This past weekend, Ethan Gulley, a long time friend via social media and photography, came to visit Seattle for the first time and wanted to see some of the sights that the Pacific Northwest had to offer.
I unfortunately had a schedule mishap and had to cut my time with him down to a short two days instead of four like we had planned. So we took to the open road and followed Highway 101 all the way up and down the coast to Oregon seeing as much as we could in two days. We made stops in the Olympic Peninsula, seeing Lake Crescent, La Push, small bits of Ruby Beach, and I saw the incredible Hoh Rainforest for the first time.
The following day we headed to Cannon Beach, while making stops in Astoria, seeing the original Goonies house, the shipwreck at Fort Stevens as well as the coast leading up to our final destitination. While we were there we met up with a small group of photographers from all over the country, including Whitney Justesen and Rob Woodcox. I wish I had more time to adventure around, but I am glad that Ethan and I were able to spend the time together that we had. It is always so great being with people who are likeminded. It's so refreshing.
