Looking at the Seattle area
Live in Colorado now and love it here but I have been offered a job in Vancouver. Not wanting to manage teams 100% remotely, I am thinking of moving to Seattle. That way, I can drive in a few times a month. Vancouver is simply too expensive, and I am not crazy about Canada's tax rate.
So, for those of you living in/near Seattle, do you like it there? Does the drizzle get old? We like hiking, photography, cycling (mtn and road) and want to take up kayaking. Off-roading is nice too, of course, but I don't particularly want rock crawling type of trails- more of the moderate and scenic type instead.
Any feedback on the area would be appreciated- trail-related or in general. I'd prefer to live in/near Seattle, since it has more job opportunities and we enjoy the cool/cultural stuff too.
