Seattle Outdoors

Seattle acts as an awesome base for the outdoor activities in the PacificNorthWest (PNW) region. I have been in love with the PNW ever since I have moved to west coast. It was only my 3rd day since I had started living in Seattle that I got to visit North Cascades National park with a bunch of people. It was splendid – we were treated with green mountains and turquoise waters. I didn’t have much information about Washington state before coming but now I don’t want to live anywhere else in the US. I have continued attending meetups and exploring the nature and it has been a fantastic journey. I am listing the activities(mostly hikes) I have done with links to a post of its own and hopefully I will keep updating it. Some of the activities are GPS tracked.
