I've only just recently relocated to the Northwest (I was hoping to be in Seattle but company changed my location), but I'm close enough to love it. One place I've been for one of the best meals ever is Ray's Boathouse. It was really great fish and right on the water at the edge of the city.

Re: The Dempster Highway: a Drive to the Arctic Coast of Canada

This is amazing! I'm far too adventureless to attempt a trip like this, but your pictures and descriptions make me wish I were there. And to think, before your piece on Tuktoyaktuk, I had never even thought of the expression "Arctic Coast!"

It sounds like a great adventure! Thanks for sharing it with us. This road trip has been on my bucket list for some time, but sounds like it's worth delaying until the road to Tuk is completed. I've heard fall is a nice time to go. Not only is the tundra vividly colored, but there are no mosquitos (frozen to death by evening frost). Know any downsides to this, Tom?

Hiking to Sol Duc Falls in Olympic National Park

7daytrip.com ·
Olympic National Park is home to several short hikes with magnificent payoffs. The 1.6-mile trek to-and-from Sol Duc Falls is near the top of Olympic NP's long list of great trails. The hike is well-marked, has minimal elevation gain, is rated as "easy," and the payoff at Sol Duc Falls is an epic stunner. It is best used between May and September. If you're traveling to Olympic NP, you should not pass up this hike. For additional information on visiting Olympic NP, visit the trip itinerary...
