Two Gorgeous Rain Forests of Washington State
Okay, here is my deal. I have been to two rain forests, in Washington State! Many are unaware of the rain forests that are really worth visiting. I have hiked in both and must admit, I cannot and will not favor either. I'd rather favor both, because they are amazing and feel so real and to breathe in that air- refreshing, I promise.
It's almost like the trees are dancing, moving with the lens. Like the story in the Chronicles of Narnia: When the trees would dance and they were alive, I can picture it, clearly. Can you?
The Hoh rainforest has many spectacular offerings. You can go and hike all day, see the beauty this forest offers, then go take a nice soak in the hot springs. Yes, after all day, and it can happen in the summer- all day in the rain, you can go soak it up in the hot springs. How awesome an experience that is to share with others. You should definitely give it a chance when it is snowing! Wowzer, that just is living it up, living life.
Very similiar to the Hoh rain forest, but I can promise this- if and when visiting your eye will truly differentiant between the two. :)
The Quinault rainforest has other opportunities... They have many trails to hike and explore. You were able to witness it, if you took the opportunity to read of Colonel Bob. You may be able to hike in the rain as well in the spring to summer months. That is why it is so appropriate to have the title of being a rain forest! After your hike, you can go visit the Lake Quinault Lodge. Imagine, sitting in front of an enormous and inviting fire, perfect after exposed to the everlasting and changing weather! Once again, ties into another blog. It most certainly has ghost stories of its own. Ask any of the workers there about Emily. You might be pleasantly surprised with the stories! Good stuff, I promise! Take care... :)
