    I was actually thinking about the mountain views, like the one below. It was taken about 5-6 miles east of Hurricane Ridge, at the Obstruction Point trailhead. Olympic National Park is very rugged. The Indian tribes stayed out of the mountains for the most part, believing there was a central valley with cannibals and fierce animals.

    As for bears, for all of the time I've spent in the park, I've only seen one little black bear and he was making tracks across a slope. The park does have the occasional bear problem, but that is usually on on backpacking trails where people have been stupid with their food. You will see lots of deer and, if you are lucky, Roosevelt elk. They are the largest in North America.

    If you end up taking 101 around the peninsula, Lake Quinault and Lake Crescent make good stopping points for stretching legs or having a meal in a scenic and historic location.
