We don't stop hiking because we grow old, we grow old because we stop hiking. -- Finis Mitchell

The Northwest is awesome

For anyone who has never visited Seattle or the Northwest you have no idea how much you are missing.

The area is just amazing.

  1. It's been a long time goal to visit Seattle. Now that I am in Utah I am so much closer than before (use to live in Ohio). I will be there soon enough! Beautiful!

  2. I've only ever passed through Seattle. I have always wanted to spend more time there though. I work the winters as a caretaker at a remote lodge on Kodiak Island though (doing it right now), so I definitely know what you mean about the PNW. Couldn't imagine a more perfect part of the world. Love your blog btw just found it.

  3. You're right. It's an amazing city. Great vid to showcase it. Must make plans to visit.

  4. The PNW simply rocks. I grew up in Bellingham and miss the hell outta that place now. This is an awesome video, thanks for sharing!

  5. Like everyone else commenting above...I really need to get up there sometime. It is simply beautiful. Some beautiful shots of water in this video...Have you done any kayaking lately? I have a kayaking glove I'm giving away on My Life Outoors if your interested?
