I'm visiting Washington's Olympic Peninsula for a week or so. With year-long snow-capped mountains, rain forests and a solid martime culture it's quite far away from life in the desert southwest. And as much as I enjoy desert life, each time I come up and visit this area it grows on me more and more. I don't believe I'd mind long stretches of cold cloud cover, tall trees and moss-covered...everything. This may just be because I don't live here, however. What I do know for certain is, I could totally live on that boat.
