Funny how the more you’re on your own, the more you want to be alone.
The pacific northwest beaches of the Olympic peninsula are more intriguing than your regular run of the mill sandy ones. Ruby beach in the forks area being one of most popular places to experience one of these. With sea stacks flanking the beaches that are often host to tide pools in their proximity, and driftwood all over the beach, these are exciting places.
Driftwood make for one of the most exciting hiking opportunities as you make your way over tonnes of tree trunks that lodged in the beaches by the pacific. The volume of driftwood is often astounding. Make sure you're sure footed and don't hike them during tides, to not fataly harm yourself, and you'll have the time of your life traversing your way through the driftwood finding the most fun path to a beach that you have ever taken!
A cool sample from this past week to match a sample we took in the same location last year. Thanks @marc_schrameck!
repost • @marc_schrameck Enraptured by the North Cascades as I stand atop Black Peak. I can think of few reasons that will me to wake in the predawn hours: this landscape full of multiple terranes with diverse ecoregions is more than worth the alarm. Just look at Mt. Goode across the way, and... you know I'll be back.
Plus... Snow Algae! Another climb in which I gathered samples for @living_snow_project. I'll soon be dropping this kit off to @patagoniaseattle for delivery to the Kodner Lab.
🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼a lot of times I believe we end up doing things to prove something to someone else ..
But instead of doing that let’s do it for yourself !! Be healthy, workout ,reach your goals . For YOU!😘😘
That feeling you have when it feels like it’s been too long since you climbed and all of a sudden, things line up in the cosmos, the universe hears you and you’re climbing 4 DAYS IN A ROW. 🙌🏻 Leading and rapping the trad fixings on Repo Towers in this pic, not too long ago.

Well, that was a nice surprise evening in the shop! Got a ton of boring work done (fitting mitered corners is no joke), and have made a positive clamping system for the #cherrywoodcommission that I've been working on. Took the last 30 minutes to do a little more work on my fancy pants walnut plane shelves... doing the layout around the live edge was a delightful challenge! Almost ready to cut the first one but ran out of time.
Does any one else LOVE using maps on road trips? It may be old school, but it’s my favorite. 🗺🚙
I think national parks are a love language and specifically ours 😂😍 We are celebrating our anniversary this weekend and we decided to take a trip to #craterlakenationalpark . We realized that each year of our married life we have visited (at least) one national park and decided that this tradition needs to be one that sticks.

Yeah the mountain is pretty cool and all, but I came for the trees 🌲✨

Lunch on the go.
I’m working with @JimmyJohns to announce their new grab and go sandwich, the Frenchie. Available for a limited time only, this sandwich is a delicious option for any excursion.
Hi hello 👋
I’m squinting in the sunshine to announce I made a new exclusive post on my Patreon yesterday! It’s a full, live recording of our never before released song “Tissues”. There’s a ton of new folks on here so if you don’t know about Patreon, it’s basically how I support myself between shows and raise funds for recording, touring, and other music-related projects. Supporters pledge a $1 or more a month to help me make more music, and in return you all get advanced access to songs, videos, and other neato things.
I’m currently working to reach my living wage fund on Patreon, which would allow me to pay my rent, bills, grocery costs, and save money for recording and tours so I can get more art to you all.
I try not to make a habit of promoting it too heavily, but we’re very close to $700/month, so if you met me on tour, or feel like you’d like to find a way to support me that doesn’t rely on streaming my music, please check the link in my bio and let me know if you have any questions!
Just as the sun came up the fog slowly started to fade away. What a view from above to start the day along the Oregon Coast.🚁
Sometimes it is not enough to do our best; we must do what is required.
