I crossed this large bridge above a rushing river yesterday, only to find myself desperately gripping the edge halfway through. Certain types of bridges send my brain into a tizzy. The result of a disconnect between the part of my brain that thinks that the bridge should not be moving and my body that knows it certainly is. ⁣ .⁣ ⁣It has nothing to do with fear--at least conscious fear anyway. I love bridges on a theoretical level and if they are super bouncy, enough so that my eyes register it as moving, my body loves them too. I just got a double serving of evolutionary panic when things feel not quite right. ⁣ .⁣ Knowing full well that my body will rebel, and I will look ridiculous inching my way over a massive, stable bridge, I just applied for a permit that involves crossing three suspension bridges. 🤷‍♀️⁣ .⁣ Anyone else's brain like to do an evolutionary panic overdrive for completely unnecessary things? ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #optoutside #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #liveoutdoors #wonderful_places #keepitwild #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #mtnchicks #thegreatoutdoors #natureaddict #likeamountaingirl #pnwonderland #hikingadventures #exploremore #PNWdiscovered #PNW #WanderWashington #washingtonexplored #thehikemovement #womenwhohike #thegreatoutdoors#forceofnature #adventureculture #throughthepines #optoutside #adventurethatislife #wearethewild #wildernessculture #every2pines

↠ by @nathanielwise Summer, 2017. One of the most transformative seasons of my life. The summer I fell in love with backpacking. The summer I realized that outdoor photography was a feasible pursuit. Will always remember these trips, learning the ins and outs of it all. Huffing and puffing, swatting mosquitoes and cooking my macaroni and cheese in the most beautiful of places. Good times. Been meaning to add this one as a print for quite a while now, finally got around to it today. Print sale ends Sunday, check my story highlight for details 🏔🙏🏻 - ↠ Chosen by @dennisfrerichs_ - ↠ Make sure to show some love to the creators😎 - ↠ And tag your post #escapeandwonder . . . . . #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #pnwlove #pnwroamers #weroamabroad #roamearth #earthvisuals #themoderndayexplorer #modernwild #lostfam #wilderness_culture #campeveryday #roam247 #roamnation #wekeepmoments #discovernature #neverseenbefore #theoutdoorfolk #folksouls #awesome_earth #outside_project #mountainlove #vibesofvisuals #campingcollective #artofvisuals #igpassport

I was watching this male Hooded Merganser last night and he was looking pretty happy, then his wife or girlfriend showed up and his head drooped quite a bit and his expression changed while he tried to scoot away. Not sure what that's all about but I hope they've kissed and made up. Or whatever ducks do. #hoodedmerganser #merganser #ducks #couple #quarrel #birds_private #lovestory #wildlifephotography #reflection #snoqualmie #king5 #k5spring #livewashington #pnw #washingtonexplored #upperleftusa #pnwoutdoors #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #getoutside #northwest #northwestisbest #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #bestofnorthwest

Of all the American cities I have seen so far, Washington D.C. is my favourite. Such captivating art, architecture, history and class.

↟ ᴄʜɪʟʟᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴏɴᴇ | Each day, as it grows warmer, I become more and more excited for the days of summer that are to come. Without the sun and especially at night, it’s still quite cold and there’s been a bitter breeze today, but it’s clear that winter is over. —— #exploremore #naturephotography #staywild #getoutside #optoutside #welivetoexplore #canon #teamcanon #canonrebel #exploremore #landscapephotography #landscape #wanderlust #wander #pnwonderland #optoutside #theoutbound #folkgreen #pnw #explorewashington #wanderwashington #washingtonstate #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #roamtheplanet

“There is a grandeur in winter, stern and wild it may be, but a grandeur which speaks to the soul.” - C.J. Petersen 🌲 ▪ Had to alter our hiking plans for today due to the avalanche risk, seemed every trail had high risk areas to avoid. We were hoping to get to Reflection Lake but that didn't happen, oh well it was a pretty day all the same! ❄ . . .

Last year during a wedding weekend in August a big group of friends and family did a hike to falls creek fall. I wasnt too hyped on shooting, but more into chilling in the woods with some cool cats and enjoying nature. Especially in a beautiful place like the the pacific northwest with a gang of people from all over. But of course I scrambled a hillside to a lower angle on the water.

River City Equinox I had the opportunity to Visit Spokane for a few days last week. My wife attended a conference in the Conference Center on the river and we stayed across the street. There was a nice sky bridge connecting the two buildings. Also, the spring equinox occurred while we were there, meaning the rising sun shone directly down Spokane Falls Blvd. . . . . .

I love places like this, they provide the perfect escape from the chaos of the world. When my head and my heart get overwhelmed I always find that walking through forests and admiring the beauty of mountains puts our lives into perspectives. Nothing is too big to overcome and in reality our problems can all be solved as long as we have the courage to face them.
