The Olympic National Forest, coastal, and mountain ecosystems combine to create a spectacular wilderness park. With its incredible range of precipitation and elevation, diversity is the hallmark of Olympic National Park. Encompassing nearly a million acres, the park protects a vast wilderness, thousands of years of human history, and several distinctly different ecosystems, including glacier-capped mountains, old-growth temperate rain forests, and over 70 miles of wild coastline. - National Park Service


Come photograph the varied landscape of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula from the lush rain forests to high mountain ridges to ocean beaches. Early June will present us with rushing water, a green forest and long days before the tourist season gets into full swing.


Some of the places we will photograph include waterfalls, the Hoh Rain Forest (the quietest place in the US), the amazing Ruby and Rialto Beach, the magnificent views from Hurricane Ridge and much more.


LOCATION: Port Angeles WA and Olympic National Park is about 130 miles (2.5 hours) from Seattle international Airport. Forks WA is another 57 miles from Port Angeles. The Olympic Peninsula is large with the National Forest being over 600,000 acres.  Daily excursions will involve some distance and we will car pool whenever possible.
