Northwest Washington is a magical place where the mountains, ocean, and rain forests come together to make a truly unforgettable experience. This trip included Olympic National Park, backpacking on the coast, and The North Cascades.
My winter of discontent.
It was a long cold painful winter. And Spring. And Summer. Filled with injuries, aches, and pains. Serious enough that I tried to chill out and take care of myself. With all this so called healing i didn’t get too far from home. Definitely didnt shoot very many photos. With the sad state of my portfolio I’ve decided to try an capture more every-day images. Most of these will probably just be taken on my phone, it’s always around when I need to take a picture.
If you live mindfully you will experience many beautiful moments.
Here’s the first. I don’t have a penchant for poetic titles so I’m calling this one “Fluffy Clouds”.
Who loves a road trip? I do! For years I’ve always said that I would love to see Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, and Glacier Nation Park and for years I’ve never pulled it off. This summer I realized that I have both a car and gas money so what was really stopping me at this point? Nothing, that’s what. So I called up my friend Jerry and and before we knew it we were driving across a lot (a heck of a lot) of plains heading toward Wyoming.
Being of Irish decent I can attest to waking up early in the morning feeling foggy and odd. This is typically the result of another proud Irish tradition of strong beer and shenanigans. I was backpacking in the Irish Wilderness when I awoke to this magnificent scene on the river. This was a beautiful sight and probably one of my favorite backpacking moments of all time.
