The Pacific Northwest is a land of great beauty.  Where the landscape gently beckons to us with every pulse of life…  Go deeper, experience more, stay a little longer. The Pacific Northwest is alive, and its heart is experienced in water.

The heart of the Pacific Northwest is its coastline, surf, lakes, waterfalls, gorges, hot springs, rain forests, bays, and rivers. And rain, let’s remember the rain that blankets this region for days on end. It is here, where water on its endless journey to the sea meets the landscape, that our senses merge and we are filled with beauty, clarity and exhilaration. It is here, that we are inspiredto take photos:

Waterfalls never cease to amaze.

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing.  I’ll interpret rocks, learn the language of flood, storm and the avalanche.  I’ll acquaint myself with glaciers, wild gardens, and get as near to the heart of the world as I can.”  –John Muir

Yes, the heart of the Pacific Northwest is experienced in water. And, its people…whom are made of mostly water.
