Photographer Spotlight: Evan Kubena

Stepping out of your comfort zone as a scout can be the most rewarding aspect of the whole program. It feels risky but can result in your fondest, most exciting memories. My favorite memory? Swimming in a North Cascades river in 90 degree weather, laying on the forested river bank soaking in the fresh air and PNW summer sun!

Evan’s Field Scout Trip Highlights

Teal Creek Camp

Turning Earth Farms, OR

This was like living in a storybook. So calm, warm, and golden.

The Landing

Index WA Skykomish River, WA

The Landing at Mt. Index is my number one. How about 16 acres of riverfront beach under a mountain to yourself?

Bandon Farmstay

Bandon, OR

Dreamy tiny rustic cabins on the Oregon Coast are trendy for a reason- they are amazing.

The Arboretum

Bear Canyon West, Washington
