Big thanks @mtshoppdx for the gear but also for taking the time to tell these newbs how to ski at Crater Lake. Yet another reason to support local ski/climbing shops ⛷

I don't typically feature drone shots, but this one in particular caught my eye. Happy to feature a pretty positive guy Ethan and his beautiful image here.

I have a very loud voice. I’ve used it to captivate the attention of groups of students, to call out for friends in a crowd, and especially to advocate and stand up for people and say what needs to be said with power and authority. * Sometimes it embarrasses me. Like when I get a little tipsy and start loudly espousing ideas that no one wants to hear, or (inevitably) above the bolt on lead when I throw a raging royal tantrum that echoes off the walls around me reverberating my fear and frustration. * Recently my therapist asked me what it would look like if I stood up for myself to myself the way I do against external oppressors. I can be so mean to myself - if someone else told me I wasn’t good enough or strong enough or that everyone thinks I’m fake I’d rage and yell and take them down. But when I say it to myself I just crumple. * So I’m going to try using my voice against my inner critic. I’m going to try being aggressively supportive of myself against myself. It’s ok to get terrified above the bolt on a chossy 5.8. It’s ok if I didn’t climb my hardest. I’m not out here for anyone except me. So there, me.

Let all problems run off of your body like water. The leading line of the water flowing, just draws you to the top, & start of the waterfall. Peaceful, you can hear it. Photo by @lifeonclaude9 __ If you roam the P.N.W tag @pnwroamers #pnwroamers to be featured!

Somethings are beyond our control and all we can do is make the most of the situation under foot. This tree was unlucky enough to grow on a rock above the salty seas. Starved for nutrients, and always thirsty, the roots plumbed the depths of the cracks seeking sustenance. It built a home on this cliff. Until one day the rock broke, pried apart by the growing roots, and fell into the sea. Once again the tree is beset with challenges, and once again it refuses to surrender. The tree outlived the rock it grew on, half its roots now hang dry, but the other half struggle on, growing deeper, growing stronger, because there is no other option. The tree lives on.

Happy #waterfallwednesday everyone! That's Watson Falls back in the distance - - with the snowmelt from warm temperatures a couple weeks back, that thing was gushing! I tried to get some good shots up closer but the light was harsh and my lens was covered in mist from the thundering falls in just a second or two after uncovering it! So this view was much more relaxing to capture!! 😅 . . #Oregon #cascades #mountains #stream #flowing #water #waterfall #woods #forest #moss #mossy #rocks #landscape #photography #green #GreenTherapy #spring #springtime #pnw #pnwonderland #exploreoregon #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #getoutside #hike #findyouradventure #nature #naturelovers

I grew up near the coast. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that before. In fact, I grew up about a half hour drive from this very spot. That said, I’d never experienced sunset with this view until this evening. _______________________________ @sonyalpha A7riii @sony GM 24-70mm f/2.8 @formatthitech Firecrest circular Polarizer @mefoto Carbon Globetrotter Tripod • • • • • • #bealpha #wayfarecollective #oregoncoast #skyline #dramaticsky #watchthisinstagood #agameoftones #bluehour #sunset #coast #oregon #oregonexplored #northwestisbest #cascadiaexplored #beach #beachsuset #firesky #sonyalpha #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #portlandnw #pdx #traveloregon #sunrisesunset

“Spared” - in this image all you see is the beautiful waterfall surrounded in lush green Spring growth. You wouldn’t have any idea how close the fire came. Walking up to the middle tier, you see that fire swept through, leaving many trees partially burned and even a charred log in the pool above the bridge. I’m grateful for what has been spared, while sad for what many will never have the chance to see. . . . . #waterfallwednesday #waterfall #waterfalls #oregon #oregonexplored #oregondiscovered #discoveroregon #columbiarivergorge #columbiarivergorgeous #pnw #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #cascadia #outinoregon #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #pnwescapes #pnwcrew #springinoregon

The sun was trying to make my life difficult for this one. It insisted on shining directly on the splash area, making it very difficult to get the proper exposure. Occasionally it would cooperate and a shadow would fall over the scene. I caught this exposure during a transition from sun to shade. One of the greatest tools you can have in photography is patience. ⏳

Artificial tranquility 💦 . . . The most beautiful law courts in the heart of Vancouver. I have walked past this building thousands of times and finally for the first time wandered around. It’s like a nursery in the most beautiful greenhouse. The architecture is absolutely stunning and so worth to see! . . . #vancouverlawcourts #vancouverisawesome #vancity #explorebc #beautifulbc #beautifuldestinations #pnw #dailyhivevan #veryvancouver #vancityfeature #604now #pnwonderland #vancitybuzz #cascadiaexplored #optoutside #robsonsquare #citygarden #arthurerickson #architecture #discovervancouver #landscape_captures #justgoshoot #waterfall #waterfallwednesday

Columbine flower, extremely close and incredibly vivid. One of my favorites in the garden which seems to be true for the deer as well. Crap! My strategy? Just keep adding more seeds and overwhelm the thieves. Victory garden indeed. During this crazy time in the world it's the little things that keep you sane. Truly the real power of nature. . . . #flowers #photography #columbineflowers #purple #pnwlife #pnw #pacificnorthwest #forthebees #nature #naturephotography #beauty #bellingham #washingtonstate #wonder #macro #columbine #getoutside #serenity #refuge #optoutside #neverstopexploring #spring #cascadiaexplored #pnwadventures

Lots of water flowing and rainbows that form when the sun hits the spray…waterfalls in the Oregon Cascades are gorgeous in the spring. Contributor image by @alicedoggett #destinationpnw

This was a spring winter wonderland. I was beyond stoked to have climbed the peak on the left and met a new outdoor partner this weekend! And my oh my was the snow and glacial lakes beautiful up there. I may be excited for summer adventures but I sure love frolicking in the snow! . Swipe right to see why I do photography and not watercolor. Thanks @cleo.dizzle for hosting wine and paint night, which helped me try to branch out my creative skills (or lack thereof) . . . #goatworthy #clymblife #liveclimbrepeat #mountainloophighway #cascadiaexplored #shemovesmountains #mountbakersnoqualmienationalforest #rei1440project #pnw #herpnwlife #wildernessculture #outdoorbella #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #exploretocreate #outside_project #theoutbound #choosemountains #welivetoexplore #liveauthentic #exploremore #wanderfolk #thevisualscollective #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #hookedonmountains

The light at the end of the tunnel . . Thank you @ash_berry_1 for keeping us safe from the sasquatches 😁 . . . This shot was very carefully posed with my hands and foot gently placed on bare areas of the rock so as not to disturb the moss and greenery. We absolutely did not climb up nor should you attempt to. (Had to add that in for those one or two people that completely flipped out when I posted this on fb yesterday. It’s nice to know they were obviously there with us in the cave hiding in the shadows watching our every move and know everything about how this was shot which entitled them to make completely out of context and rude assuming comments. 🤓) . . . #lestertsaiphotography #nationalgeographic #natgeo #cascadiaexplored #washingtonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwhiking #pnwphotography #pnwhikers #pnwescapes #pnwadventure #pnwexplorations #bealpha #shotonlexar #pnwroamers #pnwisbest #peakdesign #exploring #explorer #spelunking #adventuring #pnwphotographers #pnwphoto #sonyalpha #ourplanetdaily #earthfocus #pnwexplored #caves #earthofficial
