Aug 21, 2018 - Days 6 - 7 on the Olympic Peninsula

Hoh Rain Forest Olympic National Park Aug. 16-17 Getting a place to camp in the Hoh Rain Forest Olympic National Park Campground can be tricky. Reservations aren’t available. It’s “walk-up,” meaning, if a site is open, it’s yours. With a motorhome, it also means, “Can I fit in that site?” In case we couldn’t get a site at Hoh, I’d made back-up reservations at a state-park campground near Montesano, even though that would have been a bit of extra driving that day. Check-out at the Hoh campground is 11 a.m. Even with the winding, lots of...

Jul 2, 2016 - Hoh Rain Forest & Ruby Beach

July 1 Day 13 Until the previous day, I’d planned that we spend the night in the campground at Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center in the western side of Olympic National Park. Those sites were not reservable. But “upon further review,” I proposed that we visit the Hoh Rain forest area, and then drive further south on Highway 101. That way we’d get into the KOA near Castle Rock earlier the next day, and be able to go up to Mt. St. Helens that afternoon. My fellow travelers saw the wisdom of that adjustment! So that’s what we did! The last time...

Sep 4, 2015 - Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park

now on one of our all time favorite parks! info from the National Park Website: Throughout the winter season, rain falls frequently in the Hoh Rain Forest, contributing to the yearly total of 140 to 170 inches (or 12 to 14 feet!) of precipitation each year. The result is a lush, green canopy of both coniferous and deciduous species. Mosses and ferns that blanket the surfaces add another dimension to the enchantment of the rain forest. The Hoh Rain Forest is located in the stretch of the Pacific Northwest rain forest which once spanned the...

Jul 8, 2012 - HoH Rain Forest & Lake

We have been having a wonderful time with Vickie and Sammy. We are making the best of every minute, trying to show them as much as possible. Today we took them to see Lake Crescent. Lake Crescent is one of the most beautiful lakes we have seen in our travels. The water is so clear it makes you want to dive right in. After enjoying the lake for a bit, we drove to LaPush and then to Rialto Beach to see all the driftwood on the beach. Our next stop was Forks, WA to meet Bobby & Liz for lunch. Sammy loved the huge coconut pie. :-) Our next...

Jul 8, 2012 - Forks La Push and HOH

The wonderful thing about a vacation is the endless energy one has to explore. On this day exploring we did! We started out visiting Rialto Beach, La Push, and then made our way to the town of Forks (you may recognize this town from the popular Twilight series). Finally we arrived at the HOH Rain forest. Each of these areas had their own unique landscapes and amazing beauty. Upon arrival to La Push I was amazed at the huge pieces of driftwood that had washed up on shore. The best way to describe the size is that of a telephone pole laying...

Jan 27, 2011 - Hoh Rain Forest

Today was one of those "Wowser" days. We visited the HOH rain forest south of Forks Washington off Highway 101. The rain forest is a not-to-be missed attraction on west side of the Olympic Peninsular. It was a long drive from Sequim, but worth every minute. Temperate rain forests are rare, only being found here, in southern Chile and in New Zealand. A temperate rain forest requires a mild coastal climate with rare winter frosts or summer temperatures above 80 and lots of rain. The average annual rainfall to this area is 12 to 14 feet. The...

Jul 27, 2008 - Forks, WA - Hoh Rain Forest

Dull, dreary, and damp would be the best way to describe the morning and there’s no prospects for much improvement if we are to believe the weather forecast. We had breakfast and headed across the road to pick up a few provisions at the grocery store; luckily, we didn’t need much because the prices were exorbitantly high. We weren’t surprised at that since Forks is fairly remote; there’s no Super Wal-Mart around the corner. Nevertheless, we know we couldn’t afford to live in Washington, not that we are looking for a place to settle down...
