Raphael and I went on this trip as boyfriend and girlfriend.
Little did I know, Raphael had an engagement ring and rose petals stashed in his camera bag. In the middle of the Hoh Rainforest, he covered my eyes with my beanie hat and got down on one knee. It sounds really romantic (and it was) but I’ll be realistic: we were both SO sick on this entire trip. But that didn’t stop us from exploring.
We flew into Portland, OR and drove to Cannon Beach. From there, we drove up the Oregon Coast towards Forks, WA (of Twilight fame - apparently still capitalize on it) and stayed in a little cabin in Beaver, WA for three nights. This was our home base while we explored Olympic National Park and The Hoh Rainforest. Next, we drove the inland route from Beaver, WA back down to Portland, where we spent the last night before departing back to LA.
Cameras: The 1DX mark ii (35mm and 14mm), a GH5 (18 - 35 mm Sigma lens) and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
