Wanderlust is defined as a very strong desire to travel. I am having a serious case of wanderlust. Though I’ve not spent a great deal of time at home recently I desire to travel. Travel to one place in particular. Three words: the PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
Hecata Head Lighthouse near Florence, Oregon
Have you ever visited a place and immediately felt at home? That’s the way I felt when I first stepped foot in the Pacific Northwest. I’d move there in a heartbeat. I’ve been all over the state of Washington. From the beautiful Pacific Ocean to the mountains all the way over to the orchards of Eastern Washington. For those of you from the great state of Oregon I’ve spent plenty of time there too. It’s a toss-up to pick a favorite so I’m not going to do it!

I hope the photos of all the beautiful places in Washington and Oregon I’ve had the privilege of visiting inspire a wanderlust in you like they do in me!
