About us

More About PNW&Beyond

Pacific Northwest is a journal of PNW places, travel, local things to do, local events, photography, book reviews, and a small shop. We started out intending to be a travel blog, but found more motivation (and more time and money) to write about local adventures than places abroad. Fortunately, we live in a beautiful area with water, mountains, and lots to do!

You might find, in our pages, links to recommended events, reviews of books by local authors, travel posts, entries about individual local places, wildlife — or whatever we happen to do or that catches our interest.
