We've had a busy week at TripCart and have just put the final touches on our newest guide - Northwest Washington and the Cascades. From Seattle and Tacoma, to Mt. St. Helen and Mt. Ranier, to the Puget Sound and Whidbey Island, there's an amazing amount of nature and things to explore throughout this region. Get a break from the heat and head to the Northwest where the weather's not even breaking 80 degrees this week. Here's a taste-
Sometimes referred to as “America’s Switzerland,” this part of the state of Washington is in the area of North America known as the Pacific Northwest. Home to high mountains and evergreen forests, northwest Washington and the Cascades are bordered by the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north and, to the west, the Pacific Ocean. The Cascade Mountains run right through the middle of the state of Washington, with Mt. St. Helens standing proudly at the southernmost point in the region. Many areas in the region are great for scenic drives, hiking and biking, where the lush, green mountainous scenery can be appreciated either from up close or from afar.
