My wife and I were fortunate enough to take a 27-day road trip from Wisconsin through the Canadian Rockies and many of the Washington and Oregon Parks during the Summer of 2011. All told, we visited 7 National Parks (2 Canadian) and covered just over 7100 miles. This is one of my favorite pics from the trip of the two of us in the roots of a large driftwood tree on the Washington coast of Olympic National Park.
North Cascades National Park Service Complex encompasses 684,000 acres of wilderness, trails, and rivers, as well as Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Mount Rainier National Park is just an hour’s drive from Seattle, but it feels much further away. Enjoy hiking, scenic drives, and even mountain climbing in this untouched wilderness.
