Washington State

Natural Wonders and Watchable Wildlife

Nature-lovers will find plenty to admire in Washington.  From extra-ordinary wildlife to ancient rain forests, pristine estuaries to desert dunes, volcanoes cloaked in glacial ice to arid coulees.  Washington claims the longest stretch of wild coast outside Alaska, some of the deepest lakes, tallest peaks and longest sand spits in the world.  It invites you to explore an "inland sea" (Puget Sound), three national parks, dozens of federal wilderness areas, and a score of wildlife refuges.  Accessible Wildlife is suprisingly abundance in Washington, if you know where and when to look.  Here are some starters.
