Pacific Northwest

& Beyond

A journal of Puget Sound and PNW places, nature, photography and things to do and see…
and sometimes beyond!

About us

More About PNW&Beyond

Pacific Northwest is a journal of PNW places, things to do, outdoors, photography — and pretty much anything that fits under the category of “PNW, travel, the outdoors, photography,,,”

So you won’t find posts about, for instance, crafts here (unless it’s a post about a local craftsperson or a project that is very locale-specific). But you will find a shop with some handmade items, blog posts, “PNWWiki” mini-entries, a small events calendar, and some photography galleries.

I post when I can and when I feel motivated and welcome (some) community contributions.

Thanks for visiting.

We wanted a place to put miniposts…so we added a glossary/wiki section about local places, nature, & more.


We have a small shop feauring mostly handmade items with a PNW, travel, or outdoorsy theme.
