Summer is upon us, and with it comes long days, temperatures that make us want to jump into the nearest swimming hole, and the desire to drink delicious brews on our favorite patios. If you need a little sunshine or adventure in your day, here are a few of our favorite Outdoor Instagram accounts from the Pacific Northwest that will most certainly inspire you to get outdoors and find your next adventure. There are so many great feeds out there that we couldn't list them all. We're always sharing photos from the outdoor community, so tag your photos with #OutdoorProject for a chance to be featured!


Not only does Chris have an amazing eye, he has a special way of making you feel small (in a good way). His feed reminds us of the simple beauty and power of nature. 









Roaming around the Pacific Northwest, Heather shares nothing but love for the outdoors, her family, and adventure on her feed.










From wildlife and wildflowers to waterfalls and Mount Hood, you won't be disappointed in what you find in this feed.










If stunning landscapes captured by a gentle eye in dramatic light that is topped with a soft, welcoming look are your thing, search no more. 









Logan's feed is full of jaw-dropping images and inspirational sayings to fuel the adventure spirit. His account will most likely leave you asking, "Where is that?" or saying, "I want to go there!"










When Ben isn't taking photos from a plane or helicopter, he's taking them from his skis or bike. His feed offers some amazing perspectives on adventure. And his dog seems to enjoy the views, too. 









Everyday is waterfall day when it comes to Angela. Her endless feed of beautiful cascading waterfalls will easily wash all your troubles away. 









Jenny's feed makes you want to be friends with her. Whether it's an adventure to Central Oregon, to an unknown waterfall, or to somewhere you've been before, she shares a beautiful perspective on the outdoors. 









Traveling all over the west, Brent reminds us to always have fun and to not be afraid to let your adventurous side take hold.
