Typical Hoh

Hoh Rain Forest Moss

Hoh Rain Forest Moss – Olympic National Park, Washington

According to The Seven Wonders of Washington State, the Hoh Rain Forest gets as much as 14 feet of rain a year, and the prevalent fog and mist contributes the equivalent of another 30 inches of rain resulting in one of the world’s lushest rain forests. I was excited about camping and photographing in the rain and mist, but it never happened. I didn’t get the typical Hoh experience. I got 5 days of sunshine and elk hanging out in my campsite. The tent was used, but only because I was worried about an elk stepping on me while I slept.

  1. This is so beautiful! The image, of course, but the trees, the moss and the shamrocks are equally amazing. Nature’s wardrobe. It’s like a beautiful women draped in flowing silk with emeralds scattered at their feet. A wonderful capture, sir. It must have been a breathtaking experience to spend 5 days in the Hoh!
