Great Northwest

September 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Recently my family and I took a nice little (and much needed) vacation to the great northwest of the US.  Specifically to Portland Or, and Seattle Wa.  

We made a few stops along the way and did a lot of touristy type stuff, but it was a lot of fun and it was actually the first time my son was on both a plane and a boat.  Here are some of the shots that I took on this trip..

The good old iphone shot of the wing... A little 30 min drive outside of Portland and you will find Multnomah Falls. Worth the drive..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The good old iPhone shot from the plane...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little 30 min drive outside of Portland and you will find Multnomah Falls.  Worth the drive..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It might look the same, but the one on the left, high shutter, the one on the right a lower shutter to create the blur of the falls..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wider angle of this fantastic place..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another little stream I found on my way back from the falls

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously, what else are you going to eat in Portland... 

Best maple bacon donut EVER!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The road less traveled is usually really beautiful...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canon Beach in Or.  Even in the fog it is really something to see...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you were a kid in the 80's, you might know what movie this is from...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very East Coast look...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was just a random road I saw on the way back from Canon Beach...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above is a little iPhone panorama that I did on our last day in Portland while eating b'fast with my family...if you look to the left, you can see my wife holding my son doing the same thing...

 

 

 

 

 

 

On our way to Seattle, we decided to swing by Mount St. Helens.  Only problem is it was completely fogged in and couldn't see anything...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the visitors centers on the way back to the freeway had some really cool looking hiking trails..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is another view from that same trail above...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Probably the 2nd most touristy thing we did....I will get to the first..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our first day in Seattle, the family decided to take a little boat ride around the harbor...It offered some nice views..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Seattle Skyline.... Not bad..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Want to see some fish being tossed around..Go Here..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside Pikes Place Framers market

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most touristy things....The first Starbucks.  And what do you know..they actually make good tasting coffee in this one..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A view of downtown Seattle from atop the Space Needle...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The number 1 most touristy thing we did... We actually found this by mistake after my wife's Apple Maps got us lost...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Space Needle by night.. And full moon..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right next to the Space Needle is the Pacific Science Center.  We spent our last day here, and it was by far the most fun my son had on the trip...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The customers are long gone but the place is still really cool...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Playing on the waterfront..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is another view of the water front.  You can see Centry Link field in the background...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed... If you would like to purchase any of the shots for prints simply let me know in the comments or with an email...
