On the edge of a cliff watching the sunset go down with good friends. #tbt

Beware the sneaker waves... the waves were estimated 25-28 feet that day and I wondered who named the Pacific so poorly. The second picture is for scale @jack.chance is that wee speck on the top left hand side of the cliff. Wikipedia notes, The terminology is popular rather than scientific: there is no scientific coverage (or evidence) of the phenomenon as a distinct sort of wave with respect to height or predictability—as there is on other extreme wave events such as rogue waves. One American oceanographer distinguishes "rogue waves" as occurring on the ocean and sneaker waves as occurring at the shore. I will note that as we were scaling to where he was in the second pic, he suddenly told me to stop and pressed me against the rocks covering me with his body as a wave came up and over the cliff and wetted us solid. Always watch the ocean, she does not like to be ignored... #indiansands#indiansandstrail#oregoncoast#oregonexplored#samuelboardmanstatepark#sneakerwave#pnwonderland#pnw
Every so often you come across a place that makes you feel so significant yet insignificant at the same time. It’s a complicated emotion, but a powerful one. There is no picture I could take, no words I could say to describe how special this place is. One more off the bucket list! 🌊⛅️🌲🌎💚 #samuelboardmanstatepark#naturalbridges#oregoncoast

Breathing it all in.. 🌊 Don’t you think that ocean therapy should be covered by health insurance🤔
This guy sure felt truly adventurous while exploring the Oregon Coast last Sunday. There are so many short beautiful hikes in the area with great viewpoints of the ocean. We went off the trail and came across another trail which led us to this beautiful view 🤗 🌊 #pnw_kids#kidswhoexplore
Boy these vans were once so clean and white. This is the result of a few adventures. What once was brand new is now old and grungy but damn do they have some crazy stories to tell. They gots character 🤙🏼
Tried 3 straight evenings to get a sunset shot of this place. After the third time of a 3pm fog layer rolling in, I broke camp and was heading north shortly after dawn the next morning when I realized the fog had cleared. Thus, for the third time, I headed back down the scariest trail I’m every going to do for a photo. Steep, slippery, and partially roped, ending in a shooting spot on one of the natural bridges with about 36” on either side to a 100’ drop into the ocean. Ug. And now, having just seen @jimmy_chin ‘s amazing @freesolofilm, I feel like a giant wimp. Anyway, this place really calls for sunset light, and I’d do the hike again if I could come to some understanding with the marine layer. #discover_oregon#splendid_shotz#pnwonderland#oregoncoast#samuelboardmanstatepark#jj_oregon#oregonexplored#pnwlife#bestoforegon#cascadiaexplored
Stay tuned. I have my first solo show in a couple years coming up in December. This image may or may not be part of said show but it is representative. More details to follow but right now I’m on a run for the mountains.

He is the hope that holds me
And the Stronghold to shelter me,
The only God for me
And my great confidence.

Excited to be heading back up to this state tomorrow! Needing some major mountain and waterfall therapy. Here’s a throwback to hands down my favorite spot on the Oregon coast. This natural bridge is hidden under the cliff and is only visible from a short scramble down to this spot

We felt like we were in some exotic foreign land as we sipped our #buoybeer after a steady day (30,000+ steps on the #fitbit ) on the trails and watched the sun slip over the horizon. Swipe ➡️ to see what this spot looked like long after the ☀️ bid us farewell.
