Ferns

The tallest ferns I have ever seen were in the Hoh Rainforest. Groves of 6′-8′ ferns, as a couple of these images show, are just amazing to see.

On to Lake Crescent in the next post ( I think).

Hoh Rainforest

Moss dripping from large trees and huge ferns on the forest floor. There was a nice hike from the Rangers Station to the Hoh River. We arrived in the mid morning time frame and there was already quite a few people parked and hiking the trail; people from all over the world. As we left around 2:00pm there was a lineup of vehicles, at least 60, waiting to get into the park.

It’s a pretty amazing place and well worth your time to drive 16 miles from Highway 101, on a very winding road, to reach the this National Park.

Images of the Hoh River in the next installment.
