2022 | Week 42

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Join me as I journey through life on a mission to make a difference, one step at a time, one week at a time. How was your week? Here's a glance at mine...


Another classic hike, Rattlesnake Ledge is a Northwest local favorite and is great for out-of-town guests as well! This week, my cousins from Arizona wanted to join me on my adventure so I decided to bring them here! From the lake below to the ledge above, the views are outstanding and the weather was absolutely perfect! It was a breezy fall day and the sun was shining bright - it honestly felt like summer. We enjoyed snacks at the summit, took lots of photos, and hung out by the lake after. The water was incredibly low this time of year; however, it is still a sight to see! It was an amazing day making memories with my family and I am so happy they wanted to go on an adventure with me! I am grateful for places like this and I love being able to showcase the beautiful place I call home, the Pacific Northwest.
