With such stunning scenery, it comes as no surprise that Washington strives to preserve its pristine mountain peaks, lush woodlands, and Pacific coastline. Come observe and appreciate nature at The Semiahmoo Resort, whose tide pools, estuaries, and waterways attract thousands of geese, ducks, gulls, loons, and shorebirds each year. This area was recently named on the Audubon Society’s list as one of the state’s top birding destinations. Drayton Harbor also attracts a high population of endangered species including the bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and marbled murrelet. Only 200 yards from the entrance of Mt. Rainier National Park, Stone Creek Lodge at Mt. Rainier is the perfect base camp for the eco-friendly traveler. Explore Mt. Rainier's miles of trails, which boast breathtaking scenery, deep old-growth forests, rushing streams, flower-dotted meadows, and massive glaciers.
