From its striking natural beauty and immersive outdoor activities to towns steeped in a shared history of interdependence, there’s a lot to love about Seattle NorthCountry. Knowing how to travel sustainably around it is vital if we want to enjoy this region for years to come.
Here are 7 ways we can do just that.
1. Join a hiking or carpool hiking group
There are literally dozens of Facebook groups, Meet-ups, and clubs where you can find new hiking buddies to carpool with. Washington Trails Association has a great list to help kickstart your search for the best group.
2. Support local businesses
Protecting the places we care about means supporting the local economy. Get what you need from where you’ll be visiting if at all possible. When visitors buy local communities thrive, and strive to preserve local attractions.
