Greetings from Olympic National Park!
Spent a couple of days visiting the beauty of this glacial gorge landscape and the Elwha Dam removal site. I am all for protecting our Wild Salmon -- however, I must emphasize that ALL our National Parks be protected. Let's not forget those who spent their lives doing just that, thank you!
P.S. I support the parks because… Wildlife habitat needs to be protected from development and we need places to share with children for generations to come.
Olympic National Park
Olympic National Park offers a variety of bioclimatic zones within its boundaries—high mountains with glaciers and flower-laden, sub-alpine meadows, deep river valleys draped in temperate rainforest, and wild, rugged Pacific coast. At nearly one million acres, the park is unique in that no road crosses its expanse, and thus, 95 percent of the park is designated wilderness.
