Areas to live in PNW
Snowolf or anyone up there, what do you think about the area between sandy and mt hood village to live? I like vail but we are on a continuous journey to see the country one place at a time, 18-24 months at a time. Our next stop is the PNW and I'm looking for places 30 minutes from the city..... Portland or Seattle metro area but also with very close distance of snowboarding. Growing up in 100+ temps of south Texas for months at a time, my wife and I like the cloudy, rainy, cool environment up there.
Seattle area I would guess somewhere on the route to Crystal or snoqualmie pass but 30 min from downtown in good conditions. Any other suggestions in this area?
Bend area was a thought too but it seems quite arid.... I plan to spend a couple days in bend tis June on the way to hood though....
