The blog post about "Ten outdoor destinations with everything" did not include "Leavenworth, Washington" --- which is now accessible by rail and Amtrak right out of Seattle! In fact, Leavenworth is a mere 113 miles from metropolitan Seattle, so you can easily visit for the day, plan for an extended stay and contact one of the dozens of lodges, rentals, inns or retreats.
Leavenworth has the ideal weather conditions throughout the year for all kinds of outdoor adventures --- river rafting on the Wenatchee River, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, road-biking, innertubing, paragliding, kayaking and trail running. You are able to be outdoor active all year long in Leavenworth. http://orionexp.com
