Summer Trip 2021, Olympic National Park, Washington State

 Olympic National Park

Mora Campground

Located inland from the Pacific Ocean is the Mora area. It is characterized by towering trees, lush undergrowth and the omnipresent roar of the Pacific Ocean in the background. The park is located on Olympic Peninsula. There are four regions in the park, the Pacific coast line, alpine areas, west-side temperate rainforest and the forests of the drier east side. 

Our campsite at Mora

Rialto Beach

The coast is amazingly rugged with large boulders and tidal pools

Star Fish are common in the tidal pools

Make shift shelter made by campers from logs gathered from the beach

Campers love Rialto Beach, it is a very unique place that draws nature lovers

While at Mora we drove over to the Hoh rain forest which is also in the Olympic National Park. The rain forest is a special place which makes you feel small as all the plant life is lush and the forest is old growth that towers over your head to heights of over 300 feet.

Olympic National Park in far northwest Oregon is a unique place with so much beauty. I highly recommend taking in this special park if you are in Washington, it is truly spectacular.
