Western Washington has a mystique. It's a unique blend of snow-capped mountains, misty rain forests, waters everywhere (an inland sea, bays, lakes, rivers), whales, elk, salmon and mild, mosquito-free climate. All Western Washington's diverse natural elements are entwined in a complex, self-sustaining order. The threads of its beautiful tapestry began to weave together about 13,000 years ago when the 3,000-foot-deep Vashon Glacier retreated.
Unfortunately, after thousands of years of perfect primal coordination, this mixture of natural wonders is falling apart.
