Olympic National Park: Three Parks in One

We spent more time in Olympic National Park than any other other park on our trip.  Olympic National Park is very diverse and has so much to see, plus the weather was nearly perfect (except for some fog along the coast), and we were looking to slow down and rest after all the work required and stress involved with selling our house. 

The nearly 1-million-acre Olympic National Park in northwest Washington state is actually like three parks in one:

 

Olympic Mountains

The Olympic Mountains dominate the center of the park.  Please check out our photo tour of the Olympic Mountains.

 

Olympic Rainforest

The temperate rainforest along the west side of the park is the wettest spot in the continental USA.  Please check out our photo tour of the Olympic Rainforest.

 

Olympic Coast

And there is a separate section of Olympic National Park along the Pacific Ocean.  It includes the longest unspoiled wilderness coastline in the continental USA.  Please check out our photo tour of the Olympic Coast.
