There had to be a better way to get pedestrians over a set of busy train tracks and a four-lane highway in a scenic riverside city and Vancouver, Washington found the perfect solution. In 2008, with federal, state, and private funding, the Vancouver Land Bridge opened to the public. This 40-foot wide paved pathway links […]

It’s one of those moments in the life of a Pacific Northwest resident that everyone remembers — where they were, what they heard, what they thought it was. I was only a few months old when Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980 but from 500km away, people (like my mother) recall hearing the […]

Well before we first watched Miracle on 34th Street with my mother, she has longed to visit New York and holiday shop at Macy’s. She has traveled the world throughout her life but it wasn’t until this week that I was able to join her on her first-ever trip to The Big Apple. The purpose […]

What do you do with a historic elevated freight railway that spans over a mile along the West Side of Manhattan? Well you could turn it into a public park, High Line Park to be exact. Owned by the City of New York and maintained by the Friends of the High Line, this elevated public […]
