Drive to Olympic National Park

If you have a weekend and ready to explore Pacific Northwest, drive to Olympic National Park. You will experience three different ecosystems at one place, from mountains to beaches to forests. There is so much to do here.

Grab the map from Olympic National Park Visitor Center which is in Port Angeles  and entry to the park. We started exploring the park from Hurricane Ridge which is a  mountainous area.

When we reached to the view point, it was all fog. Fog was everywhere. There is literally a half a day’s worth of fun only at this spot. But, make sure you guys plan it on a sunny day.

Next, we headed towards deep, crystal clear, glacier-carved Lake Crescent.

It’s blue-green, incredibly beautiful and surrounded by the forest.There are few hikes too to get the view from top. We took a trail to Marymere Falls which was muddy but in good condition to walk. Few areas in trail were amazing.

Then we left off to Forks for our stay. Next morning, We plunge into the Hoh Rain Forest and started with Hall of Mosses trail. It was pretty interesting to see ferns and mosses everywhere and really big moss covered tress.

We have seen two ecosystems till now, moving on to third 🙂 Rialto Beach….Not at all a sandy beach.

Its more of a rocky beach. We spent most of day here walking on deep pebbly sand and we did a hike to Hole-In-The-Wall trail. Massive dead spruce tress and driftwood on the beach. It was beautiful with some wildness.
