Olympic National Park - Part 2 (Hoh rain forest)

... and we also spent some time in the Hoh rain forest. Hit the Spruce Trail one day, then another day I hit the Hall of Mosses (its real name) and the Hoh River Trail. Very cool. So many different shades of green, it was amazing. The mosses. The ferns. The more than 250' tall sitka spruce. Nice! Almost wanted it to rain while hiking the trail - almost.

It was great getting out on the Hoh River Trail early one day - it was totally quiet. Only sounds were a few birds and the sound of the Hoh River when the trail meandered close to it's banks. Even managed to surprise a few elk. Good stuff, would certainly recommend this trail.
