Fall Colors in Washington | Landscape Photography
Washington isn’t known for it’s fall colors but I hope to change that. Most people just don’t know where to look! The east coast tries to steal the show but there are spectacular colors in Washington as well. Here are my favorite spots to catch autumn colors for fall photography

Glorious day for reflections at Reflection Lake, Mt. Rainier
A Photographer’s Guide to Mount Rainier
The crown jewel of the Cascades. Mount Rainier towers over the surrounding mountains and stands tall even from hundreds of miles away. Just a couple hours from Seattle, Rainier (along with the Olympics) is usually on the bucket list of Washington visitors. Rainier is my most visited place in Washington

Zion National Park | Winter Trip Report
Many people flock to the national parks during the summer months. Zion and Bryce Canyon National Park are so popular in the summer months that hundreds of shuttles run daily to ferry people around the main areas of the parks. However, the perfect time to visit Zion and Bryce Canyon

Backpacking, Sunshine, and New Gear in the North Cascades
Summer is always a great time for exploration and adventure. Unfortunately, many people have the same idea and that leads to crowded destinations. I’ve been spending a lot of time near Mount Ranier but usually the least crowded places are the ones furthest away, so I decided to look further.

Exploring Mount Rainier in the Winter

Looking for a winter wonderland to explore? Look no further than Mount Rainier National Park! The winter months brings almost daily blankets of fresh snow and leaves the forests, meadows, rivers, and wonderful peaks of the park in prime condition for winter photography and activities. Just a short drive from Seattle, Mount Rainier in the winter is the perfect cold weather getaway (even the wet and cloudy weather of the PNW won’t spoil your day, promise!) Interested in exploring Mount

Washington isn’t known for it’s fall colors but I hope to change that. Most people just don’t know where to look! The east coast tries to steal the show but there are spectacular colors in Washington as well. Here are my favorite spots to catch autumn colors for fall photography in Washington.

A Photographer’s Guide to Mount Rainier

The crown jewel of the Cascades. Mount Rainier towers over the surrounding mountains and stands tall even from hundreds of miles away. Just a couple hours from Seattle, Rainier (along with the Olympics) is usually on the bucket list of Washington visitors. Rainier is my most visited place in Washington – I’ve been to Rainier over 100 times now but have plenty still to explore. However, I’ll try to share what I know and discuss the best locations for capturing

Johnston Ridge Milky Way

Capturing the Milky Way at Mt. Saint Helens

It’s been 39 years since the 1980 eruption at Mt. Saint Helens. There’s plenty to see and do at the national monument – my favorite being the milky way. The best times to see the Milky Way are earlier in the year when the sky gets dark enough early in the night.

Overnight At Easy Pass

Easy Pass is an “off the highway, up the pass” sort of hike on the east side of North Cascades National Park. The trail really shouldn’t be named “Easy” Pass as steep graded incline awaits you for most of the trail.

Like many cascade trails, it starts in a heavily wooded forest where

Backpacking, Sunshine, and New Gear in the North Cascades

Summer is always a great time for exploration and adventure. Unfortunately, many people have the same idea and that leads to crowded destinations. I’ve been spending a lot of time near Mount Ranier but usually the least crowded places are the ones furthest away, so I decided to look further. For this, I decided to take a 4 day trip to Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest which is north of North Cascades National Park and just south of Canada. The 542
