I saw this and thought a few in here might enjoy.  To be honest you can see better photos in the trip reports forum, but the variety in one page is a good reminder how special our home state is.

The label in the article for the picture Cyclopath included in his post  says itís the Hoh Rain Forest. Itís taken from Hurricane Ridge and that would be the Lillian River valley. Mt. Anderson would be on the extreme left of the picture and the Elwha valley is on the right hand side of the picture.

We have glaciated mountains, live and extinct volcanoes, deep rainforest, desert, lovely burn scars teeming with new life, archipelagos, majestic rivers, bizarre scablands, deciduous conifers, ... you all know.

I grew up in a place that's downright boring by comparison.  I saw Washington for the first time on a road trip many years ago, and fell in love.  This place is incredible.

Hey Hesman, thanks for spotting that, I could tell it couldn't be the Hoh, just couldn't figure out which drainage it was.

I might have to eat my words.....now that I look at it closer, it looks like Long Ridge and Dodger Point front and center with the Elwha on the left and the Long Creek valley on the right.

Comparing it side by side with the Hurricane Ridge webcam picture it does look like Long Ridge.
