“Oregon Field Guide” photographer and editor Michael Bendixen shares stunning imagery of the Olympic Coast, at Washington’s Olympic National Park.

“When I think of wilderness, my mind usually creates an imagine of alpine vistas, tracts of forest and mountain lakes.  But when I hiked the coastal trail in Olympic National Park, I found it bewildering and uniquely beautiful, mainly because tracts of coastal wilderness are rare in the lower 48.  Please enjoy this photo-essay from this remarkable place.”
