A Ring Around Washington
Exploring the coastal beauty of the Pacific North West
Discover the highest latitude rainforest, expansive tide pools, and alpine tundra along Highway 101 in the north-west corner of Washington state. Starting in Seattle, Washington, take the ferry to Bainbridge Island, connect with Highway 101 and follow it through Olympic National Park and down the Washington Coast. Olympic National Park is a strong contender for one of our favorite National Parks in the United States. The geographic diversity in such a relatively small region is mind blowing. Couple that with the nearby and thriving port city of Seattle, a ferry ride across the sound, and an extended coastal highway, and you have a classic road trip in the making.
Olympic National Park
Most of the thrilling vistas in Olympic National Park, from mountain tops to tidepools, are connected along highway 101. Hike through snow and search for sea stars all in one day.
