On June 29, 1938, Olympic National Park was established in Washington State. 🗻🌲🦌

Olympic has three distinct ecosystems, encompassing a variety of terrain, including Pacific coastline, glacial mountains, and (believe it or not!) primeval rain forests🌧🌳🌧🌳🌧. Western Washington is home to some of the rainiest spots in the continental U.S.

Did you know? The park gets its Greek-inspired name from the Olympic Mountains it encompasses. Its highest peak is Mount Olympus – visitors will not find ambrosia up there however… ⚡️🧉🦉
