Washington Topography and Scenic Attractions

Washington was named in honor of George Washington.  The Puget Sound region along the Pacific coast, the volcanic Cascade Range immediately to the east, and eastern Washington's Columbia Plateau are the state's primary geographical features.  The coastal region supports a dense temperate rain forest while much of the inland region beyond the Cascades is a treeless, semiarid plain.  Mount Rainier and Mount Saint Helens are examples of Washington's majestic scenery, while the Whitman Mission and Fort Vancouver National Historic Site draw history buffs.  For Washington travel and tourism information, visit the official Washington tourism site and Washington Atlas.
