  • San Juans in a 16-foot outboard boat: an exotic island trip close to home - By Jason Griffith Nosing our way to the beach on Clark Island, I focused on the water, looking for rocks and trying to pick a clear path.

  • Parting Shot: Cellist on the Pacific Crest Trail - “I was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Snoqualmie Pass to Stevens Pass solo. This fellow was on a summer break from school and spending time exploring the West Coast. We started the same day and he would walk for a few miles then stop and play.
