I got my hands on Weird Oregon and used it to plan a motorcycle trip to amazing destinations I had never heard of before. I was an instant fan of these Weird books. Next summer we are planning to do the same sort of trip, but in Washington. I bought this book so I can pick awesome, little-known destinations. These books are incredibly interesting and have great pictures. I guarantee that any reader of this book will instantly start a list of future destinations!...
Ah, Washington: evergreens, coffee, rock, and rain. Thats pretty much it, right? Well, no. There is a whole lot of weird going on in our state. Washington is home to some of the weirdest travel destinations, scariest legends, and most colorful folks in the United States.
Because there are so many odd and unusual tales, cemeteries, beasts, and people here, it took two authors to traverse the state to document it all. With cameras and notepads, and apples (of course) in hand, Jefferson Davis and Al Eufrasio boldly ventured the highways and byways, back roads and forests, shorelines and mountaintops to investigate all the state has to offer.
For starters, there are lots of unexplained events herein fact, were ranked number two in the whole country for mysterious phenomena: Americas only unsolved hijacking happened here; look up, but watch out for raining rocks, mysterious flying men, and UFOs; look down, and you might uncover a body turned to soap in Crescent Lake or deadly monsters in Lake Washington.
Where else can you find a tribute to a giant squirting razor clam? Discover Ozette, our own Pompeii of the Pacific Northwest, cruise by Gospodors monumental controversy on your way to Gravity Hill, but if thats Bigfoot you see, no worries because here in Washington, Bigfoot saves lives! Investigate the elusive Northwest tree octopus, feed a hungry ghost at Starvation Heights, and see whats not going on in Aberdeen. Yes, Washington is a whole lot weirder than you ever imagined, and Weird Washington is here to show and tell you all about it.

I bought this book for my daughter who loves visiting old cemeteries and I knew this book listed some. I was very pleased because it had all kinds of very interesting items about Washington I didn't know. It lists where to find these places and all the background information and facts. Made my daughter happy and she can't wait for a road trip to find some of these "weird" places. Makes a great gift for someone with everything. I had searched everywhere for this book, hard to find as it was always sold out. Great price.Read More
