Olympic National Park, WashingtonOlympic National Park includes more than 70 miles of jaw-dropping coast spangled with soaring cliffs, tide pools, and untamed strands, including the driftwood-strewn beach at Kalaloch. From otters and puffins to the largest bald eagle population in the Lower 48, this stretch of coast is rich in wildlife. Chill on the gray sand and stare at the wild Pacific, knowing there is nothing but water between you and Siberia on the other side.
