Plants, Trees, & Animals of Olympic National Park
We just got back from an incredible adventure along the East Fork of the Quinault River. Most people refer to this place as "Enchanted Valley." In our newest podcast episode we are discussing different medicinal plants, animals, and the spectacular trees found in this lush river valley.
Thanks to FDR making the valley part of the national park, this sacred land was saved from the loggers 100 years ago. A tiny slice of pristine wilderness preserved for us to enjoy.
