  • About

Pacific Northwest, self-conscious region in the far north west of the united states. A beautiful and unspoilt landscape and some fine regional products, including food and wine, have brought a sense of pride to the states of washington, oregon, and idaho. Comparisons with california, the state to the immediate south, are habitually made.
