Well, I came up with an ingenious idea for us Northwesterners and people who are traveling in the region: make a thread that is dedicated to events, locations, questions and general info about where to go shooting in the Pacific Northwest. Whether you shoot birds, people, landscapes, cars, street photography or what-have-you, this can be your go-to thread to find some new places to check out and bust out your gear!
The general idea, and of course there are no set rules here, is to post a picture of a place you've visited, or a bird you sited, or a good area for portraiture, whatever you want, and show/tell us where it is. A few people have mentioned using Google maps, which I think is great! We can all find out where to go a lot easier this way, especially in those hard to get to spots. I'll start us off and hope that others join in!
Also don't be afraid to post up events that are happening around the Northwest e.g. car shows, races, photography contests, concerts, outdoor performances, get togethers that we might want to have etc etc.
Bottom line, this thread is whatever we want to make it, but I hope that it will get people out there shooting more stuff and having a great time in the PNW! Thanks all!
Let me just reiterate, this isn't just for people in Washington and Oregon. I believe the PNW covers parts of Northern California, British Colombia. The point is to explore our area more and take pictures, so the more diverse the crowd, the better!
