Olympic National Park, Washington

Olympic National Park is a land of beauty and variety. A day's exploration can take you from breathtaking mountain vistas with meadows of wildflowers to colorful ocean tidepools. Nestled in the valleys are some of the largest remnants of ancient forests left in the country. Olympic is like three magical parks in one. Take some time to explore its many faces!

Hi Flickr Friends! I've been gone a while due to some health issues of our disabled son and daughter which then also necessitated a much needed vacation. 😊 All are doing well! I look forward to catching up with all your wonderful photography.

This was taken at Cape Flattery, WA which is the northwesternmost point in the contiguous United States. There is a 1.2 mile (1.9 km) trail to access it which is managed by the Makah Tribe.
