  1. Well, I had a random thought and it made me think that I wanted to rank every state from favorite to least, or maybe attempt to with my lack of knowledge on specific states. Most of my opinions that are closer to the top and bottom of the lists are stronger than the ones closer to the middle of the list. It's a pretty rough list considering I've only really lived in two of them, and I've probably only visited about 20. Washington Hawaii Vermont Colorado Idaho Wyoming Oregon Iowa Kansas New Mexico Wisconsin West Virginia South Dakota North Dakota Indiana Ohio Illinois North Carolina Michigan Nevada South Carolina Nebraska Arizona Rhode Island Delaware New Hampshire Maryland Massachusetts Pennsylvania Oklahoma Texas Minnesota Montana Florida Virginia Conneticut Maine New York New Jersey Missouri Lousiana Kentucky Tennessee Utah Arkansas Georgia Alaska Mississippi California Alabama
  2. From Thursday, June 16th to Saturday, June 18th, we backpacked into the Ancient Lakes in eastern Washington's Channeled Scablands region and made a 2-night basecamp to explore the area further. We drove in from Oregon hoping to experience a little bit of what eastern Washington has to offer. It was beyond breathtaking! Day 1: We hiked in from the lower trailhead up to Ancient Lakes to camp for two nights. We wanted to take the north cliffside trail, but decided to take the "main" trail into the lakes for the first day instead. Wildflowers lined this trail. We hiked in about two hours before sunset; the colors on the sage-covered fields and rocky cliffsides came alive with color! We didn't see anybody along the hike either, so we had plenty of solitude! We camped at the far end of Ancient Lakes at the second campsite below the back cliff. We were the only ones there that night too. The mosquitos were bad, so be warned! Not as bad as some places I've been, but still an annoyance. But the beauty more than makes up for it. It was about a five hour drive to the trailhead from Portland, Oregon. We got to the trailhead around 6:30 PM, two and a half hours before sunset. The view of the Ancient Lakes as viewed during sunset (taken at 1.9 miles in). More wildflowers! These particular ones were seen all along the first day's hike. View a 360° Photo Sphere from this spot. Rugged cliffs lit up by the sunset. Day 2: On the second day, a few campers came in to camp below us. We went on a day hike up onto the south cliffside and to a vantage point overlooking Dusty Lake. The trail was easy to follow, wildflower-strewn (tons of flowers!), easy to hike, all except for the last tiny section descending the canyon wall. It was steep and slippery, covered in loose scree, fine dust, and talus. Nothing too tricky, but can be a bit slippery. After getting to the bottom, it was a gentle coasting up and down over grassy, wildflower-covered hills back to camp. Round-headed Buckweat carpeting the slopes above the Ancient Lakes. View a 360° Photo Sphere from this viewpoint! This hike featured many different types of wildflowers. Panorama taken from the Dusty Lake Viewpoint. Another image to possibly be submitted to Equestria Daily's "Ponies Around the World" event. Looking back at the way we came. Once we got back to camp, it started to cloud over. Around 10 P.M., it started to rain—lightly at first, gentle though heavy by the next morning. The waterfall across the lake from our tent. Now that I look closer, I can kind of see a faint trail climbing up the left side of the falls. Day 3: On the third day, we hiked out in the rain via the "shortcut" trail, which hugs the north cliff-face (the same trail we wanted to hike in by). It was a wildflower-strewn hike, but the brushy and narrow path meant our pants and shoes got soaked very quickly (not an issue since we were wearing quick-drying synthetics/running shoes, however ). It passed right below a seasonal waterfall and a large boulder/erratic. Hiking out in the rain along the cliff-side trail. While yes, there is farmland surrounding the Ancient Lakes coulee basin, we couldn't really see them from our campsite at the lakes. It feels as if they aren't really there! As if it were sage-covered desert for miles and miles! Along the hike through and above the cliff-faces, you can see more of the farms, but they aren't really a distraction/detraction to the "wilderness" experience, in my opinion. You will be gawking at the amazing views that the Ancient Lakes have to offer. There are also tons (and tons) of campsites, so I guess either this area must get super crowded/full on some weekends, or there's just a lot of space to spread around and choose your site. Most sites seem to be pretty flat and have large fire rings (I guess people bring in their wood?). Some sites even have stone benches to sit on. This is a super easy backpacking trip or day hike, so even families with children could make it. Highly recommended! Photo Sphere Virtual Hike: I took a total of 16 photo spheres! You can view the photo spheres here to take a "virtual hike." They are linked together in the same style as Google Maps Street View.
  3. So now that the summer of 2017 is in full swing, I have been hard at work getting to various places with my ponies. I also recently got a Flutterbat plush to take with me, so I'm excited for that! But first, a few from last year. Just like the photo of Crystal Lake in the original post, this was taken from our campsite at Crystal Lake. The view is of Mount Adams' west face. The Daring Do engraved compass was bought at Everfree NW last year. This was taken from our campsite at Crystal Lake as well, but this time looking north towards Mount Rainier and the Goat Rocks. The view was spectacular! For my last hike of the summer, I made the long 6 hour drive up to Mount Baker and Artist Point to hike the Ptarmigan Ridge Trail. Here is Rainbow Dash in front of Mount Shuksan. Mount Baker is directly opposite of Shuksan (so behind me as I was taking this photo). May, 2017: For my very first hike of the year, I headed out to Columbia Hills State Park in eastern Washington, just north of the Oregon border along the Columbia River Gorge. We did a 7 mile loop hike, finishing off on the Vista Loop Trail. Here is Flutterbat enjoying the fields upon fields of yellow Western Basalmroot and purple Lupine characteristic of the eastern Columbia River Gorge. In the near distance is the mighty Columbia River, the largest river on the west coast. For the second hike of the year, I ventured up the Herman Creek Trail for around 5 miles (10 miles round trip). At the turnaround point for the day, I photographed Rarity among the lush green forests characteristic of northern Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge. For the last hike in may, Fluttershy and I hiked the Dry Creek Trail in southern Washington near the Trapper Creek Wilderness. Here she is enjoying the relaxing sound of the babbling creek. The trail is relatively flat as it follows the gentle uphill grade of the creek. To finish off, here is a photo of my newest custom Flutterbat plush (made by LanaCraft) with my larger Fluttershy plush. I'll be taking the smaller one hiking with me for the rest of this summer.
