My parents might be more badass than yours - last weekend while I was in NY for a bridal shower with my mom - my dad climbed St Helens. This weekend while I’m off rock climbing in the North Cascades - both of my parents will be climbing to Camp Muir! Then the first week in June we’ll all climb St Helens together! So proud of these two! 🏔💪 #sthelens #winterwonderland #rainier #wanderlust #mountainlife #mountainmagic #pnwlife #mountsthelens #volcano #optoutside #choosemountains #pacificnorthwest #pnwwilderness #washingtonexplored #travelstoke #climbmountains #climbthatmountain #getoutside #explorewashington #upperleftusa #exploremore #mountaineers #wanderwashington #greatoutdoors #climbon #mountrainier #pnwonderland #family

So, it appears we have a place to live when we land in SD next month. There's been some low level anxiety these last couple weeks that just ratcheted up to a knot of nervous excitement in my gut. Holy shit, guys! We'll be unloading the UHaul a month from today. 😲 Also, here's a pretty trail we hiked last weekend. 🌿 . . . #getoutside #happylittletrees #happyhiker #natureismychurch #agirlandhertruck #MarTarPNWFarewellTour #pnw #pnwonderful #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #northwestisbest #cascadia #cascadiaexplored #pnwcollective #pnwisbeautiful #windriver #giffordpinchot #giffordpinchotnationalforest #carsonwa #washington #livewashington #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #happyhiker #giffordpinchotnationalforest #pnwisbeautiful #happylittletrees #pnw #washington #cascadiaexplored #pnwonderful #natureismychurch #pnwisbest #northwestisbest #carsonwa #cascadia #getoutside #martarpnwfarewelltour #upperleftusa #windriver #explorewashington #wanderwashington #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #giffordpinchot #livewashington #agirlandhertruck #washingtonexplored

Cattle Point lighthouse on San Juan Island was built in 1935, but a navigational lantern has been on watch here since 1888. Look for deer, eagles and marine mammals such as seals and sea lions from the shelter, picnic area and beach below. San Juan Island is a great weekend getaway and a respite from the fast pace of everyday life. #wa #northwest #pnw #pnwlife #pacificnorthwest #washington #travelingwithmj #visitsanjuanislands #washingtonstate #pnwisbest #northwestisbest #explorewashington #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #sanjuanislands #pnwcollective #livewashington #pnwonderland #washingtonexplored
I walked down memory lane chatting to one of my good college friends yesterday. Made me reflect back on my early-mid 20’s and how insecure I felt at times. Now a days, I am secure with who I am, and I feel the older I get the less shits I’m gonna give about what others think about me. Don’t get me wrong I’m still a people pleaser type, but I know my limits. Thanks for the real talk friend who has no Instagram and will remain unnamed lol.

Recently I attempted a trail that was on my stretch list - my I think I can do this but I'm a bit frightened and there's little information out there list. I hiked 4.5 of the 7 mile South Fork Hoh to Big Flat trail. 🌲 While it is one of the easier backcountry trails with a few short elevation changes, there are obstacles and loose footing, a couple of stream crossings and one creek crossing over cascading water. The trail starts out with a steep descent into second growth, and then enters old growth forest in the #onp #wilderness. The trees are massive and I even heard (I believe) a Northern Spotted Owl! I also saw a bear on the drive up, and only two pairs of hikers. 🦉 A very rewarding hike, but definitely a 5-spoon difficulty. I sure was sore! 😅 Located on ancestral lands of the Hoh and Quinault people.

The Kestner Homestead paints a picture of early life in the Quinault Valley. 🌲 The abundance of natural resources attracted settlers from across the PNW during the late 1800s. Pay a visit to this legendary homestead on the north shore of Lake Quinault this holiday weekend! #DiscoverGraysHarbor 📸: @kelseynorvell #kestnerhomestead #pnw #evergreenstate #explore #olympicnationalpark #discovergraysharbor #graysharborcounty #washingtonstate #graysharbor #olympicpeninsula #memorialdayweekend #lakequinault #westernwashington #explorewashington #westernwa #greatergraysharbor #quinault #pnwonderland #washingtonexplored
