My favorite capture from the last week. I shot this earlier today as I strayed from the main highway and decided to hike up to a small hill to get a good vantage point of Shasta. I was so excited to get this image into Lightroom on my laptop, that I stopped at a coffee shop in Bend, Oregon just to upload it. And wow! Lenticular clouds just shrouding the top of the peak. I loved how the morning light was getting filtered through the clouds so instead of a harsh light, it became a much softer, warm light hitting the north face of Shasta. Wow Jesus!😍 Anyways, I suppose I should get back on the road. 7 more hours to go till I’m back home in the beautiful Eastern Washington🌲 // at Summit of Mt Shasta

This sunset was so cold, we all ran back to the car when it was over, but it was worth the frozen fingers for this. at Cannon Beach, Oregon

This beach is a photographers dream, even on a dreary day (which is more likely than not what you’re going to get). Took another look through the archives and really liked the simplistic nature of this shot, as well as the crisis crossing waves in the background! —————————————————————— Interested in purchasing a print?

Don’t be scared to be yourself. Even when people tell you that you shouldn’t. Even if people point and laugh or give you weird looks. You weren’t born from a mold. You weren’t made to fit a mold. You break that mold. And don’t forget to smile while you do it. at Oregon

(PCT WA Aug 19) The trail up to Cutthroat Pass was pretty special today. Not only was I encouraged by the continuation of my trek, but more than any other day, I felt like I was literally climbing up to touch the sky. The combination of mostly blue skies and sharply pointed peaks made that notion seem almost possible as the trail snaked up to nearly 7,000 feet. The wind was calm, and, along with the sound of an occasional bird, my soundtrack was the rhythmic crunch of the trail underfoot. The stillness of my environment was thought-provoking today. I felt as if everything around me was on pause just long enough for me to walk through, but no more. 🏕 • • • • • #explorewashington #washingtonexplored #pnw #cascadia #cascadiaexplored #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #hiking #hikingculture #thegreatoutdoors #washington #upperleftusa #thegreatpnw #pacificnw #getoutside #hikewashington #pnwcollective #pnwdiscovered #pct #pacificcresttrail

Spring is pretty much here and a beach hike was needed. Made it to the top of the peak in this image and it was a thigh killer with a spectacular view. Didn't quite get the sunset I was hoping for but you work with what you can get. I opted for a longer exposure with this one.

“Bowl” This cape is no joke and dangerous if the tide is too high. Luckily it was low enough for me to safely capture this epic moment! The Oregon Coast is a truly magical place❤️ at Cape Kiwanda Beach

Why You Love Oregon: Cami's Story ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was born in Oregon, and my appreciation for it goes as far back as I can remember. My grandparents would take me to Cultus Lake near Bend for two weeks every summer. We would go with our whole big Dutch and Indonesian family and get three sites next to each other by the lake. My grandfather, Opa, would go fishing in the morning. My grandmother, Oma, would set up a big kitchen and she and her sister would cook amazing food for all of us. That left me free to lay on the pebble beach, go hiking, and swim in the lake. My uncle would bring his boat for water skiing, which I was terrible at! But my favorite thing was looking at the stars at night. So many stars! Opa told me once that the reason they chose Oregon to move to after moving from Indonesia to The Netherlands was that Oregon was the place that had everything - ocean beaches, forests, lakes, rivers, mountains, and even deserts - and he was right. I’m grateful that they chose Oregon as their home and that it will always be mine now too. And now i pass that love down to my daughter, who just finished kindergarten at Trackers Forest School! We go hiking and she tells me about all the edible and medicinal plants, identifies different bird species, and sometimes builds little shelters for the forest animals. She’s a budding naturalist! And I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to give her that experience. We love Oregon!!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Each week, we share stories about how you first fell in love with Oregon, and what you love most about our beautiful state.

Farewell Winter. We have had our struggles in the past but this time around, we found an amazing groove together. A huge thank you for bringing what felt like a proper winter to the Issaquah Alps. So many mornings of absolute bliss gliding through dark green forests blanketed in white. Added bonus, my legs have never been stronger after breaking so much trail in February. You inspired and motivated me for over a thousand miles and nearly 300k of gain. I think it is safe to say, we have found our mojo together.

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. Where do you go to find your peace? . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #mountains #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer

The beaches in Washington are unlike any I’ve ever seen! With steep cliffs dropping off to sandy beaches filled with driftwood and decorated with numerous haystacks, it’s quite a sight to see. If you ever have the chance to visit WA, you must check out the beaches on the Olympic Peninsula ✌🏼 . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer #beautifuldestinations at La Push, Washington
