The Pacific Northwest's Best Trips - Washington (PDF Chapter)
The spinal Cascade Mountains cut the state metaphorically in half. In a few hours you can drive from the wet, urban, liberal, evergreen coast, via a dramatic volcano-punctuated mountain range, to the arid, conservative, vineyard-patterned and scrublike east.
- explore an old-fashioned alternative to the interstate, shadowing Puget Sound
- pick the right route with inspirational images and key trip highlights
- discover Wild West towns, Bavarian villages and moody mountains
- get around easily with colour maps and route directions in easy stages
- experience more float than drive around the speckled greenery of a ‘lost’ America
- discover even more with walking tours, detours and ways to link your trips
