Discover majestic Mt. Rainier, the recovery of Mount St. Helens from its recent eruption, and visit Olympic National Park with the Hoh Rain Forest. Experience the spectacular Pacific ocean coastline with fishing off Westport and sand castle competition at Long Beach. Join firefighters as they train near Hanford. Visit vast prairies and farmland, creative artists and photographers, unique cities and town, and this state comes alive.
There's a reason talented artists live in the northwest, visit Dick Hancock who creates northwest wildlife photography art on canvas; retired Seattle Times international award winning photographer Josef Scaylea, still taking pictures at 90+ years, and visit the Museum of Glass "hot shop" where beautiful silica sculptures are created. Washington is divided by the massive Cascade mountain range. Discover the west with lush green landscapes, mild temperatures and wet climates, and in contrast, the east with dry, hot summers and cold winters.
Each region is rich in agriculture, industry and outdoor recreation. Visit Washington's Skagit Valley ... famous for its most colorful resource... Tulips... hundreds of acres of tulips attract thousands of visitors to the annual spring bloom.

DVDDAWA REVIEW: Discoveries America, Washington
"The latest entry in award-winning filmmakers Jim and Kelly Watt's Discoveries...America series takes the armchair traveler on a lushly-filmed (in high definition widescreen) visit to the Pacific Northwest's "other" Washington. As varied as the U.S. itself, the state of Washington harbors the lush rainforest of Olympic National Park, the colorful acres of tulips in the Skagit Valley, the arid south central Tri-Cities area, and of course the Emerald City - Seattle, home of the three S's: Space Needle, Seahawks, and Supersonics.
Offering interesting glimpses of local industry, culture, and recreational activities, this engaging program delivers a solid sampling of what Washington has to offer. Recommended."
DVDDAWA REVIEW: "...Despite the reputation of Washington as a soggy state, the sun is always shinning in this grand tour. Starting in Seattle by visiting such major points of interest as Puget Sound, Lake Washington, and the Space Needle, the leisurely paced travelogue then moves to Tacoma, the Olympic Peninsula, Mount Rainier, and other tourist destinations. From small coffeehouses and outdoor markets to lush parks and sports venues, the program (Discoveries America, Washington) visits a multitude of popular spots.
Unrushed, informative narration and occasional short interviews with park rangers, shop owners, and cheerful residents make a persuasive case for visiting this scenic Pacific Northwest state."
