Blogging far north Seattle, from Blue Ridge to Cedar Park

About Us

The area of Seattle north of 85th Street was one of the last major areas annexed into the city of Seattle. It’s been neglected, forgotten, and generally not considered as cool as the hipster-land of Fremont or the gentrified yuppietowns of Ballard and Wallingford.

It’s also one of the most unblogged areas of the city.

We’re out to change that.

Come see how life is North of 85th. Here be dragons.


Discovering new places, new adventures and new opportunities: this is what living is all about! A wise philosopher once said that existing is far different from living – and if you want to live your life, you have to experience things high and low and live out your dreams. On a relevant note, the world is likened very much to the existence of books – there are so many pages, and to get the full and rich experience, you definitely have to turn each page and make sure that you are able to savor whatever it has to offer. Each page can be read quite quick, while others a bit slower – not matter what your style may be, it all depends on how you take and perceive each one. In the same vein, there are places you have yet to discover, and some that you may have been seeing over and over again but fail to see the richness and the wealth beyond its mystery. It is about time that you open your eyes to these great beginnings and to seize every opportunity that life has to offer.

Enter north of 85th street in Seattle. Seattle may be one of the major cities known world wide – known for its skyline and glamorous lights – but some areas are yet to be discovered.
