Eastern Washington

Eastern Washington is the portion of the US state of Washington east of the Cascade Range. The region contains the city of Spokane (the second largest city in the state), the Tri-Cities, the Columbia River and the Grand Coulee Dam, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and the fertile farmlands of the Yakima Valley and the Palouse. Unlike the west half of the state, the climate of Eastern Washington is dry, including some near-desert environments.

Famous quotes containing the words washington and/or eastern:

    Mrs. Sneed and her daughter, Miss Austine Sneed, are visiting us—Washington correspondents of excellent character.... We are much interested in their accounts of Washington affairs. Nothing could be further from our desire than to return to Washington and again enter its whirl, either socially or politically, but we are interested in seeing Washington with the roof off.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Your Beauty, ripe, and calm, and fresh,
    As Eastern Summers are,
    Must now, forsaking Time and Flesh,
    Add light to some small Star.
    Sir William Davenant (1606–1668)
