OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK VIDEO: Diversity for days
Olympic was one of those parks we had been anticipating on our route for a long time. I’d dare to say it is the most diverse National Park in terms of what a visitor can experience – mountains, old-growth forest, rainforest and coast (Elizabeth will touch more on all these in her feature post). We saw gorgeous sunsets, rare tidal falls, teeming tide pools, solitary sea stacks and that was just in two days on the coast!
The cool part is the park makes you work for every view. The map of Olympic is huge. There are many different entrances and areas and there it is fairly unique in the fact that road access is limited. No roads cut through the park. You almost have to view it from the air to get a complete picture – oh wait, we did that!
We spent six whole days constantly exploring new areas and feel like we only scratched the surface. But I’ll keep this short because I want the video to do the talking. At almost 5 minutes it’s longer than most parks, but that speaks to the insane scope of what we saw. I guarantee it’s worth a watch.
