New adventures, new stage!

Hey guys, I know it's been a ghost town over here, but I've been swamped with work as a wedding photographer as well as writing up adventures for EugeneOutdoors.com. I'm about to start putting up some sweet adventure blogs with awesome photos so you should come on over and check it out! Eugene is a beautiful city full of hikes, biking trails, rivers to raft and I just finished my Scuba certification.

Also I've been posting adventure photos over on my corresponding Facebook pages, Lacey LaDuke Photography and EugeneOutdoors. Here's a little teaser, come give me some love!

Proxy Falls - McKenzie River Highway

I've been really busy lately with a move to Oregon yet still working in Washington. Despite the inconvenience this has opened a whole new chapter of adventures for me! Before I moved down earlier this fall I made a trip to Proxy Falls along the McKenzie Highway. If you're passing through and don't take a moment to stop and hike up to it you are really missing out! Check out the link above for the article I wrote for Eugene Outdoors to get the adventure specifics.

Joshua Tree National Park

Wow, what a whirlwind this winter has been so far! I'm a few adventures behind still and wanted to share a few quick snaps from Joshua Tree National Park in November before I go bury myself under a pile of work for the next month! They've been having 80 degree weather this December while I'm up here in Spokane freezing my butt off. It really isn't fair, is it? Regardless, enjoy my adventure by taking a look through my lens.

What's a J-Tree post without a Joshua Tree?
This next photo was an extra special treat. I rarely see sheep on my adventures and there's guys were only about a mile off the road on a popular loop trail. They were weary of humans, but not nearly as much as the ones I have seen up north.

Honestly I can't wait to go back, I could spend days or even weeks exploring the modestly sized playground. Next time I'm not going to forget my climbing gear though! The granite there is otherworldly!
