofearth #northwestcreatives #ig_color #pnwvisuals #jj_oregon #oregonexplored #pnwdiscovered #capturelandscapes #pnwisbeautiful #naturebrilliance #master_shots #upperleftusa #earthvisuals #nature_seekers #usinterior #ig_bliss #global_hotshotz #pnwonderland #naturerad #theoutbound #pnw

Have you ever wished for ONE bag that would hold your things + your pups things? A few months ago we received a 14L day pack hand designed by a woman in Colorado to meet every dog owners need. We brought it on our recent trip to Oregon and hit the trails with it to test it out and let me tell you-this pack was made for the active lifestyle dog owner. Today the @muttruk Phoenix 14 launched on Kickstarter 🥳🥳🥳 There are earlybird specials for the first 48 hours! Click the link in my bio to be taken to the Kickstarter page 🥰 • • • Some key things of why I love this amazing pack: Two large waist pouches with removable, washable liners Side pockets that actually hold a full size water bottle Outside bunjee can be used for extra storage Built in whistle on straps Multiple zip pockets on straps to hold cell phone, keys, etc Hands free carabiner clip on waist Fits myself + my 6’ tall hubby comfortably

This year, I really want to take the time to experience all that our beautiful area has to offer! There are so many trails, peaks, lakes, views and hidden gems around here. What’s the point in living in such a beautiful place if we don’t take the time to truly experience and appreciate it? #pnw #exploretocreate #artofvisuals #pnwcollective #stayandwander #getoutstayout #wildernessculture #thatpnwlifestyle #thatpnwlife #visualsoflife #modernoutdoors #passionpassport #pnwlife #depthobsessed #vsco #pnwdiscovered #nature #natural #getout #sunset #view #sharechilliwack #tokina @tokina_global @tokinausa @nikoncanada #nikon #nikond750 @thefraservalley #hdr #highdynamicrange #adventure #discoverbc

Did you know this unincorporated city has less than 250 people? Yet Otter Rock has been known as one of the best beginner surf spots in the us and it’s located here along the Oregon Coast! I visited Devils Punch Bowl at Otter Rock and I never saw so many people before, who were out on their boards, in the ocean (I know, you’re thinking I probably should travel more - and you’re so right!). But it was pure magic out there seeing people coast the waves, working on their craft, learning a new skill, experiencing and growing themselves. We were all enjoying this magnificent ocean that we have, which so many of us call home, yet only a small portion ever experience. Really is something.

Been quite the hiatus from posting on here. Partially because what was worth sharing didn’t involve a camera, but I also just needed to give my life some attention in other areas. It’s important to take care of ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally - and I was struggling with that. It’s all gravy though, because the struggle serves as a reminder that we’re never done learning. Plus, with a little support from those around us and taking time to learn about and care for ourselves, we can come back stronger and shine brighter than before. Enough of this big word salad though, just remember it’s rad to take care of yourself. You know what you need to do. You got this! Anyways, I’m going to get back to sharing moments of magic with you all if that’s coo. Now if I can just figure out how to dip this cookie I’m eating into that glass of Milky Way up there... Any tips? #keepitwilder

I'm loving the weather in Washington! While it's still been rainy on some days, my days off have been sunny, but cool. I'm not sure that I'll be extending here like I thought, so I need to get as many hikes in as I can. . . I'm not sure where I'm heading next, it's too soon, but here is a list of hikes I've done so far that I highly recommend! If I can do it, you definitely can do it. One step at a time-- on some trails grandma's were passing me... I'm just a slow hiker... But I always make it to the top! . . If you have any recommendations, drop them below! . . Rattlesnake Ridge, Lake Twenty-two, Heather Lake, Annette Lake, Bridal Veil Falls, Little Si, Big Si, The Big Four Ice Caves, Franklin Falls, Deception Pass, Diablo Lake Vista Point, Mt. Rainier National Park, Crystal Mountain, Lake Serene, Heybrook Lookout, Sol Duc Falls . . . . . . #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwcollective #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored #livewashington #northwestcreatives #pacificnorthwest #northwestisbest #pnwlife #thenwadventure #femaletravelblogger #traveloregon #rei1440project #washingtontrails #pnwdiscovered #greatnorthcollective #wanderwashington #theoutbound #explorebc #optoutside #washingtonexplored #bridalveilfalls #seattle #staypnw #pdx #vancityhype #washington

These mountains are great at making you feel small. From how far you can hear your echo bounce to the giant paw prints in the snow, ever detail reminds you of how wild they still are. • • • • #optoutside #liveyouradventure #forceofnature #traveltheworld #lesscomfortmorelife #exploremore #pnwroamers  #freshairandfreedom #greatoutdoors #discoverearth #feedyouradventure #PNWdiscovered #imnotlostimexploring  #adventureculture #liveoutdoors #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #keepitwild #alpingirls #youroregon #nrthwst #oregonexplored

The American woods have been unnerving people for 300 years. The inestimably priggish and tiresome Henry David Thoreau thought nature was splendid, splendid indeed, so long as he could stroll to town for cakes and barley wine, but when he experienced real wilderness, on a vist to Katahdin in 1846, he was unnerved to the cored. This wasn't the tame world of overgrown orchards and sun dappled paths that passed for wilderness in suburban Concord, Massachusetts, but a forbiggind, oppressive, primeval country that was "grim and wild . . .savage and dreary," fit only for "men nearer of kin to the rocks and wild animals than we." The experience left him, in the words of one biographer, "near hysterical • • • • • #outdoors #sunny #tree #climbing #traveler #photooftheday #bestoforegon #mountainclimbing #landscapes #globetrotter #moss #neverstop #backpacking #arkansas #14ers #sunrise #bushcraft #skyporn #pnwdiscovered #pnwwonderland #northwestisbest #view #glacier #fly #earthporn #inmyelement #taiwan #exploregon #coldcamping #wideangle

Deep Forest 🌲’ • There’s something so serene about the sound of a river flowing through the woods. Had to stop at this one and just sit down and listen. The conditions were somewhat dark so I decided to try a long exposure and I’m happy with the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy. • 📍Goldstream Provincial Park, BC 🌲

It's amazing to watch little ones grow up right in front of my camera. I've been shooting sweet Avery since she was in her mama's belly. I truly love mini sessions and loved shooting this lovely family again!

Bit of a mission getting to this spot, but in the end it was all worth it. Success is no accident. Its hard work, perseverance, sacrifice and marking mistakes and learning from them. More importantly its the love for what you do.

It’s usually #adventuretuesday but my body told me to rest, the weather is gloomy and the fur babies are snuggled up close. Enjoy this #trailshottuesday as I sit on my couch in slippers drinking a glass of wine 🍷. 🤘🏾 . . . On a side note: 2019 is the year I remind myself I hike for me,my mind, my body and my old lady eyes (for when the time comes I’m not on the trail anymore) and not worry about what the gram is gonna think of this tight shot. 🤷🏽‍♀️🏔✨🌼🌻🌞
