Washington has 3 national parks, and also many national forests, wilderness areas, and protected land.
Not to mention, Washingtonians are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
The state motto: Alki Chinook Jargon meaing "By the by" or "Eventually" accurately describes the way of life of most Washingtonians.
Concerned Washingtonian: "Maybe Californians should fix their own state instead of starting a mass exodus to Washington and other states, and ruining their culture in the process."
Uninformed person: "You're from Washington? Have you ever been to the White House?"
Me: "No, I am from the STATE of Washington, you're thinking of the DISTRICT of Columbia."
Stupid person: "Washington, isn't that in Canada somewhere?"
Me: "No, Washington is actually the 42nd US state. If you were serious you should go back to 4th grade. If that was a joke, you suck at telling jokes."
"Man! You're so lucky dude!"
