I’ve been to Olympic National Park twice, once in the summer of 2004 and once in the early fall of 2008. I had plenty of sunny weather on the first visit and plenty of rain in the rain forests on the second, followed by sunny weather on Hurricane Ridge.
|In the Hoh Rain Forest, you can get a unique glimpse of elk amidst the greenery of the moss and giant trees.||Blacktails can be seen throughout the park but Hurricane Ridge is my favorite. The deer in the park are not hunted and will often pass close by on the trails.|
|Not only are Olympic marmots the only marmots in the Olympics, they exist no where else in the world.||A few of the other creatures that live on the Olympic peninsula.|
|Though one park, the scenery changes from snow-capped mountains to glacier-carved lakes to temperate rain forests to ocean beaches.|
