We still have a little time left before winter shows its ugly, snowy face and ruins all the fun and exploring that many enjoy in the non-snowy months. So what better way to enjoy the few beautiful, weathered days we have left than to drive and explore nature in all its glory?

One of my favorite places to go with my wife in Washington is Snoqualmie Falls. It contains such beauty and is an excellent place for some fantastic photos. Thanks to Jake Guzman’s social media for pointing out some beautiful sights in Oregon! I plan to check these out, what about you?
