There are many reasons to visit Washington State but for the winter sports enthusiast what better reason could there be than to visit the challenging ski resort of Crystal Mountain? During the winter months Crystal Mountain is ideally placed to provide snow-capped peaks of over 7,000 feet, standing proud below the towering Mount Rainier which climbs to over 14,000 feet.
The months of November to April bring several feet of fresh powder snow to Crystal Mountain, this being a reliable happening thanks to the cold Cascade storms common to this area. This factor alone makes a compelling reason to visit this first class Washington State ski area.
There are breathtaking views of Mount Rainier from the summit of Crystal Mountain. The area positively bulges with 2,300 acres of fabulous skiing and here you will find every kind of skiing you can imagine, making this the largest ski area in the state of Washington.
Of particular appeal to advanced and intermediate skiers who will enjoy 87% of all runs, there are some 7 runs for beginners which amounts to a generous variety for all levels. Intermediates are best catered for with 57% of all runs and of all the runs the very longest is called Northway and stretches for 2.5 miles or 4km.
With a definite bias in the distribution of trails towards the more experienced skier, lift capacity runs at 20,000 per hour. There are 2 high speed quads, 2 high speed sixes, 2 triple chairs, 4 double chairs and a surface lift for children. Despite leaning towards the more experienced skier, lessons are available and it is possible to rent skis and other equipment as required. This is also useful in the event of losses and breakages.
There is a Kids Club that is open from 8am to 4pm each day for children aged four to eleven years old. They will be well looked after while the experts in the family explore the remainder of the resort and experience the thrill of skiing the black diamond runs. The Kids Club supervises skiing on the appropriate slopes for their charges and there is also snowboarding available for children aged 7 – 11 years old. Children will learn while having fun and being supervised on the slopes while the remainder of the party can enjoy the challenging terrain that this Washington ski resort offers.
For those who enjoy back country skiing, Crystal Mountain has two back country areas which can only be reached by hiking. This is extreme and unforgiving terrain and the ski patrol has specific rules for those looking to ski in these areas. Covered mainly in thick woodland, North Backcountry does have some trails which have been cut through the trees.
The season runs from the middle of November to the middle of April, when the best snow fall is experienced. There are many places to choose for lodging, meals and evening entertainment. After a day of skiing, you should definitely head over to East Peak Massage & Fitness to take advantage of the hot tub, sauna, showers and even the games room. Massages are available with a reservation. In the summer of 2004, Crystal built the Campbell Basin Lodge, a Cascade-style lodge serving pasta, pizza, soups, teriyaki, burgers, salads, Mexican food and more.
For a superb vacation skiing in Washington State this is a great place for the family. Everyone can have a great experience at Crystal Mountain, even though the slopes are more for intermediate and expert skiers. Novice skiers can have fun as well as long as careful attention is paid to the grade of slope attempted.
Kerry Devere is a great fan of holidays in the mountains and in particular thrashing the red runs. Before you plan your next ski safari, read more of her ski destination reviews.
“All problems have a solution,” we hear, and people always seem to be right! So when the solution you are aiming for is “the perfect European vacation”, but the Euro is getting in your way… No problem! The solution you are seeking is right in your North West Washington “back yard”, and it’s called: Port Townsend, Washington.
Port Townsend is a city with the European flavor you crave in food, wines, (both imported and/or the splendid local reds and whites), architecture and culture.
Lodging here can also be a charming “one of a kind” experience, in the Victorian Mansion that belonged to Anne Starrett, in the very heart of Up Town.
Your delights here start entering. Here in Port Townsend, the precious wooden carved stairs offer you the harmony you would expect from a song. And on the way up, you bring your delighted eyes to the painted “cúpula” as the climax of your first visual ecstasies.
If in the other wonderful Victorian “treat”, The Old Consulate -which, like its name indicates, was built to serve that very honorable purpose; and still distills the irresistible charm and elaborate beauty of its time.
You can lodge, overlooking the amazing Puget Sound, if you lodge in the James House.
