PC Trip Forks to Ocean Shores Wa Sat 9/19


We spent last night in Forks Washington. For you fans of the Twilight books, this is the city Stephenie Meyers based her book on. The hotel, Pacific Inn boasts Twilight rooms and there are references all over town. There’s even a tour bus to go to all of the different locations.

Today we went to the Hoh rainforest. It gets 142″ of rain a year, you can see the mountains shrouded in rain clouds of which we drove into, there really are rain drops in those clouds. But, just as we got parked the rain stopped and we were able to take a nice long dry hike . This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The trees, plants, moss, lichens and even the different slugs are all various shades of green. I took a million pictures but the pictures don’t capture what the eye sees, if you know what I mean.

This slug was trying to cross the path. Paul likes to move them off the path so people won’t step on them.

That’s it for this day. If you haven’t noticed I’m a couple days behind in my posts. I’ll try to catch up before the end of the trip. I feel like a reporter trying to meet a deadline. Thanks for watching.
