The Hall of Mosses Trail in the Hoh Rainforest, Washington, USA

The Hoh Rainforest is one of the greenest places I’ve ever been too; the air is saturated with green, even on a rare sunny day.

The drive through the scenic Hoh Rainforest, followed by a walk along the Hall of Mosses Trail, was recommended to us by a woman in the Tourist Office in Port Angeles.

On the .8 mile trail almost everything is covered with hanging mosses, creating an almost creepy fairytale effect.
