Pacific Northwest Hidden Gems

Ever since I moved to Washington, I fell more in love with nature. There is an abundance of green trees in Washington. Snowy mountains with beautiful scenery are all around the pacific northwest as well. Below are all the places I visited, and I highly recommend that you visit them one day if you like nature and photography.
