The Pacific North West A splendid show of natural beauty.
As I travel on the modern four lane highways of the Pacific North West, I cannot help but to think of the difficulties of the first European explorers as they travel through these magnificent lands. I look at the beauty that surrounds me and wonder what the first explorers were thinking as they saw the beauty of this majestc place when it was still in a more primeval stage.
