Wenatchee Crest Snowshoe at Blewett Pass

Wenatchee Crest Snowshoe at Blewett Pass

Longtime KOMO-TV news anchor Dan Lewis is a guest contributor to Seattle Bloggers. Since his retirement from television, he’s found a passion for hiking, snowshoeing, and traveling. If he can go somewhere with his camera — that’s where you’ll find him. Not to mention, he’s also Tim’s dad. In this post, Dan writes about his experience on the Wenatchee Crest snowshoe. Wenatchee Crest is located at Blewett Pass. At first, I thought it was too far away from Seattle — but it’s not really. From downtown, the drive is just a little more than an hour and a half. From the eastside, say Sammamish or Issaquah, it’s 1:15. And if you’re looking for a winter wonderland, this definitely fits the bill. The views are unlimited and awesome. On a clear day you’ll be able to see Mount Rainier to the south, Glacier Peak to the north, the Enchantments to the west, and for most of the trail you will have views of the Wenatchee Mountains. The day I went...

Clipper Vacations | Hoppy Hour Bike Tour in Victoria

Clipper Vacations | Hoppy Hour Bike Tour in Victoria

It’s a pretty simple equation: Clipper Vacations + a Hoppy Hour Bike Tour full of craft beer tasting = an awesome time in Victoria, British Columbia. There’s no easier way to get to Victoria than through Clipper Vacations. The Pacific Northwest vacation experts offer a number of transportation, tours and accommodation packages to customers across the world. The Victoria Clipper is an easy, quick and relaxing way to travel. The high-speed boat goes as fast as 30 knots, and takes less than three hours to get to Victoria from Seattle (or vice-versa). So long, #Seattle. Next stop: Victoria! #DiscoverClipper pic.twitter.com/KO6gw5ZWbz — Seattle Bloggers (@SeattleBlgrs) April 22, 2016 There are no assigned seats on the Victoria Clipper. The earlier you book your trip, the better boarding number you receive — which means the better seat you get on the boat. We lucked out and got a window seat both to and from Victoria. Once on board the Clipper, you’re allowed to walk around, check out the outdoor deck, or just kick back...

Seattle Bloggers | 2013 Year in Review

Seattle Bloggers | 2013 Year in Review

It’s hard to believe the year is winding down, but here we are writing the Seattle Bloggers | 2013 Year in Review. It’s been an amazing year filled with incredible adventures and surprises. We only started Seattle Bloggers in June, so this should technically be the Half Year in Review, but we feel like we created enough memories to easily fill 365 days. From best food to biggest surprises, we selected eight categories for our Seattle Bloggers | 2013 Year in Review. It wasn’t easy to do (since there were so many awesome options to choose from), but we both picked our favorite experience in every category. Without further ado…here is the best of the best from 2013! SEATTLE BLOGGERS | 2013 YEAR IN REVIEW Best Food & Drink Tove: I love being in the kitchen and one of my favorite ‘kitchen’ experiences this year was learning how to brew my own beer at Gallaghers’ Where U Brew.  With more than 50 recipes, all of the ingredients you need, and a helpful...
