Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning writer and Washington native Ericka Chickowski provides an insider's view of the Evergreen State, from Seattle's arts, culture, and snow-capped peaks to the fire and ice of the state's most venerable volcanoes. Chickowski offers itineraries such as Volunteer Vacations, Quintessential Washington Eats, and Great Drives in Washington. Complete with details on climbing Mt. Rainier, sleeping in a train car near Elbe, and dining in almost every major and minor city in the state, Moon Washington gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.

About the Author

When Ericka Chickowski was a kid, her parents told her she had too many recreational interests. Little did they know these would serve her well in her career as a freelance writer. Over the better half of a decade, she has covered everything from river rafting to llama trekking. Ericka's travel stories have appeared in publications such as The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Alaska Airlines Magazine, and Midwest Airlines Magazine. She is also a respected technology journalist who has garnered awards from the Society of Professional Journalists for column, feature, and humor writing.

Ericka grew up under the shade of Washington's evergreens. She learned to appreciate the state's diverse landscape from the backseat of a minivan during family road trips. Once she learned to drive herself, her wanderlust and love for the outdoors sent her on a lifelong quest to explore the nooks and crannies of the state, from the windswept plateaus of dry Eastern Washington to the mossy rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula. In spite of her appreciation for nature, she still thinks one of the prettiest views of Mt. Rainier is from Red Square at the Seattle campus of University of Washington, her alma mater.

Though Ericka settled down several years ago in a San Diego beach cottage with her husband, Paul, and her lovable mutt, Sandy, she regularly visits the trails, museums and restaurants of her home state. In fact, during the course of her research for this book she logged more than 2,000 miles along Washington's highways and byways. Her quest to find the coolest roadside eateries, the funkiest museums, and the grandest vistas keeps her coming back time and again.
