My wife and I traveled North this past weekend to one of Washington State’s hidden gems.  We were in search of a low elevation backpacking trail that was free of snow.  I was in search of great opportunities to capture beautiful fine art photographers.  We found both along the banks of the Lewis River.

While the trail itself stretches for scores of miles up the Lewis River and one of its tributaries, Quartz Creek, the 15 challenging miles we covered were filled with cotton candy streams, beautiful forests, and amazing waterfalls.

Unfortunately, while the location was beautiful, the weather wasn’t and I found myself shooting in the pouring rain for almost the entire trip.  But, as you can see below, not all was lost!
