Exploring Dash Point State Park

Exploring Dash Point State Park

I moved to the greater Seattle area in early September and immediately went out and started exploring everything this state has to offer. I quickly realized just how incredible the State Park system is here. The abundance of public land combined with its tendency to...

Seattle Bars Serving Cocktails To-Go

Seattle Bars Serving Cocktails To-Go

Boy, with the way 2020 is shaping up so far, I think we could all use a drink. One of the things I miss the most from pre-coronavirus times is treating myself to a cocktail over the weekend. Sure, Washington has plenty of great local breweries and wineries, but...

A Hike Through Federation Forest State Park

A Hike Through Federation Forest State Park

A few miles past Enumclaw, along the winding path carved by Route 410, Federation Forest sits nestled by the mighty White River. Though perhaps not as showy or intimidating as other parks around Mt. Rainier, Federation Forest State Park offers a quiet refuge where...

Visiting Wallaby Ranch in Fall City

Visiting Wallaby Ranch in Fall City

Wallaby Ranch is easily one of the most surprisingly outstanding experiences I’ve had on my day trips in Washington state. It’s not every day, month or even year that you get the opportunity to have such an intimate encounter with an animal so traditionally thought of...

Conquering the Iron Goat Trail

Conquering the Iron Goat Trail

Do you believe in ghosts? I do. Though, I’m not the type to go seeking them out on purpose. And as far as believing a hike could be haunted? For me, that is a stretch. Though I will use any excuse — even ghost hunting — if it means a walk in the woods. The text from...

Spending a Day in Seattle’s Green Lake Neighborhood

Spending a Day in Seattle’s Green Lake Neighborhood

One of my favorite aspects of living in the Seattle area is all of the different experiences you are surrounded with.  The Green Lake neighborhood is just north of downtown Seattle. A quick 15-minute drive will take you away from the high rises and bring you to this...
