Walking through Olympic National Park
I've never seen a rain forest before. I certainly didn't expect to
find one outside the tropics.
Olympic National Park
is certainly a special
spot. We managed to explore the rain forest on a sunny day, and then the
very next day we were above the snow line.
It was a good day for a walk through the woods. Michele and I both enjoyed the
chance to explore the Hoh Rain Forest Trail.
EVERYTHING was green. The fungus, ferns, and ??? were everywhere.
And there was plenty of water.
A creek flowing down off the valley wall.
The Hoh River
Lots of moss on the "Hall of Mosses" trail.
The whole pennisula was wonderful.
This was the view from our wonderful Bed and Breakfast
Victoria BC is off in the distance.
The view across Lake Crescent (west of Port Townsend).
