Summer Adventures Across the Mighty Pacific Northwest

Labor Day? Fall? Bahhh.

Record-breaking days in a row  in the 70’s. More days in the 90’s than I can count. Following a rain-drenched spring and a couple weeks of smoke and haze from the BC wildfires, I’m not quite ready to let summer slip away.

Go climb a mountain. Hop on a Kenmore Air seaplane flight. Go jump in a lake or kayak around the Sound. Go see the San Juans. Hop on a bike. Take a weekend jaunt up to Victoria. Or, simply sit and stare at the sun. Whatever you do, take advantage of the end to this incredible PNW summer…we’ve earned it this year. Cheers!
