Photo Journey to the Pacific Northwest for Winter

Looking out car window at cows

Somewhere in Utah. I took a different route this time instead of I5. Instead I went through Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and finally Washington.

Shooting out the window on the road

Scored the sunset pretty good while crossing this massive bridge. Not many highway photos as I was driving…

Arrived hometown - Tacoma Narrows Bridges

I landed in Gig Harbor and stopped at a favorite local spot of mine looking at the Narrows bridges.

Hwy 12 Vista Outlook

Made it to Packwood, WA and took a scenic drive up Hwy 12 to White Pass to scope the pre-season status.

White Pass early season check

Good amount of snow at the base. This is the old two man chairlift they no longer run because they have the high speed quad lift now to the lookers left.

White Pass Sign
View of Mt. Rainier

On the way back down Mt. Rainier greeted me with some great afternoon light.

Masi Bike Fireside

The 1500+ mile drive took a toll on my bike on top of my car. Spent some time cleaning it up by the fire.

Packwood Tea

Elk happen in Packwood.

Packwood Tall Trees

All around the cabin I’m staying in for this winter are HUGE trees and branches that have fallen during gnarly wind storms.

Finally, a shot of the cabin I’ll be spending much of my time at this winter.

By Raleigh

I am really fortunate for my work that allows me a flexible enough schedule to live my life in a way that affords me much happiness.
