Turns out, if we want lots of traffic, we should be writing about playing in the snow. We've been away on holiday for a week and not posting -- but a lot of you still visited the blog after searching for "sledding seattle" on Google.
We have a nifty little post about sledding without leaving Seattle. But we're guessing that when some of you search for "sledding seattle," you're actually looking for "sledding NEAR seattle."
Unfortunately, the Google results for the "near" search don't yield much useful info. So, here are some good links for those of you planning a drive into the mountains:
