Upon my reporting for PlanetWare.com this summer, I had the opportunity to spend time in all three of Washington’s National Parks. Mount Rainier brought me stiff hiking legs checking out the Skyline Trail and Mother Mountain Loop (including Spray Falls). I fell in love with Olympic the moment I met the rain forest, and my time spent on the beach was well rewarded with excellent views. North Cascades topped it all with upright mountain peaks, turquoise waters and some excellent campgrounds. Check out some of the visual action below.
