Washington Has Its Own Area 51 And The Stories Behind It Are Truly Bizarre
Mount Rainier National Park is one of the most popular destinations on the West Coast, and it’s certainly a beloved treasure to Washingtonians. At a height of 14,410 feet, Mount Rainier, an active volcano, is the highest volcanic peak in the contiguous United States.
Visit the park and you’ll learn all kinds of fascinating facts about the area at the Visitor Centers, explore hiking trails and waterfalls, and stroll through the famous Grove of the Patriarchs. But here’s something you probably won’t read on any sign or in any guidebook: Mount Rainier is considered a hot spot for UFOs. In fact, the term “flying saucer” was coined after one particularly famous sighting.
Do you think Kenneth Arnold saw flying saucers in 1947? Have you ever seen a UFO in Washington?
