The Land of the Three Rivers
The cities of Pasco, Kennewick, and Richland, are among the southernmost cities of Washington State. Because of this location, the triumvirate, known as the Tri-Cities, enjoys a unique weather system that is uncharacteristic of places in the northern states.
The Distinct Climate
The unique weather of Tri-Cities, aside from the relatively milder winters, is the very dry climate that is comparable with the desert climate of Nevada and other southern states. This climate is conducive to a lot of recreational activities that make Tri-Cities a favorite destination for travelers and vacationers looking to escape the harsh cold of northern winters, but cannot afford to make the long and arduous journey of cross-country travel.
The weather is a very big influence on the lives of the people living in a certain region. The weather and the lay of the land dictate the shape, direction, and characteristic of any given place. Because weather and land features are a given and cannot be changed, it is up to the people to adapt and make the most of the land conditions that has been given to them.
The Tri- Cities real estate region is one such place that reflects man’s ability to adapt to their habitat and be productive in the process.
The Lay of the Land
Pasco, Richland and Kennewick are located where the Yakima, Snake, and Columbia rivers converge. The Tri-Cities area, since its early history, has always been an agricultural region because the land features make it an ideal place for the cultivation of crops. The warm weather, the flatness of the land, and the nearby river system which provides adequate and reliable water source, make agriculture a thriving industry in the Tri-Cities of Washington State.
The agricultural characteristic of the region has kept the place less industrialized and polluted than its neighboring areas. The area has been experiencing consistent economic growth over the past few years, with Pasco posting the highest growth in all of Washington State. This is solid proof that a certain place need not become industrialized to provide good living for its residents.
Agriculture has supported the peoples of Tri-Cities and has provided them with a decent source of living for a long time. How long this symbiosis will exist between the land and its people depends on how the residents value and respect the land that has unceasingly sustained them through all of life’s ups and downs.
The Tri-Cities of Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick is living proof that nature and man can live together in a relationship that is beneficial to both. The unique geographical elements of the Tri-Cities area was never deterrent to the growth of the region. In fact, it is the weather and the lay of the land that made this town prosperous.
There is so much to see and learn in the Tri-Cities region, as there is so much to learn any place that we go to. The lesson is clear as it is consistent: the people who thrive are those who give back to the land what they have received in abundance.
