The State of Washington is the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Known for snow-capped volcanoes and sunny islands, rain forests and rain shadows, Microsoft and Boeing, Washington state is a diverse land of beauty and extremes. Guests of luxury Dude Ranches will find much to do and see during a vacation.
Washington is divided into two distinct regions by the Cascade Mountains, which bisect the state from British Columbia to Oregon. The semiarid eastern landscape dominated by steppes and Palouse is quite unlike the wet, green west, with miles of coastline and a temperate rain forest. Western Washington is also home to Puget Sound and Seattle, home to Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon.
The diverse natural beauty of the state encourages outdoor recreation. There are four volcanos in the Cascades which range in elevation from 8,300 feet (Mount St. Helen's in it's shrunken post 1980 explosion height) to over 14,400 feet (Mount Rainier). The Olympic Peninsula, west of Puget Sound, is home to the Olympic National Park, with its Olympic Mountains, Hoh Rain Forest, and long stretches of wild, wind-swept Pacific beaches. Eastern Washington boasts sunshine, world-class wineries, and vast open spaces.
Time spent at a Washington vacation ranch will inevitably include outdoor recreation. Imagine horseback riding through grassland ringed by mountains, or deep into evergreen forests. Additional activities may include angling in lakes or rivers, tubing down a river, biking or hiking. Guests of Washington Dude Ranches may enjoy a scenic sleigh ride or a thrilling snowmobile adventure as well.
A Dude Ranch Vacation in Washington is an ideal way to reconnect with nature, bond with family, and make new friends.
