Washington Payday Loans
Washington State is one of the most beautiful states in the country, in fact it has more glaciers than all the other contiguous states combined. Washington is the only state named for a United States president and it is home to Mount St. Helen. The mountain lost over 1,100 feet in height when it erupted in 1980 sending an ash cloud across the United States. Washington also produces more apples than any other state in the nation and Seattle is home to the first revolving restaurant.
