Washington State is located in the Northwest of the United States, if you don't count Alaska. It belongs to the Greater West region and is located on the west coast of the USA on the Pacific Ocean. Washington shares a northern border with the Canadian province of British Columbia. Vancouver, Canada is about 50 kilometers from the US border. The capital of Washington is Olympia with 51,000 inhabitants. The largest city in the state is Seattle with a population of 704,000. Seattle is known as the birthplace of grunge music, with Nirvana being its most popular exponents. The imposing Cascade chain with its large volcanoes runs through Washington. Mount Rainier is particularly spectacular in the landscape, which at 4,392 meters is not only the highest mountain in the Cascade range, but also the highest mountain in Washington State. To the north of Washington lies North Cascades National Park, which is one of the most undeveloped national parks in the United States. This means that nature is almost untouched, especially at higher altitudes. There is another mountain range on a peninsula in front of the bay on which Seattle is also located – the Puget Sound. Namely the Olympic Mountains, whose highest peak is the 2,432 meter high Mount Olympus. There is also a national park there and also the rainiest point in the USA outside of the states of Alaska and Hawaii. Check Ask4Beauty for more information about the state of Washington.
