My sister and her boy friend just got back from their vacation in the Hoh Rain Forest and sent me some great photographs. My envy knows no bounds. The place looks amazing and primordial.

“The Hoh Rain Forest is one of the few temperate rain forests in the world, and is also the largest. It is located on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington state, USA. Within Olympic National Park, the forest is protected from commercial exploitation. This includes 38 km of low elevation forest (120 to 760 m) along the Hoh River. Between the park boundary and the Pacific Ocean, 48 km of river, nearly all of the forest has been logged within the last century.” — Wikipedia
