Highest roads of Washington

Located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, Washington is the 18th largest state. Lying at the northwestern corner of the 48 conterminous states, it’s bordered by Canada in the north and Oregon in the south. On the east, it’s bordered by Idaho and, on the west, it’s bordered by the Pacific Ocean.

Nicknamed the Evergreen State because of its many forests, Washington can be divided into six geographic land areas; the Olympic Mountains, the Coast Range, the Puget Sound Lowlands, the Cascade Mountains, the Columbia Plateau, and the Rocky Mountains. When it comes to climate and geography, Washington State is a study in contrasts.
