Mount Rainier
Olympic Mountains
Cascade Mountains
Washington Coast - Ocean Shores
Puget Sound
Lake Washington
Lake Sammamish
Lake Chelan
Bainbridge Island
Vashon Island
Whidbey Island
Blake Island
The Palouse

Not the Palouse.

For me, basically anywhere west of the Cascades, a stretch between Nespelem and Omak, and Stevens, Pend Oreille, and Spokane County north of Spangle.

For me it is either the Artist Point area up at Mount Baker, or Mount Rainier National Park. I go a couple times every year to each of these areas and am just in awe each time.

I wouldn't agree with having Forks on that list.
I'll say the Pasayten.

Totally agree. A bunch of places near there on and around the North Cascades Highway would fit the bill, too.

Not necessarily in that order but close. I left the rest out because there's nothing beautiful about anything close to Seattle unless you don't mind sitting in traffic.

I'm surprised to see Ocean Shores on these lists.
