A lot on your plate
Washington state has a dearth of specialty license plates. When I drive around Virginia with Lisa, it seems that every college, every frat, every hobby has a colorful license plate that its devotees buy, and even Minnesota has a couple colorful plate choices. But Washington only has its standard Mount Rainier plate, although you often see people who buy the plate with a University of Washington or WSU logo on it.
That is all changing as of January, when Washington will offer this whole pile-up of plates. Lots of single animals (bear! deer! eagle! killer whale?) and a few scenic ones. The state parks plate, with a pretty waterfall, is my favorite, though I also like the lighthouse one. Sorry, no coffee or computer or Cobain plates.
