We took a trip to the Hoh Rainforest. It's located within the Olympic National Park. It is about a 3-1/2 hour trip from Port Townsend. It was a sunny day, but when we hiked some of the trails, it was still dripping wet from all the branches. The Hoh Rainforest gets 12 to 14 feet of rain in a year...and most of it falls during the winter season. There are a variety of trees including the Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock. They can grow over 300 feet tall, and 20-plus feet in diameter.
|The trail name speaks for itself.|
|Lots of tropical looking ferns and lush vegetation|
