    The Cascade Mountains. As clouds come in off the Pacific Ocean, they're loaded down with moisture. As they're pushed against the mountains, they must shed their moisture to get over the Cascades. By the time these clouds make it to eastern Washington, they've lost a good chunk of their moisture. Therefore, it rains less in eastern Washington, making eastern Washington less green than western Washington.
