My PNW weekend adventure

In June, I had the chance to visit Seattle, Washington, for an Alaska Airlines photo project. My goal was simple, explore the city and its surrounding wilderness. Check out @AlaskaAir #iflyalaska on Instagram for even more travel inspiration.

Seattle, and the entire PNW, is known for its work life balance. It's possible to hold down a 9-5, but explore nearby mountain wilderness and ocean playgrounds. After my visit, I think it lives up to its reputation quite nicely. I stayed in an Airbnb in the city, and enjoyed wandering the water front and exploring the city. But I spent most of my time outside.

Stop 1: Sunrise hike Where: Buckhorn Mountain, on the Olympic Peninsula. Time: 6hr round trip hike, 8 hrs total from Seattle.

Stop 2: Mountain Biking Where: Tiger Mountain Time: 2 hr round drive from Seattle.

Stop 3: Kayaking Where: Don Armini Boat Launch, West Seattle Time: 2-3 hours, round trip

Stop 4: Around Seattle Where: Gas Works Park, Waterfront, and West Seattle Time: 3 hours total

Big thanks to Alaska Airlines for inviting me to experience Seattle. It proved to be the ideal weekend destination. Check out their Instagram page for more travel stoke! #iflyalaska #epiXtrip
