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.
There’s a maple tree somewhere underneath all those dripping mosses.
The ferns blanketing the ground ensure that almost every inch of space in this forest is green.
Another enchanted maple tree.
There are also some huge old trees. I think this is a Sitka Spruce.
Maples and ferns.
Even the water reflects an eerie green.
The Hoh Rain Forest is a part of the Olympic National Park. The fee (in 2014) is $15 per vehicle for seven consecutive days, or $80 for a one year pass to all the National Parks in the US. The Park site on this area: Olympic National Park: Visiting the Hoh Rain Forest.
This is part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring, Green, Wood.
Such great mossy trees. Thanks so much for participating this week.
