09/13/09 - The Hoh Rain Forest

The sign at the Rain Forest Cafe on the road to the Hoh Rain Forest says "When you see rain, think of us." So, now that the fall rainy season has started, we've been thinking of the Hoh Rain Forest. Of course, we chose a nice sunny day and hiked up to Five Mile Island for a picnic. We were well rewarded. The forest was as beautiful as ever, and the river as wild.
