North by Northwest

I just came back from a trip to the Pacific Northwest, where I was absolutely floored by the region’s natural beauty. From dizzying summits to skyscrap-ing evergreens, America’s wondrous topography is part of what defines her greatness. I’m a city girl myself, but my vacation to Washington and Oregon, having coincided with Earth Day, reminded me once again that the environment is worth saving.

The view from this lofty bridge connecting Fidalgo Island to Whidbey Island simply took my breath away.

A waterfront community in the Seattle suburbs, Edmonds boasts quiet beaches and unparalleled views of the Puget Sound.

Located just half an hour outside of Portland, the water here spills out from Larch Mountain, dropping 620 feet before flowing into the Columbia River.
