From my professional endeavors @kraken.marine.services: The Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race begins this morning! We'll be sailing vicariously through @svstaygold and you can too! Track S/V Stay Gold's progress and watch the race unfold: http://oregonoffshore.swiftsure.org/ In this photo, we were up the mast installing new spreader bars, and leaving a good luck message! We at KMS are proud to sponsor the race team of S/V Stay Gold, bringing our tooling and expertise to keep them ship shape. It has been exciting for us to help them realize their dream. Captain Brian, fair winds, and good luck!! #oregonoffshore #oregonoffshore2017 #krakenmarine @oregonoffshore #sailing #sailracing #sailboat #PNW

[Insert inspirational quote here] Somewhere near Mt Rainier, from a day spent playing in the mountains. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ β†Ÿβ €β € β†Ÿβ €β € β†Ÿβ €β € β†Ÿβ €β € β†Ÿβ €β € β†Ÿβ €β € #choosemountains #optoutside #wanderwashington #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #washingtonexplored #exploremore #PNW #Washington #MtRainier #Cascades #WashingtonCascades #snow

Study in Motion #1β € β € Winter snow blankets the sagebrush and tumbleweeds. In the cold high desert, hummingbirds emerge as the rising sun begins to warm the land. What do they eat? How do they survive? How do they have the energy to fuel such acrobatic displays of territorial defense?β € β†Ÿβ € β†Ÿβ € β†Ÿβ € β†Ÿβ € β†Ÿβ € β†Ÿβ € #Arizona #hummingbird #birdextreme #birdwatching #ornithology #flight #southwestisbest #wildlifephotography #wildlife at Williams, Arizona

Yup. 2017 is off to a good start. Good things happen when the right people come together; we create something greater than the sum of our individual parts. Let the mountains remind you of that, the antidote to all this political negativity... Keep venturing, creating, sharing. Put that energy into good things, whatever they are! β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ #choosemountains #optoutside #hikethatshit #elevatedliving #wanderwashington #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #washingtonexplored #exploremore #trailporn #viewfromthetrail #mountainpeopleunite #PNW #Washington #MtRainier #cascades #WashingtonCascades #MtRainierNationalPark #MountRainier #snowshoe #snowshoeing at Mount Rainier National Park

The Grand Canyon, shot on 35mm with a modified Diana F+ medium format camera. Last time I shot film was over a decade ago, roaming the streets between classes, learning the basics with my dad's old Nikon. This time I shot 3 rolls at the Grand Canyon, learning about my new camera and hoping for the best. Lots of stray light leaking through the case onto the film, and only a few shots turning out at all. But I'm super encouraged, and excited by the new possibilities. β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #GCNP #southrim #Arizona #hikethatshit #sprocket #sprockets #sprocketholes #lomography #35mm #film #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #bw #bnw #blackandwhitephotography

If I'm too busy to spend time doing what brings joy and levity to my life, then am I really prioritizing what is important? Such are the lessons the mountains can teach, to those who are quiet enough to hear them. Summit Lake, just above a rapidly-lowering snow line. Bearhead Mountain behind, and a cloud-shrouded Mt Rainier in the distance. β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ β†Ÿ #choosemountains #optoutside #hikethatshit #takemebackpacking #elevatedliving #lostandlovingit #wanderwashington #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #washingtonexplored #exploremore #trailporn #viewfromthetrail #mountainpeopleunite #bestmountainartists #PNW #Washington #MtRainier #cascades #WashingtonCascades at Summit Lake Trail

View from the southern rim of the Grand Canyon πŸ™ŒπŸΌ. I've been visiting National Parks with my parents my whole life. This year I asked my parents for one birthday gift: when I visit, take me camping. This is what they gave me. Truly an inspiring experience, backcountry camping in the Grand Canyon illustrates the transformative power of National Parks. Three days watching light and shadow play out on the canyon's contours, monsoon clouds and night lightning overhead, wildflowers growing over ancient ocean fossils embedded in the rocks---does the soul good. #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #southrim #Arizona #hikethatshit

