Local library posts verses alongside four trails.
For a second year, the Olympic Peninsula’s North Olympic Library System is teaming with Olympic National Park to offer Poetry Walks, displaying the works of famous poets alongside four trails in the park.
The program, April 13-June 14, will feature poetry along the Living Forest Trail, the Madison Creek Falls Trail, the Peabody Creek Trail and Spruce Railroad Trail.
Featured poets will include Emily Brontë, Carlos Castaneda, Ogden Nash, Shel Silverstein, Gary Snyder and more. Hikers inspired to write a poem or take a photo while on one of the Poetry Walks are encouraged to share it on the library Facebook page or share it on Twitter with #FindYourPark.
On April 18-19, the opening of National Park Week, admission to all areas of Olympic National Park — including Hurricane Ridge — will be free of charge.
