19 Adventures in Olympic National Park

Featuring a park in our home state of Washington on this episode, we discuss some of the highlights and must-sees at Olympic National Park. From the rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean to the blue glaciers hanging off steep alpine cliffs, Olympic NP has something for everyone. Only a short day trip from the Seattle metro area, you can drive to many of the most spectacular sites within the park in a few hours. If you are a little more adventurous, backpacking through the park gives you a less-crowded perspective on the wild beauty of this “magical” place. We even give you a small peek into what it’s like traveling with us by playing an audio recording we made during one of our more challenging adventures. 

Some topics we discuss include:

  • Yes? No? Maybe? Whether or not we plan to write another book
  • Four seasons of fun up at Hurricane Ridge
  • Where to go to see what’s left from the largest dam removal project in history, where you can peer into the canyon below at the newly-freed, rushing Elwha River
  • The myriad of activities at beautiful Lake Crescent: in the water, on the beach and on the nearby trails.
  • Our three-day adventure hiking the High Divide / Seven Lakes Basin Trail which started out with some wild weather
  • The magic of the Hoh Rain Forest
  • What we found–and didn’t find—during our backpacking trip along Shi Shi Beach on the coast of the Pacific Ocean
  • And more…
  • In the mail bag segment, we discuss some of our scariest hikes while traveling to all of the national parks.
