Here you will find the longest undeveloped coast in the contiguous United States, with pebble-beaches, towering cliffs and offshore sea stacks; rain forests with moss-covered trees (the best example of intact temperate rainforest in the Pacific Northwest); glacier-capped peaks interspersed with extensive alpine meadows; and a stunning variety of marine and mountain plants and animals.
