Olympic National Park Hoh Rain Forest

Hoh Rain Forest Hoh Rain Forest We went to the Olympic National Park's Hoh Rain Forest today. We were
expecting a wet, drippy environment; however, they have had a dry
summer (for them). Our rain coats were overkill, but we were taking no
chances.




The trees are HUGE Lichen on a tree trunk The sky was blue when we got away from the coast and we had a
couple of very nice short walks.
The mosquitoes were active, but Jan (a real Girl Scout) was prepared
with some Cutters.




Hoh Rain Forest I took my tripod and stopped every three feet to
take another picture.  It took us about 3 hours driving time, each way. We left in the morning, had lunch at the
rain forest, and then drove back to Discovery Bay. The day started out
*very* foggy but was clear and sunny by the time we got back.
