Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

Washington was carved out of the western part of Washington Territory which had been ceded by Britain in 1846 by the Oregon Treaty as settlement of the Oregon Boundary Dispute.

It was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. ~ Wikipedia

Often referred to by its full title, Washington State, to distinguish it from Washington, D.C., Washington offers rugged coastline, deserts, forests, mountains, volcanoes, and hundreds of coastal islands to explore.

The Cascade Mountains bisect the state, with the damp forested coastal areas to the west, and pineforests, deserts and irrigated farmland of the Columbia River Plateau to the east. ~ Wikitravel
