Where to Take a Winter Daytrip in Washington

One thing I love about the winter time in Washington is taking little day trips throughout the season to explore different parts of the state and to go out and have a fun day (especially where there is snow!).  For the past two years, Josh and I have basically started our own little winter/Christmas season tradition of taking a day trip to Leavenworth to get in the holiday spirit and have some fun in the snow!

Where to Take Snow Day Instagram Pictures in Washington

Do you ever scroll through Instagram or Pinterest and see all of these super cute posed snow day photos and get inspired and in the mood for a winter wonderland? Because I know I do! Now that a lot of my blogging work requires time on Instagram, I wanted to take some cute snow day photos myself and go on little snow day adventures around my state for the perfect snowy photos!  It made for super fun date days for my boyfriend and I as well which was a total bonus.  Because snow day photos for the gram and Pinterest are so popular, I wanted to share some of my favorite locations to go to in Washington in the winter time to capture the perfect snow day photos!

Friday Favorite: Ape Caves at Mt. St. Helens

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 3.08.38 PM

I have lived in Western Washington long enough yet had never been to Mt. St. Helens.  I think a big part of this was that I was actually a little scared.  Volcanoes really freak me out!  Even just looking at the pictures of the horrible eruption at Mt. St. Helens in the ’80s, I can’t even imagine what that must have been like at the time.

But my boyfriend kept telling me how cool of an experience it is to walk through the Ape Caves at the mountain.  We’d talked about it for a while and I finally agreed to go.  I had gone long enough without going to the mountain and was really just curious what it was like there.
