Let’s Go on an Adventure • Olympic National Park

Since I moved to Seattle 4 years ago, I’ve been really into exploring the PNW. I’m going to start sharing some of my favorite places on my blog, so stay tuned for more. First up is the Olympic National Park, which I’ve now visited twice and would still love to go back. It’s full of so many beautiful forests, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, hikes, views, hot springs and more. It’s a really good area to visit for a sampling of the gorgeous landscape the PNW has to offer.

Cape Flattery Hike- The most Northwestern part of the U.S. This is the view. It’s hard to tell how massive the space is from the photo, but its breathtaking in person.
