Whether or not one is convinced there is an environmental crisis caused by global warming, and without concerning oneself over whether such a phenomenon is man-made or a cyclic norm, there is no question US weather has been crazy of late. The normal patterns of warm areas and colder areas have held relatively normal, but it is the extremes that have made the last few years so different

With record breaking heat spells changing vacation fun in the sun spots to nearly survival endurance endeavors, the Northwest has maintained a natural cool climate, free of humidity and strength draining heat.

With salmon runs, forests of truly astounding size and beauty and the magnificence of the Olympic mountain range, this is a haven for the outdoor loving.

Hiking is a primary activity, and there are trails to accommodate every level, from the novice hiker who needs to keep those hiking boots on asphalt and still see nature, to the adventurous who wish to test themselves on Mount Rainier, no one should go home disappointed.

Harvesting the bounties of the sea is also a major attraction, with clams, oysters and fish of myriad varieties available to those so predisposed.

Without too much effort, one can be ready to indulge in fishing, clam digging or oyster gathering the day after arrival.

Fishing deserves a special note here, while people fish all over the US in fresh and salt water, there is little to compare with tangling with a good sized salmon.

When the day is done and one has been fortunate enough to catch one or more the reward is in eating one of the most flavorful fish in existence.
