Central Oregon hides several magnificent wonders. We went out to see the Painted Hills, and we discovered so much more!
Life can run away with us, but it’s important to press “pause” and take a breather every so often. And this time of year, autumn colors provide the perfect excuse.
The Nigardsbreen glacier in Norway left us speechless and awed, overwhelmed by its beauty and humbled by the sheer weight of nature’s power. Read all about our unforgettable journey here!
I only have one more post planned for Norway, but I’m taking a break this week to share something a bit closer to home. We went backpacking this summer in the spectacularly beautiful Olympic National Park, one of our closest national parks. (Fun fact: from Portland, Olympic National Park and Crater Lake National Park are almost exactly equidistant (ONP is barely closer – by a mile). Mount Rainier National Park is closer than both of them.. but we’ve surprisingly never been!) Ever since my epic adventure to Alaska last year, I’ve really taken a liking to backpacking, though I still haven’t quite figured out how to bring my bag weight down with all my imperative camera gear!
This particular sunset has a story behind it (don’t most photos?).
What is one to do when the Norwegian wilderness is calling, promising glaciers.. and they just can’t be found? Read the harrowing photostory of hunger, cairns, and the quest for a glacier!
Why do what all the tourists do, when we can have a trail all to ourselves? Read our adventure in Geiranger Fjord!
Norway had already amazed us, but it was about to step it up a notch with this incredible discovery of the Kjenndalen glacier!
