Made a quick coast run through my old stomping grounds. Left a little early and obviously had to bing Bolt along.

It's similar to some of my recent posts but, taking advantage of #waterfallwednesday with this pic of Toketee Falls.

More bad decisions... We had visited this places last winter with ice and snow. There were a few spots on the trail that turned several groups back, even before the viewing platform, but we managed to get by. It was too hairy to go beyond the platform that day without different gear. The descent had to be put on hold until... Unsuspecting Bolt and I headed out Friday afternoon for an adventure. If you been before, you know how much of a badass Bolt is. He was a little nervous, but made it in and out with little help... He was glad to get back to the truck, only he didn't spring into the seat like he usually does. Instead, he looked back at me with his paws reaching towards the seat looking back with that, "my ass is going to lift itself" look.
Hope you enjoy the efforts!

Washing dishes and laundry... Or?

Pretty sure I can live with my bad decisions.

This was the first spot we visited on our trip last weekend. I've seen hundreds, if not thousands of photos of these falls, none of which truly gives a true perspective of their size. They are gorgeous and huge. I spent a good hour bouncing around trying to get some cool shots as Lisa played mountain goat trying to reach the top. In the end after looking at all the pictures this was my favorite, because it shows some scale and obviously because Lisa is in it... She's the little orange spot at the bottom.

Here's something a little more PNW... I'm sure you all are getting tired of my night photography.
This was phase one of our recent getaway trip. Ive been wanting to hike into this place for a while, was going to snowshoe in last winter, but things kept coming up until last Saturday. I was also itching to try out my new Fotodiox WonderPana filter system for the Tamron. Let me just say, the lens is a robust chunk of glass and this filter system enhances that... I guess we all compensate in our own way. 🤔

Are you getting sick of these pictures yet?
Just another one from Dee Right where I spent some time trying to bring the Milky Way out a touch more.
This trip was also the maiden voyage for my new gear pack. I looked around at packs designed for photography, but was having a hard time finding the right fit. I ended up at @rei and picked up on of their Trail 40 packs. All I can say is, it's perfect!! I have a padded insert to protect my sensitive stuff and lots of room for everything else. It handles the load great and was super comfortable on our short hike around Proxy. So if you're looking... Check it out.

A few weeks ago, late night/ early morning, I ran over to the coast, swinging by and picking up Tyler and his friend Carreina, for a quick drive up to Cape P. Our plans of taking some beach pics with the Milky Way soon came to a screeching halt when the clouds really started moving in. We continued on, hoping they'd break, but knowing they were fairly heavy. On the way, we decided to pull off at Strawberry Hill and try and make it down to the beach. This trail will take you down some rocks to just above the sand, on a low tide... It wasn't low tide, so we set up on the rocks just above the beach. Keep in mind, it was a new moon, with some good cloud cover, leaving us in total darkness when our headlamps were out. After snapping a few pics we continued on to the overlook. By the time we got there it was completely cloudy, so we goofed off and watched a few cars zip by on the curves below. I was doubtful the pics from our trip were going to be worth spending any time with, but was thankful to get some extra time with the kiddos. I finally had a chance to look through the pics and this one jumped out to me. It was also the kids' favorite... I'm glad we stopped at Strawberry Hill on the way up!

Lisa and I snuck out of town this weekend to spend some time in the Cascades. We made a stop by Proxy Falls and then Dee Wright Observatory. This one was taken from the top of the observatory as the moon was rising after a few hours of total darkness. The Milky Way is a little lighter due to the moon, but loved the way it lit up the foreground. Even though it was 44 degrees and breezy, it was a good time. We met some cool people out braving the dark and wind to see the stars early this morning.

Before we headed out in the dark for the last pic, we were there in the daylight. This pic was taken very close to where I snapped the Milky Way pic of the falls.
