Beautiful in the rain and not in the rain.

Rafted down this river and was surprised by the lack of rain on us going down the river. The water is blue/turquoise and has a lot of wild life to see. Amazing experience.

Driving along the Hoh River in the Hoh Rain Forest is absolutely amazing! It's almost as if you are driving through a child's storybook where the trees appear to be reaching down with their green limbs trying to grab you!! We were fortunate to even run into a herd of Roosevelt Elk. Just a totally terrific experience.

Interesting to see the river running through the rain forest! It is a bit difficult to get a really good shot of just how beautiful the area is due to the lack of sunlight! :)

When in the Olympic National Park, rain is expected. Since much of it is a rain forest, you will get wet. The Hoh River snakes its way through lush green trees and tall sword ferns. Even in the rain, you will enjoy the beauty of the park and the river.

I loved my drive along the Hoh River. The water is pristine looking and the blue colors that water in rivers should be! I could not help but stop numerous times to hear the water and take pictures. Beautiful and peaceful.

This river winds around all over. The milky blue color is beatiful and makes for some great photos when you have all the nice green trees and a cloudy sky.

Getting more than 120 inches of rain a year, the rainforest has to be seen to be believed! There are three trails at the visitor's center. Any of the trails will give you some great views. The shortest, Hall of Mosses is my favorite. If you are going to visit Olympic National Park, you must visit the Hoh Rainforest!

We did the Creek trail and the Hoh River Trail for about 2-3 miles, and both were excellent - huge trees, lots of moss and ferns, varied forest conditions, and amazing vistas of the River. Only drag about the Hoh is that it takes a good 30 minutes to get from 101 to the parking lot.

It was the most fun me and family have had in along time just chilling next to the beautiful river, talking and taking it all in. We will be back. Thanks!
