My name is Rachelle, and I am really looking forward to showing you around my home state, Washington! I have lived here all my life, and I wouldn't mind keeping it that way. The state is incredibly diverse, and so full of wonders that God has created.
Honestly, Washington is so incredible that I don't think I'll be able to do it justice in this post. I'll try my best, though - let's go!
Western Washington is incredibly lush; there are trees everywhere. Because we get lots of rain, the land is almost always green. There are also many mountains with scenic hikes and stunning views. And the Pacific Ocean is close enough to take a day-trip to.
Eastern Washington feels like an entirely different state. Not only is the weather more intense, there are nearly no trees to be seen, and there are lots of rolling fields and dry hills. It is a really beautiful place to visit, especially The Palouse, a long stretch of different colored fields on hills. There is also Palouse Falls, one of my all-time favorite locations. Washington's diversity is so insane; I love it!
Washington will forever have a special place in my heart and will always be home. This was only a glimpse of it's beauty, there is much more that I haven't discovered or photographed yet!
Thank you for reading and thank you, Abbey, for letting me share! It was delightful.
shout out to my favorite state in the nation now! i had the opportunity to visit washington for a day this summer and i felt like my face was constantly smashed to the window taking in the beauty. i have never been anywhere like it and i am 100% in love and want to go back. Rachelle has a beautiful blog you can check out here, and go find her on instagram too! i love reading her words and seeing her pictures, she is so talented and i couldn't think of a better way to wrap up this project.
