It is no secret that Washington State, famous for rain and moss draped coniferous forests, is two-thirds desert. The Cascade Range keeps all that rain close to the coast, the inland part of the state remains incredibly dry and sunny most of the time. That’s why Michael and I went there last weekend to escape the the torrential rains at home, besides the fields are so mucky we couldn’t even plant if we wanted to.
