Bellingham Listed As America’s 9th Most Active City!

Time lists Bellingham as America’s 9th most active city!

This comes as no suprise to me.  With all the local walking & hiking trails around, from the lowlands around Chuckanut and Lake Whatcom and the foothills to the alpine trials in the North Cascades one can walk/hike just about year-round.
Lots of mountain biking too!  Also, there’s plenty of road biking opporunity as well.  Horse trails too.
Skiing (both cross country & downhill), snow-boarding, and snowshoeing abounds in the North Cascades.
The ocean (North Puget Sound or The Salish Sea) offers its share of outdoor adventures and sports.  Scuba diving (Jacque Cousteau once said the San Juans was the best diving in the world), sea kayaking, sailing, motorboating, gunkholing (look that one up!), crabbing, shrimping and deep sea fishing are but a few salt water ventures to mention.
Runners enjoy several well known events-marathons to mini-marathons.  Iron-man competitions are here too!
Lots of soccer, rugby, and even LaCrosse, teams can be found.  Not to be out done, semipro football, baseball and basketball thrives with some top-level competition.  And our school sports throughout the Northwest Destrict really rock-n-roll!  Lots of state champs and state contenders.
Did i miss anything or anybody?  Oh yea, MMA and boxing are among martial arts not to be forgotten.
Golf – how could I forget- well it’s easy since I don’t get to go golfing as much as I’d like…18 courses Whatcom County-wide.
Freshwater sports from white water rafting and tubing down the Nooksack River, to water skiing, and kneeboarding on Lake Samish, Lake Whatcom and Wiser Lake.  Lots of freshwater angling including bass fishing, trout fishing and even cat fishing in Fazon Lake!
No wonder we’re in the top 15!
