Washington Apples
Washington is in the top ten leading producers of blueberries in the united states.
According to bestapples.com, "The apple industry got started in 1826 when the first settlers that came to Washington discovered that the rich soil and the sunshine was perfect for growing apples. The climate was also helpful for growing apples since there would be less insects and disease problems which made the smooth finish on the apples." In order for the apple industry to become larger, the irrigation canals were made to do so.
With this invention, the apple industry expanded through out Washington state in order to "produce about 70 percent of the apples in the United States" according to agmrc.org.
Without these things happening, we wouldn't be able to make a large amount of apples to send through out the world.

How were the Okanogan Highlands formed?
They were formed by "terrane accretion, Eocene extension and volcanism, and glaciation" according to okanoganhighlands.org, over 200 million years ago. Accretion happened when "volcanic islands built on oceanic crust were shoved onto the continent" according to okanoganhighlands.org, which formed an accreted terrane in the Okanogan Highlands 200 to 180 million years ago. Then, the crust thats under the Highlands was extended and shattered because, of the eruption of the volcanos that were around the Highlands 60 to 40 million years ago. Finally, Glaciers kept shaping the surface, ridges, and peaks of the Highlands and "lakes formed in the valleys of the Columbia and Pend Oreille Rivers" according to dnr.wa.gov over 2.6 million to 12,000 years ago. After these major geologic processes, they make the beautiful Okanogan Highlands that we have today.
