I love this place. I haven’t been since the fire last summer, and I’m afraid to go see it. It was so magical and it makes me sick knowing that so much beauty was destroyed by one naive, reckless teenager. #onlyyoucanpreventforestfires
It's been 6 months since I've moved to Canada, and it's been even longer since I'd seen any of my friends from when I was in Boston. While living in Vancouver has been great (and I've had a lot less stress ever since I moved to Canada), but I have missed my friends from the US ever since I moved here. A couple weeks ago, I got to meet @hole_in_the_pocket and @qurratulain2926 , and as a bonus, visit Olympic National Park. Good times.
For the rest of y'all here's hoping that I'll see you guys soon 🙂

Any planners out there? 🙋♀️ Prior to a vacation, I enjoy researching the destination, things to do, places to eat, lodging. If it’s a hiking trip, I’ll scope out trails, difficulty, elevations gains, length and timing of the round trip hike. I don’t plan every day to the detail but I like to have a list of options to explore once I arrive.
For my recent trip, my plans evaporated before my eyes 7 hours before departure as Yosemite was closed now for the entire week of my vacation. I scrambled to explore all the best options and immediately tackled transitioning the San Fran/Yosemite trip to Seattle. Running on 3 hours of sleep and a whole new “plan” I found myself in Seattle planning a new week.
The lesson though, it has become one of my favorite vacations ever. I saw more than I ever imagined! Beaches, parks, waterfalls, rain forests, the city, Blue Angels flying by our 35th floor high rise, hikes, mountains, turquoise water. Really, I could go on and on...
Don’t be afraid to abort your plans and simply show up in the moment and make the very best of life!
Quite possibly one of the most stunning campsites in this beautiful state. Last year at the same exact date I experienced this view masked with wildfire smoke.. beautiful in its own way.. although this year the clouds rolled in, but right when the colors appeared, they left a window for me to bear witness another summer sunset I will never forget.
"Devil's Staircase" This stunning and remote waterfall is currently under consideration for protection as Oregon's next Wilderness Area.