There you’ll find the charm of elegant and well chosen antiques all about; but each of the rooms will provide you , in all comfort, a flavor all it’s own!
But Port Townsend is all this and more.
Port Townsend is a compendium of all these gifts in the middle of crystalline waters for you to admire, and sail and kayak or wind-surf. There are also luscious woods for your appreciative eyes; growing in the midst of homes, gardens, parks, and beside some lovely beaches, for you to hike at your leisure.
Fun, cultured, multi-talented people are all around; entertaining themselves in art or arts and crafts, and entertaining you with their art, and their stories.
You can expect excellent taste and variety in boutiques; and excellent, affordable antiques -if you take some time to look.
An unforgettable visit to Port Townsend will quench well your thirst for the European flavor…in your very own back yard!
Life invites you to Port Townsend….
And a deer or two on your space, grazing gracefully the lawns they grace with their grace. In Port Townsend you can hardly avoid playing with words, and finding poetry; whether it is verbal, emotional, or visual
In Port Townsend you’ll find old, beautifully carved woods in the lobby of “The Rose” movie house you attend and the Victorian bar and restaurant you treat yourself to afterward.
Movies are excellent selections (as the Oscars came to demonstrate). The Live Theatre is truly splendid, and even migratory birds love to meet you here on their way South or North!
Not only can you drive to Port Townsend from Seattle, Victoria BC or Vancouver BC… now you can also fly from Seattle, and Port Angeles. You can sail in, or come on foot. You’ll love it -And we’ll love you!
In Port Townsend, we’d love to have you stay with us… Always love, light and laughter Leticia Huber 🙂 http://www.StayInHubersINN.com
Washington D.C. which is the capital of the United States of America was known long before as the District of Columbia. Though it has the same name as that of another state, it was founded in July 16, 1790.
Are you looking for someone but you’re afraid to ask in case they’ve died?
If you’re looking for old friends that you haven’t seen for some time you might be worried that they’re no longer with us. If you’re calling up mutual friends and asking them could put you in a very awkward position. I’ve had people burst into tears on me when I’ve made this mistake. You might find that you get a little upset yourself too. Why not find out if they are dead before you start ringing around.
Recording of weddings, births, deaths and other vital statistics in Washington began in the year 1890. Obtaining Washington state death records can be done easily. Social Services and the Department of Health handle the request of the death records. If you have any question regarding the Washington state death records of a family member and your other vital statistics you can also call them. But in many cases, the phone is calling. Even you give them a call successfully; you need to wait a couple of days for their reply. The information you get from there are usually incomplete and not detailed.
The best way to save your time and money is to search Washington State Death Records is to perform it via online public database. There you will have millions of records at your fingertips that you can cross-reference and research from the privacy of your home. You will have to pay a nominal fee, but you will be able to get a full refund if no satisfying records are found which you won’t get if you try writing in.

Washington State is a splendid place for recreation but no place in the Nation rivals the Pacific Northwest in terms of National forests and parks. These are great places for recreational activities and the Pacific Northwest has a particularly high volume of these areas including the Olympic National Park. It is often referred to as “three parks in one” and offers water and winter sports. The divided areas include the glaciered mountains and high country of the interior, the rain forest, and the wilderness coastline. Even though the area west of the Cascades is extremely moist the coastal region of the state sports many beautiful beaches that attract many beach-goers. The official site of Washington State tourism has information on things to do and see through a very thorough listing of available activities including dog sledding, kayaking, paragliding, and llama trekking and there are numerous outdoor activities to be done even in the city of Seattle.
The state of Washington has a particularly large array of possible activities including beaches, snow-topped mountains, and forests for attracting hunters, campers, and hikers. Few states are able to support both skiing and ocean beach recreation. The best outdoor activities can be found in national forests and a significant portion the Nation’s supply is in the Pacific Northwest. Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have some of the largest surface areas of national forests of any state in the country.
