I'm on my annual trip from CA to MT. Came up the coast this year to escape the heat I had last year in E Oregon and ID. Worked out well.

I've been to the N part of Olympic National Park a few years back, but never to the W part. Camped a couple of nights at the Hoh Rain Forest campground in the Park and really enjoyed it. Nice campground at $12/night, but even better with the Golden Geezer 50% discount.

Weather was perfect. I took the two short nature hikes (3/4 mi Hall of Mosses and 1-1/4 mi Spruce Trail). Glad I did. Here are a few pictures from those hikes.

Other pictures on my website.

Did you see any Sasquaches?
They are common along the trails!

A sunny day in the Hoh rainforest used to be a one in a thousand chance.

Fascinating, isn't it. I've been there........heard something I've never heard before.......I've been in the woods all my life and THAT sound frightened me. Nope, not a drop of alcohol had passed my lips. I seriously believe there COULD be a BigFoot after being in that forest.....you can't see 100 feet in front of you.

A guy no Olympic Peninsulans had ever heard of before that so-called "reality show" aired. For some straight local skinny, please check out this article from our local paper.

Sentiment of the locals about that Work of Fiction is best summed up by the following comment, here quoting from the many posted there:
