PNW, Travel, Outdoors, and More
Learn MoreSubscribe

Welcome to Pacific Northwest and Beyond! We’re a blog featuring a crunchy, granola-like mixture of travel, Pacific Northwest content, outdoor activities and gear, photography posts, stuff about foreign language, and more.

In our minds, these are all things related to exploring the world. But the PNW is our backyard and we love it here.

Of course, we’re not out exploring at the moment due to COVID-19 but we’re taking the time to clean up our blog and plan to get back to posting very soon.

One of the features on this website has been an events calendar. Currently, events have all gone online due to COVID-19 and we’ve added a few. But events on our calendar currently may be out of date — please doublecheck anything you see there.

A few things may have changed since then, but it remains a good cycling route with a good stop at Remlinger Farms at the mid-point (when they reopen), This route is also my first go-round with adding route sharing capacity. If you have a route you'd like to share with readers, you can do it!

Here it is, along with some advice about using the international keyboard and a refresher on French accents.
