Over the past year I have been lucky enough to explore the PNW with my friends. The persistent question is always ‘what are we doing this weekend?’ So, we make the most of every hour in the weekend by waking up early and going to bed late. In the end, the sleep deprivation and instant ramen dinners are worth it for the memories and photographs we take home. I think it's important for everyone to experience the outdoors, especially when we live somewhere where you can travel from the Cascades to the Oregon coast in one day.
