I recently flew to Portland and met up with my college roommate and fellow adventure lover, photographer, and friend. We backpacked and road tripped along the Washington Coast, just the two of us! (much to my mother's horror, lol) It was a beautiful dream come true, and an unforgettable trip. We saw the Hall of Mosses in the Hoh Rainforest, backpacked and camped at Second Beach, saw Sol Duc Falls, hiked in and camped at Shi Shi beach, drove to the Cape of Flattery-- the northern tip of Washington where you could look out to BC Canada... it was incredible (we even saw a whale!). We drove along the top of Washington along the coast back down to Panther Creek Falls, and back into Oregon for night sky shots at Mt. Hood. We had so much fun. We slept on the sandy beach two nights, and in our car the other night... and yet, it was perfect. We took pictures to our hearts content and breathed the fresh air. The cool, moist air is so refreshing for me. I love it there.

Here are some of my favorite highlights :)
