The Pacific Northwest is famous for spectacular mountains, the Columbia River Gorge, the Puget Sound, and of course, the unparalleled Pacific Coast. World class skiing, snowboarding, climbing and windsurfing are all less than a couple hours from Vancouver. And forested lands for camping, hiking and fishing are well maintained within the county itself.