The Olympic Peninsula sports many beaches including three that are connected by a triangular trail that includes Sand Point, Cape Alava, and Lake Ozette. Sand Point is home to a large sea otter population and the area commonly sees whales, seals, and sea lions. The actor John Wayne believed that Sequim Bay was a perfect place for a marina. In 1975 the actor donated the land to have a marina built on it and it now displays some John Wayne memorabilia. Sekiu Trail, also known as One-Mile Beach has many cave opportunities and tide pools. Fort Hayden, used as a World War II military base, can be visited at Salt Creek on the north end of the Olympic Peninsula. Two popular beach resort areas along the coast include Ocean Shores and Long Beach, the latter of which is host to the International Kite Festival that happens once a year.
Washington has a relatively large area of national forests making up a total of nine including the gigantic Olympic, which was established in 1938. The Forest has different regions with different names such as Queets Rain Forest, Wonder Mountain Wilderness, and Buckhorn Wilderness. It has received recognition for being the best National Park for springtime activity by GORP. In the northeastern portion of the Olympic National Park lies the Hurricane Ridge Ski Area and in the northwestern portion of the park is the Sol Duc hot springs where one can relax and even enjoy a nice massage from a professional massage therapist. The Native American Quinault tribe from the southeast section of the Peninsula even offers bird-watching tours by motor-driven canoe.
Mount Olympus National Monument was Olympic National Park’s original name given back in 1909 because of the mountain’s relative bigness. The mountain is now home to many climbers who like to challenge the 7,965-foot elevation, the highest peak of the Olympic Mountains. Between late June and early September is the best time to tackle this climb but it is recommended that climbers have practice in crevasse rescue before hand because of the risk of falling into a hidden crevasse.

If you mention travel to Washington state it’s often met with the stereotype “it always rains there”. The fact is statistically Washington gets less rain then many other locations, but has more to offer the traveler than a weather report.
Washington state has a beauty that varies widely without leaving the state. You can go from the peninsula shoreline to the beautiful western Washington to the Cascade mountains and the rugged beauty of Eastern Washington. From sailing to horse racing to rodeos to hiking there is something for everyone.
RV travel in Washington is easy with state highways and interstates that criss-cross the state. There are a host of art and city things to see and do in the Emerald city itself but don’t think that all of Washington is Seattle! Oh no! Explore the mountains, take a ferry ride and visit a farmer’s market.
Many festivals and traditions remain in Washington. There’s the Omak Stampede, the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee and sit along one of the rivers just soaking up the beauty of the area. Wildlife abounds in the rural areas of the state.
A good network of RV parks are scattered throughout Washington state as well as dealers and service centers in the larger cities.
Fans of the Twilight Saga know of the stories centered on the Peninsula in Washington. An area of rain forests and magical coastlines, this part of Washington is another world from the busy streets of Seattle. Heavy moss, dense forests and alpine meadows are a nature lover’s dream and a photographer’s endless opportunity. Just a few hours separate these wonderlands from the bigger cities.
A stop in Seattle is a variety of eclectic tastes. The city gets a role in popular television shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” with that distinctive profile of the Space Needle. There’s the Pacific Science Center, famous Pike Place Market and a love of coffee that offer a unique experience for families, couples and single travelers alike. A short drive north are the communities of Everett, Snohomish and Monroe. From here you can explore further north to the Canadian border, the islands in the Puget Sound or head East across Stevens Pass. You’ll probably want to fuel up before getting beyond Monroe or Sultan, as there are some small towns but it can be a sparse place to find fuel if you’re on empty!
The Pass offers a beautiful drive in all seasons over to Wenatchee. The eastern part of the state is very different from the western part or peninsula. It’s more rugged, some say with a harsh edge but born of independence needed to make a living in this part of the state. Orchards and ranches are plentiful. This rural area is an important agricultural area not only for the state but for the USA.
Take time to explore all that Washington has to offer. Whether you have indoor or outdoor interests, there is something for everyone here. It is easy to fall in love with Washington, for the many changes and yet convenience of being fairly close together.
Make some memories – visit Washington state for travel fun. Fall in love with a one of a kind place.
