This week has been on the chilly side, bringing frost and new snow to the Cascade Mountains. My thoughts turned to our Cascade Pikas and I've pictured them curled up in their dens with their larder in tow, nibbling on stolen greens in the middle of a snow storm. Photographed at Heather Lake near Granite Falls, WA. . . . #washington #explorewashington #washingtonstate #pnw #explorewashingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #explorepnw #pnwwildlife #washingtonwildlife #washingtontrails #cascadepikawatch #pikasofinstagram #cascaderange #mammalsofinstagram #mammalphotography #cascades #cascademountains #heatherlaketrail #heatherlake #srnnaturephotography #alpinewildlife #alpinelake #pacificnorthwestwildlife #granitefallswashington #granitefallswa #granitefalls #northamericanpika #pika #northcascades #giffordpinchotnationalforest

sending_mediocre_vibes. The holidays are slipping away from me this year. Maybe it’s because I

The holidays are slipping away from me this year. Maybe it’s because I work in the restaurant industry or perhaps I’ve been too busy looking to the future and have been forgetting to be present. I find myself particularly prone to this flaw. Even when I’m hiking, I’m thinking about getting to the top and after that I’m thinking about what I’m going to eat when I get home. I always need to remind myself to slow my thoughts down. So, stop . . . stop thinking about what you’re going to do with your day or even the next ten minutes. Wherever you are when you’re reading this, take a look around and find one thing about your surroundings that makes you happy and take it in, really take it in. • • • • • • #naturephotography #thegreatoutdoors #getoutside #optoutside #bepresent #blueskies #scenic #views #explorepnw #washingtonstate #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #amaturephotography #mtsthelens #giffordpinchotnationalforest #adventure #explorewashington #landscapephotography #washingtonphotographer

Benz has help us appreciate nature a bit more. He is always eager to explore more and more. Sometimes we have to slow him down because if we don't he never stop. The only time of the year we have noticed that is a bit too much for him is summer. If the temperatures are more than 75° he is very uncomfortable and could overheat While he is having a blast enjoying the trail the rest of the year and now much more. We cant wait to go snowshoeing. Does your pup motivate you to do something? . . . . #benzthegsd #vivelavida #wetwednesday #waterfall #waterfallwednesday #creatingmemorieswithmydog #naturephotography #pnwgsdpack #workingdog #puppiesofinstagram #k5pets #myacana #dogsthatexplore #k5fall #nationalpark #giffordpinchotnationalforest #embraceyourpets #vcapets #hikingwithdogs #staywild #sardog #perrosdeinstagram #perrosviajeros #adventuredog #travel #traveldog #nationaforest #germanshepherd #gsd

Matt taking in an epic view! How many peaks do you see? Silver Star was our first snow covered hike of the winter season. The wind was mighty and gusting up to 40mph that hike. Cheers to more snow trecking this season. #mountsthelens #mtsthelens #mountrainier #mtrainier #mountadams #mtadams #washingtontrails #hikingadventures #giffordpinchotnationalforest #waexplored

It was a tree hunting, hot cocoa drinking, perfect kind of day.🎄 . I can’t help but notice in this picture I’ve got a hat, gloves and winter coat and my husband is in a tee shirt and shorts. I guess opposites do attract 🤷🏻‍♀️😘

Spirit Lake and Mt Adams⠀ ⠀ 24 years in Portland, and this is the first time I’ve seen Spirit Lake. It was incredibly interesting and beautiful. The field of logs floating on the lake has me especially intrigued. I’ll be making my way to the lake as soon as the roads are open again! Or as close as I can get.....⠀ Oh yeah, say hi to Mt Adams!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #aerialphotography #oregonexplored #theoregonian #pnwisbeautiful #outinoregon #pnwonderland #traveloregon #mtsthelens #mtadams #spiritlake #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #rv12 #aerial #airplanesarefun #winteriscoming #sonyalpha #highinthesky⠀ #upperleftliving #westcoastlife #giffordpinchotnationalforest #northwestisbest #bestofwashington
