The Olympic Peninsula, located within easy proximity to several metropolitan areas including Seattle, Tacoma, Vancouver, and Portland, attracts more than three million visitors each year. It is one of the most diverse regions in the country with spectacular mountains, rugged coastlines, and verdant rain forests. Join writer and photographer Mike Sedam as he circles the peninsula on historic Highway 101, taking time to visit scenic coastal villages, to watch a sunset from Rialto beach, spot a humpback whale, and to photograph the towering sandstone islands known as sea stacks. Then, head inland to the heart of the peninsula and Olympic National Park, famous for graceful waterfalls, breathtaking glaciers, old-growth rain forest, and an abundance of wildlife. This is the Olympic Peninsula in all its splendor and magnificence--in all its grace and grandeur.
