Northwest Travel Magazine: Get Inside and Play

16 03 2016

My latest feature for Northwest Travel & Life covers some of the best indoor entertainment options for the wet, Northwest winter. From the article:

“Winter need not be a reason to shut down until the farmers markets return. Our long rainy season (or snowy, depending on where you live) is a major contributing factor to the lush beauty that we enjoy year -round. But it can also send you indoors, clamoring for a latte and your knitting needles. Let’s face it, there’s only so much coffee you can drink or hats you can knit. Sure you want to eat, drink, and be merry. But you also want to stay active and keep your mind and body healthy and engaged. In this part of the world, it’s not just the great outdoors that makes it Shangri-La. It’s the things we do inside; the creative ways we cultivate and continue living a Northwest lifestyle. Indoor winter adventures are very much a part of that way of life, just with four walls and a roof.”

Cascade Journal: Trail Stories – Oregon hikes for history buffs

20 08 2015

My latest feature for Cascade Journal Magazine is about some of Oregon’s best historic hikes.

“Oregon’s world-class hiking trails are one reason many of us hang our hats here. The state also lays claim to an abundance of intriguing and significant chapters in human and natural history. These events leave their mark on both the landscape and its inhabitants’ culture, creating a destination to explore that’s a feast for both the eyes and the imagination. Here are a handful of hikes from around Central Oregon and a little farther afield that showcase the beauty of the region as well as the backstories that helped define it.”

Picture of the Week: North Wildwood Trail

6 04 2015

The northern end of Forest Park’s Wildwood Trail is my favorite segment of the entire park. There are fewer visitors, no invasive species, and you get scenes like this; where the park is trying to show off every possible shade of green in every conceivable texture:-)


Picture of the Week: The Cape Meares Lighthouse

30 03 2015

Thanks to a new writing contract, I’ll be spending a lot of time in Tillamook County this year. Last week I visited the Tillamook Coast; specifically the Cape Meares Lighthouse. It was magic. In addition to perfect weather, grey whales were putting on a show as they migrated north. We were treated to several breaches from the lighthouse viewpoint.
