Paddle boarding on a big ass lake at 25°F = kinda dumb but a lot fun!
Back in Alaska, a truly awesome day to be out and about.  You only get one life, enjoy it if you can :-) #paddleboardalaska
Fantastic time visiting Mount Rainier National Park, got to visit the Spray Park, Sunrise, and Paradise areas on quick two-day trip. Had amazing weather and the hiking there is awesome, you cannot beat the view when the mountain is out. Will definitely be back to explore a lot more in the future!
Beautiful hike on the eastern side of North Cascades National Park on a nice late September day. Heather & Maple Pass Loop, the larch are turning and the marmots were out fattening up before their winter hibernation. Such a beautiful area! The variety of environments that you can explore in Washington is awesome.
Amazing day of hiking in North Cascades National Park, this place has been on my to-do list for a few years and finally got the chance to explore it. It did not disappoint! Cascade Pass Trail
Great end to an awesome day
No trip to the Olympic National Park is complete in my book without a trip to Sol Duc Falls. The rainforest is pretty amazing, I'm pretty sure this is where the color green comes from!
Beautiful couple of days driving the 101 Thru part of Oregon and up the Olympic Peninsula coast. Sunny yesterday, cloudy and rainy today, gorgeous all the same. Love this place
Sometimes a cheery little campfire is in order
Did some exploring off of my favorite trail in Alaska yesterday and it did not disappoint! Such a nice day to be out having a little adventure.
Fall has come to the Kenai Mountains
This is pretty much my happy place
An end to a pretty good day.
So I'm out watering the plants around 10 p.m. last night and I hear something up in the big cottonwood tree. Must be a squirrel ... Sounds too loud to be a squirrel, maybe I'll check it out. I look up and this guy was getting settled in for a snooze! His friend was also up in the tree but was better hidden. You just never know what you're going to see around here
Love this old hound!
Nice views on the way home from a work trip followed up with some hammock time in the backyard on a beautiful July day. The dog is snoozing in the grass beside me, life is pretty good.
The views of Kenai Lake just never get old
