Olympic National Park, Washington

Olympic National Park is a land of beauty and variety. A day's exploration can take you from breathtaking mountain vistas with meadows of wildflowers to colorful ocean tidepools. Nestled in the valleys are some of the largest remnants of ancient forests left in the country. Olympic is like three magical parks in one. Take some time to explore its many faces!

Hall Of Mosses area in Olympic National Park, Washington. The temperate rain forest defied trying to describe the vegetation and Green-ness of the spot. It stopped raining just long enough to shoot this without waterspouts on the lens.
Joy and I had the opportunity to spend 20 days exploring Olympic and Rainier National Parks and the Oregon coast. The road trip covered 4000 miles. Coming from the brown of southern California, the intensity of the GREEN in the temperate rain forests wad almost overwhelming. The weather was tough (it is a RAIN forest!) and the light challenging, but it was a magnificent trip. I hope you enjoy some of the shots.

What a nice way to end a long day hiking in the National Park and enjoying the calm of the ocean and watching the sun set on La Push.
