Northwest Travel & Life: Beer for the People

20 03 2017

I loved writing this story. Some of the best times I’ve had on the road were at these very establishments. From the article:

“Good people drink good beer.” The ancient Celtic axiom popularized by Hunter S. Thompson may or may not ring true in every instance. But that’s not the point. The Northwest is filled with justifiably proud people. We are proud of the things we do, the things we make and the places we call home. Smaller communities, in particular, rally around a source of local pride. One of the things we do better than most is beer.

There are brewpubs and alehouses that are the heart of some Northwest towns. They are hubs where families and friends meet. They are places that out of towners take special trips to experience. They are institutions, where good people go to drink good beer. Here are just a few of our small-town favorites.

Northwest Travel & Life: Explore the Columbia River Gorge Lewis & Clark Trail Scenic Byway

11 01 2017

It’s always fun to write about my favorite place in the world, the Columbia River Gorge. From the article:

“Over the course of roughly 80 miles, the Gorge, a National Scenic Area, switches over from temperate rainforest to desert. Every turn in the river, every bend rounded, introduces a new microclimate or landscape. It’s stunning and easily experienced. From west to east, a trip along Washington’s Highway 14 will show you firsthand.”

Northwest Travel Magazine: Driving the Cascade Loop

In my first cover feature, I recount one of my favorite trips on memory – the drive along Washington’s Cascade Loop Scenic Highway. From the article:

A journey along the Cascade Loop Scenic Highway provides a chance to experience all the things that typify the Northwest, all that we hold dear. It’s our past, present and future. It’s our culture, and a tangible display of beauty and bounty.”
