Outdoors columnist

Does your love for the outdoors burn alongside a passion for writing?

We’re open to a broad range of activities, but particular needs are for mountain biking/kayaking columns and profiles. Basic photo skills are a bonus. You won’t get rich, but maybe semi-famous, and it’s a paid gig. Interested? Contact Ron Judd, executive editor at ronjudd@cascadiadaily.com.
