When it comes to transportation, Washington State residents have many great options. Residents also have the option of using the Washington State Ferry System. Residents can opt to either walk on the ferry or drive their cars onto the ferry.

Just as many businesses in Washington state reimburse residents for using the bus, residents who choose the ferry improve the traffic flow; it also saves residents from having to drive around or cross bridges, which may also be partially reimbursed for using public transportation.

There are many great benefits to riding the ferry system as a form of commuting to and from work. Employees can enjoy a relaxing ride, enjoy the scenic view, help reduce the carbon footprint in Washington State by reducing traffic congestion, improve the environment, and mentally prepare for their day without having to drive. Many residents enjoy riding the ferry to and from work.

The Selkirk Mountains are located in northeast Washington, north Idaho, and southeast British Columbia. Here, you'll find plenty of forested hillsides, waterfalls, craggy peaks, and the charm of many small towns. The nearest metropolitan area is Spokane, Washington, about one-hour southwest of the Selkirk Loop. Within the Loop, the Selkirk Mountains are accessible from the Salmo Basin, Sullivan Lake, Priest Lake, Pack River, Roman Nose, Kootenay Pass, and Kokanee Glacier recreation areas.
