Trayvax at Recreation Northwest EXPO

Did you know that people spend more than $700 million each year on outdoor recreation in Whatcom County? People flock to this area for the recreation that abounds from the mountains in the east to the bay in the west. It seems like there’s something for everyone to enjoy out and about around here, which is why Recreation Northwest - an organization devoted to stewardship, education and outdoor fun - exists.

Adventure Story: Costa Rica

                           Two weeks in Costa Rica! Can’t think of a better way to de-stress after the holidays. My brother, best friend, and I found a cheap flight and travelled around this tropical paradise. We travelled through Liberia, Playas del Coco, Puntarenas, Manuel Antonio, and Monteverdi.

We explored rainforests and cloud forests finding many amazing animals including the elusive Quetzal. Zip lining was one of the most memorable events.              We signed up for a set of 8 zip...
