The city of Yakima, Washington, county seat of Yakima County, is located southeast of Mount Rainier. The name is taken from the Yakama Nation, a federally recognized tribe. The Lewis and Clark Expedition explored the area and found it to have fertile soil and lively wildlife, and this discovery helped to fuel the population growth, with homesteaders arriving from all over the country. The area is known for its apples and hops.
