Similar but more old-school petition effort was led by 20-something farmers Daniel Bowman Simon and Casey Gustowarow. They spent the late summer and fall traveling the nation in an old school bus stocked with spices and sporting a green roof and collected more than 10,000 signatures. Whether the new administration will dig the idea remains to be seen. Doiron was hoping for action in the first 100 days, timing that makes sense for planting in Washington's relatively mild climate. He was hopeful...

These great views of the local landscape inspired the construction of two lookouts that are connected by an orthogonal path marked with logs. The site belongs to a local family who had been involved with the local logging industry for decades and who sought to find a different use for part of their land. Tired of indiscriminate logging practices and facing a devastated area, they were looking for an activity that would attract tourists. They created a place for ziplining in the...
