north to south by the high and broad wall
of the Cascades. The pleasant lands between
mountains and the ocean have very mild winters.
Flowers bloom all year.The moisture borne by the
Pacific winds is precipitated by the cold mountain
ranges, giving the western section one of the
heaviest rainfalls in the world!
