Clearly a deep Olympic experience

It’s the 100th anniversary of the National Park System (NPS). Celebrate by going Olympic National Park in Washington State. “It’s the 7th most popular national park in the U.S.,” says National Geographic. About 3,000,000 people visit this park every year. In this park, you can climb into the mountains. You can hike in old rain forests. You can play on a beach and in tide pools on the park’s Pacific Ocean shore. In the photo, two kayakers are on Lake Crescent. The park has about 1,000,000 acres, so there is a lot to see and do.
