Explore Washington

I love the outdoors and think Washington State is the perfect place to experience the outdoors. As I explore Washington I will take you on my travels.

Washington sits in the far northwest corner of the lower 48 United States. It's a state of contrasts - from sea level at the ocean to 14,410' at the top of Mt. Rainier, from rain forests with over 100" of rain a year to deserts, with glaciers and forests and lakes and rivers in between.

My viewpoint will be much from the outdoors - traveling by car, motorcycle, bicycle, on foot and maybe even by boat - whatever mode best suits the location (and me).

The photo in the header was taken from Slate Peak, above Harts Pass.

Harts Pass and Slate Peak
The road to Harts Pass is the highest road in Washington State. Just a couple miles beyond Harts Pass is Slate Peak. This is definitely worth the drive for the views!
