Where is your week taking you? We have a lot planned around the house this weekend, but we are camping next weekend in the San Juan’s, just booked flights to Hawaii in April, have tickets to Phoenix in March, and I’m headed to WSU with my daughter later this month. Keep your eyes on the prize and keep pushing. You’ll get there. #livesimple#vantagewa
Reaching New Heights One of my favorite activities growing up was climbing, whether it was in the trees where I grew up, the steep hillside behind our house, in physical ed class or at the Puyallup fair on the portable climbing walls.. whatever i could find to climb.. I'd be on it. Getting away from my obligated life and off on an adventure.. Remembering climbing the massive evergreen trees as close to the top as I could get, once I was there I would sit and observe.. the weather, the sky, the clouds, the birds, the critters, wild ...

2018 is almost over, and I am feeling grateful for all the adventures I was able to have this year... Especially the ones outside! Vantage wins for Best Sunset award. 🏆🔆 Yakama Territory. . . . #vantage#vantagewa
This summer I did a weekend roadtrip in Washington just to look at cool spots I'd saved in Google maps during the year. One of those was Vantage. I'm not a rock climber but I fell in love with all the wonderful weird rock formations there. I also learned that two bathrooms doesn't nearly support the mobs of climbers who camp there. I've never seen a longer bathroom line 😂 . . . . #wildplaces#exploretocreate
Cold and wet days ahead in #pdx... so here’s a #tbt to the sunny and sendy times at the Frenchman Coulee. 🏜 • • • We ventured out to Vantage, WA almost every weekend through the fall months, putting laps on all the routes at Riverview Park. Cheers to new adventures come Spring. 🌵🐾
Spent my birthday climbing at Vantage. What a year it has been. Grateful for being mostly currently able-bodied, and privilege to have easy access to the outdoors all season long. Thank you Tiffany and Brian for the invite and for driving. To many more adventures. · · · · · · · · #blessed#nofilter

Feeling really good about the climbing group yesterday. You could feel the nerves as we approached the first crag to climb together. . We circled up, introduced ourselves, shared our fears, spoke our truth and set our intention for the day. . Sharing our vulnerability with each other, coming together to lift, encourage, and support. The vibes transitioned immediately, not longer stress but family. . So tremendously privileged to know and climb with these women. I cannot express how proud I am of each of you for conquering your fears, and sticking to your intention for the day. I can't ...
Hey y’all. I’ve worn a lot of different hats in my life and always wondered whether I could commit to anything. I was a plumber, electrician, cook, environmentalist, educator, surf instructor, cellarhand, student, and government worker—among other toques and top hats. This picture is me on my 28th birthday in Washington state. I had just gone through a heavy break-up, was moving back to the Island, and feeling lost. It’s been a year and a half of fairly deep growth since then and I’ve realized that one thing I’ve always been committed to is my love for creating. I have ...
Fast lil’ family outing to the coulee today. May not look like it in these photos, but we did find some sun and dry rock. The kids were super amazing and even let us plug some pieces. #flyingbabies#vantagewa
This past weekend, I got to adventure with Shawn and Stephanie out to Vantage. It was so fun getting to shoot in the desert again! 💕 Here's a small sneak peek into their engagement session. . . . . . Can't wait for their July wedding in Bellingham! . . . . . . . . . . #authenticlovemag#belovedstories
Last nights adventures. Wild Horse Monument and the fleeting Milky Way. And of course if you like photography and want to follow my other page it is @kapture.whats.around.you #kapturewhatsaroundyou#jmanningphotography
One last Milky Way shoot for 2018. It was not the darkest spot. But had been wanting to do this shoot for a few months. Finally got to go shoot it. The Milkyway was right over a town about 30 miles away so had a little light pollution. But still love the way it turned out. What do you think. Let me know. #kapturewhatsaroundyou#jmanningphotography
