A photographic celebration of one of the nations most beautiful states, Our Washington travels the byways of this star of the Pacific Northwest to capture its character, geography, history, culture, and natural splendor in all their rich diversity. Authors George and Rhonda Ostertag venture into the heart of Washington to find the signature qualities that make this state unique. The photos take us from the dramatic peaks of Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens to the tranquil beauty of the San Juan Islands, from the stark High Desert east of the Cascades to the lush rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula, and from the frontier heritage of Walla Walla and Spokane to Seattles hip urban core. Ranging from sea level to mountain high, this book shows us the idyllic and the harsh, the homespun and the urban edge of this ever-changing canvas that is Washington.
