Washington State is one of the most beautiful and diverse places in the US. It features many unique environments: multiple moutain ranges, ocean beaches, temperate rainforests, gorges, rivers, old growth forests, lakes, rolling hills, cliffs, waterfalls, pine forests, caves, hotsprings, tundra, volcanoes, glaciers, and more.
Washington has 3 national parks, and also many national forests, wilderness areas, and protected land.
Not to mention, Washingtonians are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
The state motto: Alki Chinook Jargon meaing "By the by" or "Eventually" accurately describes the way of life of most Washingtonians.
Californian (to his "bra"): "Dude, we should like totally move to Washington State, buy all their land and businesses, raise their housing prices, and like totally force our like ideals and stuff on them!"
Concerned Washingtonian: "Maybe Californians should fix their own state instead of starting a mass exodus to Washington and other states, and ruining their culture in the process."
Uninformed person: "You're from Washington? Have you ever been to the White House?"
Me: "No, I am from the STATE of Washington, you're thinking of the DISTRICT of Columbia."
Stupid person: "Washington, isn't that in Canada somewhere?"
Me: "No, Washington is actually the 42nd US state. If you were serious you should go back to 4th grade. If that was a joke, you suck at telling jokes."
