Federation Forest Cedars

Here are some good old cedar trees from Federation Forest State Park, Washington. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him – John 3:14-15

Shipwrecked Sunset

I camped at Fort Stevens, Oregon last weekend. Pretty cool place with tons of bike riding trails, old military structures, and even a shipwreck (Peter Iredale). Pretty awesome. “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” – Matthew 19:26

Federation Forest State Park

Just outside of Greenwater is a small state park called Federation Forest State Park. It boast 12 miles of trails and Hobbit Village which was full of gnomes and stuff. I’ve read though that it’s been removed because people were trashing it. I never saw it so I can’t say what was there but maybe […]

Lighthouse in the Trees

Here’s another one of the Grays Harbor Lighthouse. You can climb 135 stairs to get to the top and I believe there’s a guide up there to give you some history. I was informed by a volunteer that the fresnal lens is turned on a couple times a year which might be cool to check […]

Deep Lake

Deep Lake is located in Nolte State Park, Washington. It’s stocked all year for those who like fishing and there’s a nice hiking trail (about 1.5 miles) that goes around the lake. “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven” – Matthew 10:32

Driftwood Sunrise

Here’s a sunrise shot from Kauai I took back in 2014 at Lydgate State Park. It was nice shooting the sunrise on the beach in shorts and flip flops. Not too many days you can do that in the Pacific Northwest. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, […]

Flaming Geyser State Park

I guess it’s been a while since I’ve been to a state park in Washington State but I was unpleasantly surprised to find out they cost $10 for a day pass per car. I know that’s not that much but they used to be free and I had some visitors in a separate car with […]
