Stepping onto Olympic National Park’s Beach 4 is like walking into tide pool heaven.
I love being in the middle of a moment and recognizing that it will make the highlight reel of life. I am talking about the moments which become fond memories that are retold at family get-togethers for decades. Last summer, my kids and I added several highlights to our memory reels while visiting Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.
Last summer my family spent some time in the rainforest. No, I am not talking about the jungles of Hawaii or the Amazon, but rather the rainy yet temperate forests of the Pacific Northwest. Washington’s Olympic National Park is home to forests filled with towering spruce and fir dripping with moss as they reach up towards a sky thick with waterlogged clouds.
