The Methow Valley is undoubtedly a special place. In light of the recent wildfires that swept through the area, there seem to be an exceptional number of creative ways the community is banding together.

Prints are still for sale to benefit rebuilding efforts of families who lost their homes in the fires. Choose one design for $30 or both for $50. Prints are 11"x14" and proceeds will be donated to the Community Foundation of North Central Washington's Fire Relief Fund.

James Varner and the Rainshadow Running team have also come up with some creative ways to support rebuilding efforts after regretfully canceling the beloved Angel's Staircase race. You can donate by purchasing race stickers here (designed by the lovely and talented Hannah Viano).

Lastly, Red Umbrella Designs is proud and honored to share a new logo for an upcoming event that gives you the chance to recreate in the Methow! North Cascades Mountain Hostel is sponsoring the 2014 Methow Valley Off-Road Duathlon on Sat Sept 27th.
