Washington is a very nice state! We spent time in the mountain snow, the State Capital Olympia, cool Seattle which has the Nordstrom flagship store! (heaven), and green Spokane. This is a great state to visit if you like to be outdoors. The people are relaxed, there are lots of things to do, and the scenery is beautiful everywhere you look! In Mt. Ranier National Park you can stay in a lodge type place that has rooms with no bathrooms. There usually isn’t a line for the shower, though, so it’s OK. They had puzzles downstairs and it was nice to spend time after dinner doing a puzzle. I learned I like flatbread pizza with sausage, in Seattle. I liked the fact that it was chilly here; not hot. We now know what a “sound” is (IE: Puget Sound) and we also NOW know that if you walk in large snowbanks without snowshoes you can loose YOUR shoes! (sorry mom) 🙂 We’ve moved on to Montana.
