I went through my long list of blog posts and deleted a lot of my early posts where there wasn’t much substance. However, hidden within these posts were a few sunset gems. I decided I would take all these shots and place them into their own post.

Summer was quickly coming to a close, and I had yet to take any coastal backpacking trips. So with a sunny weekend on the forecast, we packed up the car, and made way for Shi Shi Beach.
With a slight break in the weather, I decided I would head off to the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and do a bit of backpacking.
With a break in the grey weather, it was the perfect time to pack up the camera and head out to the ocean for the afternoon.
My previous, and first camping trip on San Juan Island, was in the cold harsh winter. Even as such, I had a great time and wanted to go back as soon as I could. So with the weather a little bit warmer, I took some time off from work and reserved another spot at the San Juan County Park.
Easter weekend was quickly approaching and I had yet to plan anything. Taking a look at the weather revealed that once again we would have two days of pure sunshine. Last weekend I did some camping on San Juan Island. So this time I wanted to kick things up a notch and do some backpacking along the coast at La Push in the Olympic National Park.
Winters in the Pacific Northwest tend to drag on at times. It’s not the cold or the rain. It’s the constant grey skies that start to wear on you. So when I saw a weekend forecast that called for blue skies and warm weather, I decided it was time to make an early trip to the San Juan Islands.
It was the last day of 2012 and I had decided instead of boozing it up, I was going to spend it camping at Fort Stevens State Park in Northern Oregon. To be honest, I only chose this location because of the Wreck of Peter Iredale. That, and its close proximity to my previous night of camping back in Cape Disappointment State Park in Southern Washington.
Back from a Christmas break in Florida, I decided I would do something different this New Years and go camping in a couple State Parks. First up on my list was Cape Disappointment State Park in Southern Washington.
A few shore birds from one of my visits down to the beach during sunset. This Tri-colored Heron hunts for minnows on the shore break.