πŸ‘πŸΌ Grand Canyon. Fresh off the trail from a weekend of isolated Grand Canyon rim camping. Totally in love with desert landscape 😎. See the live feed for clips from the trail, and photos to follow... #hikethatshit #southwest #Arizona #desert

Psychedelic mountain meteor hunter selfie. There ain't no weather like space weather πŸŒŸπŸ’«βœ¨β˜„πŸŒŸ This shot is a single long exposure. I popped up in front of the camera and flashed myself with red headlamp light to produce this translucent overlay-looking effect. #astrophotography #perseids #optoutside #PNW #takemebackpacking #lostandlovingit #choosemountains

Another weekend tapped in to the #campvibes. Did a little night hiking, saw some brilliant shooting stars--a preview of the epic Perseid meteor shower set to peak tomorrow night! #optoutside #hikethatshit #tentlife

Wow. Lots of tumult in my life lately, experiencing the rapid opening of the next chapter of my life. Like surfing a wave which grows larger beneath me, I'm gliding on the swell with unexpected speed and adrenaline. While my life changes, the misty mountain landscape seems to remain eternal, silent. In this shot, evening rain clouds blow through the trees at the trailhead of a Cascade Mountains adventure. A wet night to earn a dry start on the trail at sunrise is a good plan. #choosemountains #optoutside #elevatedliving #takemebackpacking #lostandlovingit #PNW

Rockin' out at the river's edge. Aiming for the log, and proving play is what keeps us young & joyful. #ithrowrocks #mountrainiernps #choosemountains #optoutside at Mount Rainier National Park

Been having a blast lately, feeling like I’m living the charmed life. This from Rainier National Park, with clouds lifting over 4th of July weekend. It turns out national parks are great for forging new friendships. #choosemountains #optoutside #elevatedliving #mountrainiernps #HDR at Mount Rainier National Park

A little night paddle before hitting the sack. Thanks to @hilliwaw_ for tuning my exposure settings 😘, and to @orukayak for the endless back'yaking possibilities 😎. #highcountrypaddling #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #FortuneFavorsTheFold #takemebackpacking #lostandlovingit #choosemountains #wanderwashington #whatmakesyouwild #rei1440project #optoutside #kayak #Washingtonexplored #elevatedliving #PNW #goatworthy at Snow Lake Hike

Perfect conditions for a field test of my @orukayak this weekend. Five stars. Two thumbs up. Packed the kayak up into the mountains, over challenging terrain, and was well rewarded. And to think, up to now, my journey always ended at the water's edge. #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #RiseAndGrind #PaddleForAPorpoise #takemebackpacking #lostandlovingit #choosemountains #wanderwashington #whatmakesyouwild #rei1440project #optoutside #kayak #WashingtonState #Washington #Washingtonexplored #elevatedliving #PNW #goatworthy

Shorebirds and sailors alike enjoying the end of a summer day. This seen in Tacoma on an after work waterfront run. The south Puget Sound waterfront is a mix of parks, marinas, shipping, and industry. Tonight, sail boats take advantage of the evening breezes and sail past the queued cargo ships. Only had my phone's electronic zoom, but I had to capture the moment. I might have to start running with a DSLR πŸ˜… Photo by @_p38_ #optoutside #PNW #cityofTacoma #PugetSound #iphoneonly at Ruston Way Waterfront

Stellar weather on the Northwest Pacific coast. Today's location: #Kalaloch, #Washington. This area is home to a rare biome, temperate rainforest. With the consistently high precipitation levels are of the more well-known tropical rainforest, but located in latitudes far from the equator, these conditions only occur in about a half-dozen places across the globe. Just one of the reasons we keep camping here 😎 Photo by @_p38_ #OlympicPeninsula #wanderwashington #optoutside #Washingtonexplored #upperleftUSA #PNW #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered
