Olympic National Park is known for it's Roosevelt Elk and many Black Bear sightings, but lesser seen animals such as the Mountain Beaver are very rare indeed. Mountain Goats inhabit the crags upper meadows of the range, while further down rodents, birds and various amphibians fill the valley floor. One of the largest populations of Mountain Lions can also be found on the Olympic Peninsula, and with so much unspoiled wilderness out there its very rare indeed to see one, though some of us may well have heard one screaming in the night, as I have. Please feel free to attach your own wildlife photos from the Olympic Range and make this album a beautiful patchwork of wildlife befitting the wonders of creation.
