Washington is a land of contrasts. The deep forests of the Olympic Peninsula, such as the Hoh Rain Forest, are among the only temperate rainforests in the continental United States, but the semi-desert east of the Cascade Range has few trees. The Cascade Range contains several volcanoes, which reach altitudes significantly higher than the rest of the mountains. Thousands of square miles of federally-designated wilderness areas, along with iconic National Parks, several large National Forests, and many state parks provide the outdoor enthusiast with unlimited recreational possibilities. Mount Rainier, the highest mountain in the state and the cradle of American alpine climbing, is covered with more glacial ice than any other peak in the lower 48 states.
