Northwest Outward Bound School is proud to present a conversation with Craig Romano, author of 100 Classic Hikes Washington.
Northwest Outward Bound School is hosting Craig Romano, author of 100 Class Hikes Washington! Join us and Romano as he discusses beautiful hikes around Washington State. There will be BBQ and beverages provided along with a raffle! Attendees will also receive 20% off Filson merchandise.
Like classic rock, classic literature, and classic film, a classic hike should be a superb representation--in this case, of trails--capturing the full essence of our outdoors and outdoor experiences. It should be timeless--not replicated anywhere--and the experience should remain indelibly etched in our minds. Washington is a beautiful state with big mountains, big rivers, big lakes, a big coastline, big trees, big animals, and big tracts of public lands traversed by thousands of miles of trails--the ideal place to find classic hikes. Come explore the 100 Classic Hikes of Washington with award winning author Craig Romano. Learn about the very best hikes in the state—short and long—day and overnight. From the misty wild Olympic Coast to the sun-kissed Blue Mountains, explore trails covering every facet of Washington’s incredible geographical diversity. What better way to get acquainted with our beautiful natural heritage than by taking a classic hike?
Funds raised will support and strengthen Northwest Outward Bound School's programming to serve more students through discovery. Donate today at nwobs.org/donate.
Craig Romano grew up in rural New Hampshire, where he fell in love with the natural world. He moved to Washington in 1989 and has since hiked more than 32,000 miles in the Evergreen State. An avid runner as well, Craig has run more than 40 marathons and ultra runs, including the Boston Marathon and the White River 50-Mile Endurance Run.
Craig is an award winning author of more than 25 books. His Columbia Highlands: Exploring Washington’s Last Frontier was recognized in 2010 by Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed and State Librarian Jan Walsh as a Washington Reads book for its contribution to the state’s cultural heritage. Craig also writes for numerous publications, tourism websites, and Hikeoftheweek.com as well as providing content for the Tread Map app.
When not hiking, running, and writing, he can be found napping with his wife Heather, son Giovanni, and cat Beau, at his home in Skagit County. Visit him at CraigRomano.com and on Facebook at “Craig Romano Guidebook Author.”
