Hoh Rainforest

December 15, 2009

October 7th

I got a very early start yesterday to drive about 1 hr from La Push to the Hoh Rainforest. I wanted to get there early before the bright sunlight made photographing in the forest impossible. I arrived just as it started to get light and headed down the Hall of Mosses trail. It was a beautiful hike but the light did change rather quickly. Nevertheless I was still able to capture a few pictures of this magical place.

Afterward I continued my journey towards Bainbridge Island. I drove past beautiful Lake Crescent and stopped for a hike along the Hurricane Ridge Trail with a wonderful view of the Olympic mountains. It was mid-day, so the light was far from ideal for photography, but it was still a very enjoyable hike. I can’t believe people ride their bicycle up here. It is a 18 mile long road, going from sea level to 5700 feet (1700 m).

After spending the night on  Bainbridge Island I took the early morning ferry to Seattle. I stopped by Art Wolfe’s gallery and enjoyed his “Travels to the Edge” exhibit before continuing to the airport for my flight home.

This is most certainly a beautiful part of the country and I can’t wait to travel back there and explore it further.
