Nowhere Like Northwest

As a born and bred, blood and soil Montana girl, the Pacific Northwest never fails to surprise and impress me with its beauty. You’d think, growing up in a place where Glacier, Yellowstone, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness are basically in my back yard, I’d be able to get used to the beauty of the Northwest. Alas, this is not the case. The misty rain-drenched forests and the foggy green landscapes of Washington and Oregon are something completely and continually new to me, and something I don’t think I’ll ever find anything but fascinating. There is nowhere like the northwest, and even when it rains for 2 weeks straight, I think at least it isn’t snowing, and I go right back to loving this place.
