What is it that makes the Northwest unique from the rest of the country? There is a reason we have chosen to live here; is it the beauty of the landscape, the variation of the skies and weather, the character of the cities, or that you can get the best cup of coffee in the country at virtually every corner? This show represents what makes living in the Northwest special to us.
