Photo Crawl - Pike Place Market

My friend Gwen has been trying to hook up this photo crawl for a long time and we finally got together on March 6 down in Seattle. The day was glorious and we met up down at the AmTrak station to pick up Paula and Jan who rode up from Portland. I arrived a bit later than planned so I met the gals at Pike Place Market. We walked through the market, inside and out. Then we strolled down near the Seattle Art Museum to grab a coffee and lunch and do some journaling in these awesome little journals Gwen made for us for our photo crawl. It was so much fun to hang and shoot with some like-minded artists. It's very inspiring and really re-ignites my creative energy.

Olympic Peninsula & the Hoh Rainforest

Collin and I went on a weekend getaway last weekend. We drove up on Friday afternoon and stayed at the Chito Beach Resort, based on Teesha's recommendation. It was a cozy little place to stay and we spent Saturday exploring the Hoh Rainforest inside Olympic National Park. It was awesome! We saw 3 herd of Elk, about 5-6 Bald Eagles, some river otters, and many other various size birds and critters, including one cute fellow with a pinecone (see below).
