Shi Shi Beach

Shi Shi Along the northern coast in Washington state lies a long and remote stretch of beautiful coast known as Shi Shi Beach. A hike that cannot be overstated as it's easily my favorite place to be in the natural world. The views are otherworldly. The sounds of the waves continuously crashing is enticing. I...

Orcas Island

Mt. Constitution the highest point in the San Juan Islands. To round off the week of outdoor adventure I headed north to the San Juan Islands. I am constantly reminding myself just how incredible it is that I live near so many amazing natural wonders. And sometimes that can create havoc when attempting to hammer... Continue Reading →

Big Four Ice Cave

After completing Lake Twenty-Two I continued onto the Mountain Loop Highway to see what other adventure awaits. That's when I arrived at the Big Four. I had originally heard about the Big Four Ice Cave on the news when someone died inside the cave back in 2015. It is not the first time mother nature... Continue Reading →

Lake Twenty-Two

The surreal is real. It's the beginning of fall and I realize I had requested a week off to walk to Portland. I decided to put that goal on hold to immerse myself in an epic solo outdoor adventure. That's how I ended up on the Mountain Loop Highway on a Monday in autumn. I... Continue Reading →

RattleSnake Ledge

Mount Washington Olympic Peninsula

Mount Washington was my first hike on the Olympic Peninsula. It was my first attempt to bag an Olympic peak that turned out unsuccessful. It's always a bummer to miss the peak but blooming mountain flowers are a welcome sight. I was hoping to do some berry picking seeing how it's peak season but nothing... Continue Reading →

Granite Mountain

The first time I hiked Granite Mountain it was with Felix. It was a few years ago and by his suggestion. We did the hike in early spring when snow was plentiful and white out conditions were waiting for us up top. We didn't know this though because we hadn't done a lick of research...

Kendall Katwalk

Kendall Katwalk is one of those hikes where the higher in elevation I got, the less I could see. As I broke out of the trees and entered the Talus fields, immediately I was hit with strong gust of wind and clouds enveloping all around me. There were a few quick glimpses of Red Mountain...
