Lake Crescent The beauty of olympic national park

While in the small unknown town of Port Angeles Washington, one is able to see the breath-taking view of the Olympic Mountain Range. This great mountain range covers more that 5,500 square miles across four counties of rural Washington State. Nestled between these great peaks lies Lake Crescent, a good size lake that spans nearly twelve miles long.

On the road to Lake Crescent Lodge, there are many great views such as the image on the left of the breath-taking views one can find on the route through The Olympic Mountain range.

As you walk towards the lodge from the parking lot surrounded by trees, every person is greeted by the warm and pleasant sign that welcomes you to the lodge. A familiar sign to those who have visited before, and a welcoming invitation to those who are visiting for the first time.
There are many different things to do at Lake Crescent. One of the favorite things to do for a lot of people is to walk out to the end of the pier and look out at the huge mountain range that encircles the lake. It is a breathtaking view that will be engraved in your memory.
