Olympic National Park first became famous for rainforests and glaciers set within a magnificently large area of mountain wilderness. Now, though, it is known far and wide for still another glory—the last long stretch of wilderness ocean beach remaining in the coterminous United States. North and south from the Quillayute River extend miles and miles of coastline that are now almost exactly as they were before Columbus —except that in 1492 (and until fairly recent times) Indians had permanent homes and temporary camps at many places along the coast now deserted.
