is anyone from washington state?

the reason i ask is because soon ill be transferring duty stations there and I've never been there. so I'm asking how is the weather there? are there many sites to see in that state?(i know about the national forest redwoods and seattle tower) what else is there?

Rain 8 months of the year, 2 month overcast, and 2 months of sun if your in Western side of state. Eastern, 300 days of sun... 2 mountain ranges, beaches with cold water, A desert, a 14,400 ft mountain, handful of ski resorts, and a bunch of military bases..

Big State, where will you be transferred to? Big difference between Ft. Lewis/McChord and Fairchild, same for Naval stations.

WA is great! Mountains close by and plenty to see and do. Skiing, biking, hiking, jeeping you name it. I'd offer to linkup with you but I'm pcsing to Hawaii next week.

Fort Lewis is a good post.

It's really two different states:

1. The west side of the Cascade Mountains tends to be wet, in some places very, very wet, as in there is a rainforest. Also some really big cities over there with gobs of people and horrific traffic. There's also some tremendous beauty, particularly on the Olympic Peninsula.

2. The dry side of the Cascades. East of the summit it gets progressively drier, even to the point of becoming "high desert" with terrain & vegetation more similar to the Great Plains. More conservative politics. Colder. Hotter. Fewer people.

Washington has some amazing fishing, salt water & fresh water. Salmon, steelhead, trout, sturgeon, bass.... Lots of fishing.

Hunting is good, but not great. There are easy to obtain tags for elk, bear & deer. Three different species of deer and two different species of elk to hunt. Lots of bird hunting as well, if hunting is your thing. It is mine.

Skiing, hiking, mountain biking - all terrific!

Some pretty good 4x4 trails, though different from what's found in say California's Sierras and deserts.

I'll post up a few photos.

Most of my meanderings keep me on the east side of the Cascades:

Bighorn ram:






Fair sized cedar tree:






I think you and your family will find plenty to do here.
