'Deer watching tourists at Hurricane Ridge'
© Copyright Northwest Scenescapes 2008

website

This deer was so intent on watching tourists near the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center that she did not see me.

Glacier capped mountains, wild Pacific coast and magnificent stands of old-growth forests, including temperate rain forests -- at Olympic National Park, you can find all three. About 95% of the park is designated wilderness, which further protects these diverse and spectacular ecosystems.

Olympic is also known for its biological diversity. Isolated for eons by glacial ice, and later the waters of Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Olympic Peninsula has developed its own distinct array of plants and animals. Eight kinds of plants and 15 kinds of animals are found on the peninsula but no where else on Earth.

July 14 Beautiful!! by Stewie from Tacoma
I have loved this Park for years! The view from Mt Eleanor was spectacular; the snow is fun to play in; if you can find the hotsprings, enjoy!
