This holiday weekend, would you rather spend your day off inside a crowded shopping mall frantically searching for deals, or enjoying the peaceful sounds of singing birds, fall leaves crunching below your boots and the fresh smell of pine trees?  

We're joining the national movement to "opt outside." Explore the interactive map and photo collage below to see where our team opts outside in Washington.

Join us and opt outside! Tag your photos on social media with #OptOutside and #northwestnature. We may share your stories on our map!