  4. I'm creating this topic to post some of my recent landscape photography work. To see more of my work, visit ElementalFX.smugmug.com. (Site in-dev.) To join a community of brony hikers, visit Everfree Hikers. Over the last few years, I've gone on over a hundred hikes. My highest mileage in a single year was 123 miles (cumulative). My eventual, longterm goal will be to hike from Mexico to Canada via the Pacific Crest Trail. During my many adventures, I got into doing landscape photography. Hiking Log (Updated Regularly) My Hike Map (Interactive) Photography Around the Pacific Northwest Crystal Majesty Crystal Lake, Mount Adams Wilderness, Washington. Painted Cove John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Oregon. Changing Light Sunset on Mount Jefferson from the Pacific Crest Trail, Oregon. Ancient Lakes Sunset on the Ancient Lakes in eastern Washington. For Ponies Around the World (2017 Submission) Crystal Lake in the Mt. Adams Wilderness; will be submitted to EQD's annual PATW event in July. Home for the Night Sunset from Adams Glacier Meadow in the Mount Adams Wilderness, Washington. I'll add more photos to this post as time goes on.
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn:_Washington's_Spies The show has been on for a while (in fact it just ended) and hasn't be the most popular series but has a devoted cult following (which I'm a part of). While it plays fast and loose with historical accuracy (and some illogical story moments) it had really strong character development and it's probably the only serious modern drama about the American Revolution we're gonna get (no, Mel Gibson's "The Patriot" doesn't count) Has anyone else here seen it?
  6. In mid-August, we hiked the Bird Creek Meadows Loop from Bird Lake, with a small side-trip to Hellroaring Overlook. This was our second visit to the incredibly beautiful Mount Adams Recreation Area. On our last visit, we hiked up to Iceberg Lake via the Bird Creek Meadows Trailhead, along the way passing Hellroaring Overlook and 30+ mountain goats. See that trip report here. It was incredibly beautiful! We got to hike the loop in mid-August of 2015, just before the Cougar Creek Fire swept through the area this past summer. Much of Bird Creek Meadows was spared from the fire, but everything below Bluff Lake, including Bird Lake, was consumed by the fire. We hiked the loop clockwise, starting on the Bird Lake Trail and ending on the Bluff Lake Trail. Opening Photo: Small mountainside stream at Bird Creek Meadows Here is a video/short film I put together of this area, filmed during this hike and the previous hike up to Iceberg Lake in 2014. osHWIRWwXWc Summary Distance: 5.67 mi Elevation SRTM Elevation Gain: 1149.88 ft Elevation Loss: 1149.88 ft Min Elevation: 5597.11 ft Max Elevation: 6502.62 ft ------Maps------ Here is the topo map found on the Oregon Hikers Field Guide. Read the PH/OH hiking guide here ------Trip Report------ We started at the trailhead at Bird Lake Campground. This is Bird Lake before the fire. The Trailhead: Bird Lake Trail Crossing Crooked Creek: Crossing Crooked Creek again: Crooked Creek Falls! This falls is around 50' tall, I believe. It is a gorgeous waterfall; one of my favorites on Mount Adams. Wildflowers along a mountain stream: Soon after the falls, we reached the junction with the Round the Mountain Trail: Small staircase waterfall along the Round the Mountain Trail: That dramatic lighting! I love hiking under this kind of sky. Wildflowers, oh my! We passed a small pond along the Round the Mountain Trail We then took Trail #67 to the Hellroaring Canyon Overlook: Upon nearing the overlook, we came upon a nice patch of flowers in full bloom alongside a little stream: Soon Mount Adams and the massive Hellroaring Canyon unfolded before us. Mount Adams remained mostly hidden, but the dramatic clouds and epic canyon vista made up it. The ridge on the far right is the Ridge of Wonders, and the large waterfall at center is unofficially called Hellroaring Basin Falls Little Mount Adams prominently marks the southeastern end of the Ridge of Wonders This is what the Hellroaring Overlook looks like on a clear, sunny day: Photo taken in 2014 After Hellroaring Overlook, it was getting too dark for regular photos.

  7. So, this coming year of Everfree I am going to be putting together my first cosplays. I have three ideas that I wish to make: Classy Pinkie, Rocker Dashie, and a Vinyl Scratch. I have a good idea how I want to make them, but my problem I have run into is where I could get good cutie mark patches. Anyone have any suggestions?
  8. Hello! I just returned from Washington, D.C. I saw many things, including (but not limited to) Jefferson Memorial, Abrahalm Linoln Memorial, Capitol Building, the House of the Temple, a dissapointing Library of Congress, and more! I don't mean to brag or create jealousy.
  9. Made yet another wallpaper; non-pony related this time. This one based on one of my favorite National Hockey League teams, the Washington Capitals. The colors, logos and design in general are based on these jerseys they used from 1995-2007, one of my favorites in the history of the NHL. Illustration by Andrew M. Greenstein, The unofficial NHL Uniform Database Anywho, I think I'm definitely getting better at these, it's really fun. You guys can look forward to more in the future!
