5 Photos to Inspire you to Take a Hike

5 Photos Friday!

I like the idea of inspiring people to travel through photography, and I have plenty of inspiring photos from my travels. 5 photos Friday is a way for me to collect a few nice photos and share them under one travel relevant topic, via a short and sweet blog post. You can look forward to it every Friday! At least that’s the plan!


5 photos to inspire you to take a hike

I’m a nature lover if you haven’t already figured that out. I love being outside, especially in the wilderness. Living in the Pacific Northwest, there is no shortage of incredible hikes available within minutes of my home in Seattle. I don’t hike as often as I’d like to locally, but when I travel hiking is almost always on the agenda.

Here is a collection of photos from some beautiful hikes that I haven taken over the years. I chose these photos because they show off the trail itself or hikers, giving the viewer a sense of place and scale. Sorry, I don’t have the names of every trail. :/

  • Elena - Wow, you went to Iceland in winter! Yeah, you are right, those pictures make you wanna go out there and hike for a few days…At least that’s the effect on me :)ReplyCancel

    • traciehowe - Yes! It was March, but still considered winter there. The Iceland landscape has that effect in person too! I just wanted to keep wandering forever. Too bad we weren’t equipped for that.ReplyCancel

  • Andreja Jernejčič - Beautiful photos, which camera gear do you use?ReplyCancel

    • traciehowe - Thank you Adreja! I think I used both the Canon 5DMII and 5DMIII for these shots.ReplyCancel

  • Megsy - OMG, these photos are stunning!ReplyCancel

  • Chris - Wow, some stunning landscapes here!

    National Parks are certainly one thing that country of yours appears to do very well ;-)ReplyCancel

    • traciehowe - Oh yes indeed! We have some good ones here for sure! I should maybe think about doing a National Parks post. Hmmm… thanks for the idea! ;)ReplyCancel
