Summer on the Road : Part Five - Oregon

Happy Monday, guys! Finishing up the last installment of this road trip series as I'm packing up the car for the next adventure. This time, we're heading down south to North Carolina and Georgia! Excited to see some of these mountains with their Fall foliage - fingers crossed we have better luck than last time! 

Going through all these photos really has me missing the Northwest, and all my friends out there. Especially the ones in Portland! On the last leg of this trip, I was able to finally meet up with my friend, Helbert. You guys may recognize him from my Montana and Alberta pics from later in the summer. So fortunate to have met this guy - we have definitely become fast friends since our first adventure! Looking forward to more days on the coast and in the mountains with this one.

Have one final summer blog in the works, before it's on to the colorful days of Fall. Stay tuned

Summer on the Road : Part Four - Washington Coast

Hey guys! I have to admit it, I've been subconsciously dragging these posts out a bit. I think I'm just enjoying reminiscing on my favorite adventures from the Summer! It's hard for me to be in Washington without spending time on the Olympic peninsula, this trip included. My friend, Hannah, and I met up early to take the ferry to Kingston, and from there made our way to the coast. We were greeted with a snowstorm on top of Hurricane Ridge, followed by a torrential downpour of rain from Lake Crescent all the way to La Push. After a night of car camping, we woke before dawn to make our way down to the beach. The weather was still not in our favor, but luckily that meant we had the place all to ourselves. I've never seen it so quiet before! From there, we traveled further south, making our way closer to my final destination : Oregon. A quick detour to the Hoh rainforest (where we were almost trampled by elk), and a couple other stops along the coast. It was a whirlwind of a road trip, and always bittersweet to leave the peninsula behind. Definitely feels like there's some magic living in those coastal forests. Stay tuned for the final post from this trip!

Summer on the Road : Part Three - Washington Mountains

Happy Fall, guys! 

I can't believe it's officially my second favorite season (Winter being the first). Last week we traveled up north to hunt for foliage, but unfortunately we arrived too soon for peak. Before I start sharing some colder weather memories, I have a few more from the Summer months! I was fortunate to travel to the Northwest twice for late spring and early summer conditions. We started off by exploring close to Seattle, with a visit to Treehouse Point and a couple quick hikes up to Lake 22 and Heybrook Lookout. From there, my amazing friend, Hannah, and I FINALLY met and trekked out to the peninsula for a weekend on the coast. Check back in a couple days for more!
