I was today years old when I discovered the pure & simple joy of swinging in a hammock & reading... but this definitely needs to be a habit 🌤 . . 📚 I’m almost finished with Thru-Hiking Will Break Your Heart. You can feel every ache, every long & lonesome mile, taste every bit of scarfed down food, wince with every injury... it’s like you’re right on the journey with her. When I can’t actually be on the trail, this makes me feel like I am . . . . . . #hammock #washingtonexplored #outsidemagazine #choosemountains #mountaingirls #modernhiker #optoutside #travel #hiketheglobe #womenwhohike #wildernessculture #bestofthenorthwest #adventureculture #outdoorwomen #uppetleftusa #in2nature #girlswhohike #wanderwashington #wilderness #wanderlusters #amongthewild #washingtonstate #exploremore #washingtonhikersandclimbers #alifealive #pnw #adventure

🌲Benham Falls🌲 I had an awesome time in Sunriver this past weekend. Kiki and I hiked Benham Falls, an easy and short, but beautiful hike along the Deschutes River. It’s only a 15 minute drive from the Sunriver Resort and great for dogs, children, and even biking! The hike to Benham Falls is a half mile from the parking lot but you can make it a longer hike and go all the way to Dillon Falls. S/o to @mattcreagan for pics of me and Kiki

This past weekend we went on amazing trip to Washington!! This mini vacation might just be the best trip I’ve ever been on. We stayed in the quintessential German town of Leavenworth. Hiked the mountains nearby, which some call the “Swiss Alps of America”. And I got to see one of favorite bands at the @the_gorge_amphitheatre. @spoontheband you did not disappoint! Can we make this trip an annual occasion?? ☺️ maybe backpacking these alps next time???

One of the things about living in the NorthWest is how much daylight there is in the Summer. It’s not Alaska Summer but it's long. So I end up scouting late. This is last nights sunset at About 9:25p and I was still well over an hour from home. Thanks for looking and following. #oregonsunset #sunsetoregon #dougonlocation #1859magazine #1859oregon #filmoregon #oregonlocationscout #oregonlocationmanager #locationscout #locationmanager #locationscouting #filmoregon #filmproduction #preproduction #traveloregon #bestoforegon #bestofthenorthwest #explororegon #oregonoutdoors

Idahoans do the impossible. They took some of the most unforgiving land in the country and tamed it by sheer will and grit. Every bottle of 44 North is a tribute to this unbeatable spirit. . . #idahovodka #rockymountainvodka #huckleberry #idahoproduct #idahopotatovodka #potatovodka #Idaho #Distillery #HuckleberryVodka #NectarineVodka #idahospirits #idahome #rainiercherryvodka #bestofthenorthwest #pacificnorthwest #farmtobottle #idahopotatoes #idavore #grit #perseverance #americaningenuity

Just another beautiful morning in the backcountry... . I was really disappointed to have hiked over 15 miles one way in to this lake in the Glacier Peak Wilderness to find someone having a campfire and camping in an undesignated spot. Signs are all over at the lake telling people to camp down from the lake at the designated camp, but this particular group of people decided to camp right in the lake basin and have a fire, which was also against the rules and well signed saying so. . This marks my third backpacking trip in a row where people are breaking some sort of rule. Whether it be having a fire, camping on the edge of the lake, or camping in a restoration area, it really disappoints me. And when you tell people that they’re breaking the rules, their answer is that they “didn’t know” and won’t do it next time. . At what point is that answer not good enough? I wish we would pay more rangers to go into the backcountry, because I am positive that we would make money from all the tickets we could write. . What do you guys think? I usually stay out of this conversation because often times it’s based on speculation of what someone is doing in a photo, but when you clearly see someone doing something that’s clearly signed off, it’s different for me. ——————————————— Interested in purchasing this print, or learning how I process my images?
