5 facts about the west
1. All of its states are partly mountainous. 2. In much of the West the population is sparse. 3. To the west of the peaks, winds from the Pacific Ocean carry enough moisture to keep the land well-watered. To the east, however, the land is very dry. Parts of western Washington State, for example, receive 20 times the amount of rain that falls on the eastern side of the state's Cascade Range. 4. The federal government owns and manages millions of hectares of undeveloped land. Americans use these areas for recreational and commercial activities, such as fishing, camping, hiking, boating, grazing, lumbering, and mining. 5. Alaska, the northernmost state in the west it is full of great stretches of wilderness
