20 Photos that Capture the Beauty of Olympic National Park

If you're considering an adventure to the Pacific Northwest, your first stop should be Olympic National Park.

Olympic National Park is home to everything that adventure travelers think of when the PNW comes to mind. Lush green forests, raging waterfalls and rivers, beautiful hiking trails, and soothing hot springs dot the map of this incredible park. You can even book guided boat tours on some of the park's many spectacular lakes. Plus, when you're done getting dirty and exploring outdoors, there are wonderful options for comfortable lodging and delicious dining. That's the best of both worlds!

Check out these gorgeous photos from one of our Explorers Sonja Saxe's recent stay and we're sure you'll be inspired to plan a trip of your own. You can learn more in her story 72 Hours Exploring the Olympic Peninsula
