This morning we left Port Angeles, WA and headed to Forks, WA. Forks is a small town in Northwest Washington near the Pacific Ocean and is also about 45 minutes from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park.
On the way we stopped and had breakfast at the clear emerald green Lake Crescent (on the north side of Olympic National Park.)

The Hoh Rain Forest receives about 200 inches of rainfall each year and is the only coniferous rain forest in the world.

Hiking the Hall of Mosses Trail in the rain forest. Yes… it did rain all day in the rain forest.
Carlye & Alyssa just had to climb all the fallen trees.

After leaving the rain forest we went to our motor home for dinner then went to Rialto Beach on the Olympic Coast where we picked up a lot of amazing rocks.
