If your kids, or anyone for that matter, want to climb the core of an extinct #volcano, I would seriously consider a Beacon Rock climb. This is the gate section and the first few hundred yards are the scariest part. ⛰🌲 #wastateparks #beacon #hiking #aixoutdoors

If you ever get lost and see random tracks, it doesn’t mean it leads to safety. If it’s my tracks you got a 50/50 chance. Something to think about, trust in yourself.

“Now why’d you have to go and kill the Sandpiper? It wasn’t even bothering us!” Eagles have such personality and I want this to be turned into a comic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @getolympus OM-D EM1 Mark II @getolympus M.Zuiko 300mm f4 PRO

Some say going to the freezing coast isn’t much fun, I have got to disagree. Do you prefer the warm beaches of California or the cold coast in the PNW? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @getolympus OM-D EM1 Mark II @getolympus M.Zuiko 300mm f4 PRO

Reflection. I have edited and edited and edited this one over and over again. I have loved the idea of it ever since I [carefully] took it from the kayak in 2015, but I couldn't decide how to present it. Posted it a few times, then deleted it because I wasn't happy enough with it. I think I've settled. I'm leaving it as shot, not flipped. The reflected madrone almost looks like roots. Here's to finally being happy with it four years later! . . . . . . #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #artofvisuals #ig_shotz #ourpnw #optoutside #lifeonthewater #naturalwashington #pnwexplored #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #goatworthy #ourwild #earth_shotz #westbysouthwest #pnwparadise #folkgood #eclectic_shotz #roamanywhere #neverstopexploring #wastateparks #sanjuans #islandlife #sanjuanislands #sunsetmag #eastsound #orcasisland #madrone #architecture #artofvisuals #artsyheaven

Captured this young tree growing up, actually nearby to an 800+ year old tree.
