From Olympia to Puget Sound and bustling Seattle, up to Bellingham and through the breathtaking Cascades, across lush rolling farmland heading to Spokane, delightful and unusual rambles abound in the Evergreen State. With longtime resident Archie Satterfield as your guide, discover the mountainous views along Chuckanut Drive, the state's first highway built for viewing scenery; step out of time in quirky towns like Old-West themes Winthrop; and enjoy some state history, be it the colorful legend of Molson or the lore around one of the West's most tenacious Indian chiefs, Spokane Garry.
Cross the state on Highway 20, one of America's prettiest country highways, and see it all--mountains, desert, National forests, tulip fields, swaths of farmland, and countless towns dotting the way. Dip into the heart of the Cascades on the Mountain Loop Highway and camp, picnic, hike, or watch bald eagles near the famed Granite Falls. Follow the Skagit River through the beautiful Cascades and tour the hydroelectric dam that powers Seattle. Amble the beautiful wheat-growing hills of Palouse County and and take in the flavor and ambience of small-town life. Wind your way along spectacular Snake River canyon, home of a waterway that Lewis and Clark canoed on their journey to the Pacific Coast.

Backroads & Byways of Washington is the shortest route a visitor can take to explore like a native and the best guide for natives delving more deeply into the history and magic of their home state.
