Olympic National Park: Adventure, Explore, Discover by Susan Jankowski

Clouds that cling to mountain peaks, glaciers that glitter atop the Olympic Mountains, and the mysterious Hoh Rain Forest are all part of Olympic National Park in our nation's Pacific Northwest. Learn about the heritage and culture of the American Indian tribes with links to the area, and the park's unique geological features and wildlife including orcas, Steller sea lions, salmon, and the Roosevelt elk. Current environmental threats to the park are covered, as well as a wide range of activities that visitors can do there, like hiking, fishing, rafting, kayaking, camping, and skiing.
