Lake Crescent

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 10 May 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Lake Crescent is a deep lake located entirely within Olympic National Park, Washington, about 17 miles west of Port Angeles, Washington. It is the starting point for several hikes, including Marymere Falls.

This lake is encircled by rolling, heavily forested hills with abundant plants and wildlife. After staying at what was then Singer’s Tavern (Now Lake Crescent Lodge), President Franklin D. Roosevelt decided to authorize the creation of the park.

The president made a wise decision. The landscape is gorgeous. Here came to mind the fact that Crescent is a Swedish bicycle brand that is highly appreciated by Finnish cyclists.

They use to have pictures of the giant trout that came out of that lake when it was a tavern and it seems like they had a gift store there also but not sure? Are those photo's still showing at the lodge?

@Jerry: We didn't make it to the lodge but we read that it was still closed for the season in early April. We had so much planned that we didn't have time to go look around there.

This is one of those photos that is perfect for a travel-log--it tells us where we are and shows us the beauty of the location.
