Washington’s Olympic Peninsula-a slideshow

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is located on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, a unique natural biome of the world. Surrounded by water on three sides, the Peninsula is a haven for people interested in marine activities such as boating and fishing. Mossy rain forests create native habitat for a host of wild animals.

Home to the Olympic National Park, the peninsula attracts visitors from around the world. Natural wonders include the Olympic Mountains and the Olympic National Forest.

The Peninsula has some of the most pristine Pacific Ocean beaches in the United States. You can visit Lake Ozette near the coast and take a day hike out to the beaches where you will see sand as well as logs, estuaries and sea stacks.

Tribal communities include Neah Bay, Elwah and Jamestown S’Klallam Tribes, who participate each year in the annual Canoe Journey. The Olympic Culinary Loop and local Wineries provide special events and tours that will satisfy everyone’s taste for fine food and beverages.
