Our Beautiful Corner of the #Earth – in Washington State

Earth Day was April 22nd, and though I’m a bit late, let’s just call it Earth Week, how about?

When I think of our beautiful planet, the stage on which we live our lives, I think of all the natural beauty surrounding me in my home state of Washington.

We have mountains too many to count

I showcase Mt. Rainier and the Olympics often enough, still I couldn’t leave them out, right? So I’ll start with those, then show you a couple more: Mt. Adams to the south and Liberty Bell to the north.

Water, Water, Everywhere

No, I’m not talking about the rain though there is that. I’m talking about the ocean. And lakes. And waterfalls. And yes, rivers, including the big kahuna, the Mighty Columbia.

Desert and Ancient Canyons, are you surprised?

Granted, you have to cross over to the middle and east side of the state to see them. But it’s worth the trip, especially to Grand Coulee country where you’ll find an ancient waterfall, though Dry Falls dried up thousands of years ago!

Did I mention the Wildlife?

I love that we get to share the earth with friendly creatures like these.

Oh, Wait, I’ve forgotten the TREES!

Now I’m done. πŸ™‚

  2. Earth is happy you shared her glory, Susanne! Washington puts on such a grand display of our planet’s amazing elements. Central WA has some cool sights as well. In the blink of an eye, Lake Spokane is FULL! Snow is melting quickly as we heat up over here to 79 by Saturday!

    • Thanks, Terri! I love the all the natural diversity to be found in our state! We also are expecting our first heat wave of the year with temps in the upper-seventies as well! We will take advantage of it! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Pete. When we no longer feel like traveling further afield we’ll have everything we want to see right here!

  8. What a wonderful gallery from your home state! I see places I recognise from our visit and many others I don’t think we managed to get to, especially in the east of the state. You live in a beautiful part of the world for sure πŸ˜€

    • Thanks so much, Sarah! 😊 I mainly included pictures from the west side since that’s where I live. Even then it was hard to pick just a few to represent the state!
