The waves are mesmerizing.

Crown point in the Columbia River Gorge. This was our view when I moved to the northwest at 7 years old. I didn’t realize what I had until I got older. Where is your favorite place you’ve lived?🌎🌊📸🌲

Just finished up some staff training with the @themarinedetective @mersociety who shared her extensive experience and knowledge of our area’s marine life with us. A walk through the Whale Museum helps put things in perspective 🐋🤯 #explorecanada #pnw #kayakwildcoast

Revisiting the memories of my favorite place. A place of wonder and dramatic beauty.
.
.
Walking into Mt. Assiniboine brought back thru-hiking memories. It was a 20 mile hike and I wasn’t in the best conditioning. It brought back the memory of the days where you had to struggle through the pain to get to where you needed to go. It also reminded me that a beautiful place has the amazing ability to erase those pains and all those negative thoughts that have been building. This is also true with our weekly existence in the rat race. We have all these stressors that build on us and we may not even perceive how much they are hurting our minds, hearts and bodies - but they are! This is why a rest day where I do a mandatory break from all the work is critical to my health and sanity. God knew this and specifically gave us a day to have as a vacation each week, to leave work behind and to find our joy. Please make time to find your joy every week, set a day aside, mine is Saturday. It’s helped me so much to calibrate and recover from the insanity out there (and even my own thoughts and feelings!). .

the feeling of walking on old streets is something special...

Squamish 50/50 training week 4 // 80.5 km 🏃🏻‍♂️ 8h27m ⏱️ 3379 m ⛰️

Felt like the first proper week of training this week. Banked 50 km in the weekend alone. Saturday’s long run was a bit of a struggle, but I was happy with how I persevered and pushed through. The second half of the back-to-back on Sunday morning started off slow and difficult as well, but on the return portion I felt surprisingly spry. Feels good to tick off a consistent week; my third biggest week of training ever. Slowly but surely, I will build this house.

Regrann from @steveschwindt - The early burn of a truly incredible sunrise I was lucky enough to witness at Crater Lake last winter. This is definitely one of, if not the most, memorable sunrise I’ve ever experienced. The previous day I hiked to the top of Tom Dick & Harry Mountain, tweaking a leg muscle so I wasn’t able to make it quite as far out at Crater as I would have liked. I settled on this spot which was actually the first time I had ever snow camped before. In the morning, I woke up to the beginnings of this - when the colors start to form an hour or so before the actual sunrise. This was the first cool explosion of color before it died down for a few minutes and then erupted with bright yellows, oranges and reds. Standing there in awe, I had my headphones in listening to M83 which seemed perfect for the occasion, knowing that it didn’t get much better than that moment right then.

Regrann from @steveschwindt - Early morning twilight looking at “Howling Dog” (aka the new Wizard’s Hat) at the coast in Bandon. I know that because @jesse.brackenbury and I were throughly educated by a couple of locals who made sure we knew the correct terminology 😛 It took way too long, but this was my first time down to Bandon. Quite the drive from Portland but I can definitely see why so many others have fallen in love with it.

Regrann from @steveschwindt - Early morning glow on Mt. Hood and the White River after mid-October snow showers. I have a pretty distinct shot in mind for the White River area that I’d like to get this winter so I didn’t think much of this shot at first, but I ended up working on it with an instruction/processing client and it really started to grow on me. Although I’d prefer to have snow on the trees, I do like how the rocks and river are still visible, providing some additional texture. Speaking of instruction, I have 1 spot remaining for my upcoming Pacific NW Winter Workshop this January. It’s a small/casual group setting and we cover both shooting and processing techniques - check out the link in my bio for more information.

Regrann from @steveschwindt - After warmer temperatures last week, it seems like winter is officially moving in - so excited to get out and start shooting it! Here’s one of my favorite photos (and first) from last winter that really set the stage and got me hooked on shooting winter scenes. I got super lucky with the conditions and don’t think I could really ask for more. Trillium Lake was half-frozen which provided good variation in texture, good clouds with color, and rising fog that grew stronger as the sun continued to set. Fingers crossed I get some more lucky moments like that again this year!

Regrann from @steveschwindt - A classic view of Smith Rock during a great sunset from a couple weeks ago. Although I’ve been to Smith Rock numerous times, I’ve always had a tough time coming home with a photo I was happy about. So when I was driving back from Bandon I figured I’d make a quick stop here and meet up with @austinjackson29 who was in the area having an early thanksgiving with his family. After wandering around aimlessly for a while, we settled on this particular spot that still had some remaining blooms (not sure on the plants/flowers?). There was one big boulder that was elevated just enough to clear the flowers and give a good view. Austin got set up in a matter of seconds and then enjoyed watching me for at least 20 minutes while I unsuccessfully tried to position my tripod on the side of the rock. I have a truly uncanny ability to pick the most awkward spots - luckily I was able to get it in place just in time as the clouds began to catch fire.

Seeing yourself at the other side makes even the most rickety bridges easier to cross.

I took this photo a couple of months ago and really didn’t care for it because the light that day was not cooperating. After spending some time with it, I noticed how much damage the Eagle Creek fire caused here and it made me thankful that the area wasn’t completely destroyed. #dji #djimavicpro #djimavicpro #mavicpro #mavic #djimavic #drone #dronephotography #dronestagram #drones #droner #droneoftheday #fromwhereidrone #waterfall #waterfalls #pnw #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #oregon #dronespace

A lot of this water is Orca urine, the rest is salt. Tastes amazing

Last weekend’s camp dinner to replenish from the fort build. Doesn’t look as tasty as it was.
I started with 1/4 package of bacon, diced up. I cooked it slow to try and get as much grease in the bottom of my pan as possible. I then added some steak I cut into cubes and simmered it, with the bacon, for about an hour (seasoned with Chicago steak seasoning). I added instant mashed potatoes to soak up the juices, and some cheese. Top 5 camp meals I have ever cooked.

Mushroom lessons! The darker one on the left is a true morel, the lighter one on the right is a “false morel” or a verpa. You can tell the difference because a true morel has a totally hollow stem@and the cap attaches near the bottom while the verpa has fibrous stuff inside the stem and the cap attaches way at the top of stem 🍄🤓
