Olympic National Park is notable for several features, none of which, has to do with a sporting event. Well, there are legendary fights between a Whale and a Thunderbird, but we'll get to that.

It is home to the Olympus Mountain range, with the tallest peak named Mount Olympus. While it's height of just under 8000 feet doesn't seem to compare with the Rockies, remember that the base of the range is sea level, only some 30 miles West of the summit.
