I’m delighted to be writing freelance for a recently launched tourism-based publication, The Crossing Guide. I was pleased to cover for this quarter’s issue my experience with Mountain School at North Cascades Institute and all their fantastic environmental education and recreation programs, as well as the Lynden Pioneer Museum. Earlier this year I wrote about the 12th Annual Northwest birding festival in Blaine, WA, Wings Over Water. This publication is free and distributed throughout lower mainland British Columbia, Whatcom, Skagit, Island, and Snohomish Counties. Check it out when you get the chance.
