Surrounded by breaking waves, stunning rainforests, wild rivers and breathtaking views, the landscape of Grays Harbor makes for incredibly scenic adventures. And, we try our best to capture those adventures with our cameras and phones. Like all adventures, they must come to an end, however our pictures will help us relive our experiences, sharing them with our friends on social media. While some share their wanderlust on Facebook or Twitter, the go to app for seeing the very best of a region is Instagram.
Used by nearly a billion people worldwide, Instagram connects us with others who share our love for the quirky, fantastic and beautiful. Throughout Grays Harbor, popular Instagram destinations await your discovery. Here are nine areas for Instagram worthy photos in Grays Harbor County.
Far from the highway, tucked against the southern boundary of Olympic National Park and Forest, Wynoochee Lake awaits your selfie. On rainy days, when exploring the Pacific Northwest may not seem ideal, Wynoochee Lake is transformed into a mysterious looking waterway with clouds hovering over the tops of stunning stands of trees. Wisps of white contrast against the greens and blues, turning this oft-overlooked lake into the perfect place to capture the soulful mood of the rainy, soaked Olympic Peninsula.
Just north of Montesano, between Aberdeen and Olympia, Lake Sylvia State Park offers lake and creek views, as well as five miles of trails. The trails lead to beaches, covered bridges and breathtaking outlooks. The park is ideal for a selfie or perfect for catching views of eagles, ducks and geese reflecting off the shimmering, shining water. While popular in the summer months, a spring or fall trip will leave you with images that will be the envy of your followers.
