The Crescent Lake is one of the many lakes found in the Olympic Peninsula. This lake was created by glacier thousands of years ago. The lake is surrounded by beautiful lush mountains!

There are so many national parks and natural beauties in the Northwest United States. If you are not from this country and you are a nature lover, the best place to be is Washington State! If you visit the City of Seattle, and you cramped your visit for just a week, you can visit two countries at the same time which is the neighboring city, Vancouver, Canada. Also, visit volcanoes, lakes, mountains, islands and even Victoria Island in Canada! There are also hot springs in the Olympic Mountains, hundreds of beaches and parks. .. I was just telling my daughter that on the weekends, we can just drive for 30 minutes and we are in the Paciific ocean; drive another 30 minutes and we are in a lake or in the Olympic Peninsula or up in the Cascade Mountains! We didn't have to travel hundreds of miles see nature's wonders!

Seattle is so accessible to different National Parks. We are close to the Olympic National Forest Park, the Olympic Peninsula, and the Mount Rainier National Park.
