One of my best stress-reducing hobbies is outdoor photography. We are so fortunate to live on the West coast, and each year we take several trips into the mountains of California, the Pacific Northwest, the western states, and if we’re lucky enough, also to BC Canada (my true home).

On this page, I share several collections of favorite images.  These are selections from our collection of over 9000 photos that we’ve posted so far at our Flickr account, Northwest Lovers. If you enjoy, write to me for more!
