  • This photo does not adequately capture the beauty I experienced this weekend. Not only are the San Juan Islands home to some of the most awe-inspiring horizon lines and landscapes, but they're also home to Mother Nature's celebrities-- #orca whales. Seeing these magnificent creatures up close in the wild was something I will never forget, and will serve as a constant reminder that we humans have a compulsory responsibility to SHARE this planet and RESPECT all life. Huge shout out to J Pod for showing us what freedom really looks like, and what family really means. #sanjuan #whalewatching #orcas

  • One of my favorite parts of the drive back to Washington... I drove through an incredible rainstorm coming through the mountains near the California/Oregon border, you can see it up ahead in this photo.

  • I ran across a busy street and up a dirt hill and climbed on a "no trespassing" fence with the wind in my hair to take this... It was very Nicholas Sparks of me
