Like poetry, the Indian names and places and history enrich Washington State. The state is also known for its rivers, the thick evergreens, ferns, wild rhodedendrons, fox glove, moss, cool summers and its beauty. Lewis and Clark estimated the Indian's living on the Columbia River had 10,000 pounds of dried salmon in their stocks. In places the salmon were running the river so thickly it appeared you could walk across the river on their backs.
The SEA-TAC Airport has a river in tile running through it, brimming with bronze fishes. One even carries his airport bag.
