West Sound Guide to the Outdoors – Winter 2013

The coldest season of the year has started — fortunately we live in Washington.

Yes, it gets gray during our winter, but the mild days and nearby mountains open the outdoors to a range of activities until the flowers bloom again. Whether you’re looking to ski and snowshoe or get wet in Puget Sound, you’ll find a day to do that around here. And West Sound Guide to the Outdoors can help.

This issue has advice on getaways like the New Dungeness Spit Lighthouse, where a special kind of solitude can be had through a “lighthouse keepers” program. There’s advice from couples who RV year-round, and an deeper dive, so to speak, into Hood Canal’s relationship with the beautiful and elusive giant Pacific octopus, which winter scuba divers know well.
