3 Must-Visit Regions of Olympic National Park

Say you were designing the ideal national park, a SimCity for preserved land, so to speak—what's it going to have?

Let's start with trees; lots of trees, an ocean of trees—tall, green, majestic trees. What's next? Maybe some mountains; big mountains with snow-capped peaks and glaciers. Oh, and while we're at it, let’s throw in some crystal blue rivers and turquoise lakes. And to top it off, let’s add an ocean, beaches, bald eagles, salmon, waterfalls, elk and black bears.

Is this outdoor heaven? Close, it's Olympic National Park.
