November Sunshine

November is generally our stormiest month here in the Pacific Northwest, with epic windstorms that have brought down trees and even a couple floating bridges in years past.  But right now we're blessed with a stretch of brilliant blue skies and crisp chilly days extending into next week.

A couple days ago some transient orcas swung into Puget Sound near Seattle and treated many here to a fantastic show of hunting off Bainbridge Island (although some of seals met their demise in the process). Others were making their first turns of the new ski season up at Crystal Mountain. 

We're blessed here in the Northwest with so many great things to do and see in our natural and urban worlds.

I'm on the road to Oregon and will post more everyday adventures soon.  I hope you, too, get out and enjoy what's looking to be a glorious Northwest weekend over the whole region.

Happy trails!

I am a new reader to your blog and am so glad I found it! I am new to the PNW. In 2012 I moved from the Midwest to Seattle and have loved every day so far! Thanks for posting great hikes and ideas of places to see and visit.
