Hello, happy Thursday,
I thought I would take you back to May and our visit to the Hoh Rainforest in the Olympic National Park. We walked a few trails, one trail took us close to the Hoh River. The Hoh Rainforest is lush and green from all the rain received in this area. There is a mix of coniferous and deciduous trees, lots of mosses and ferns.
A view of the Hoh River and a pretty sky.
Fern and mosses growing on a downed tree.
An Elk trying to hide from us just off the trail.
Below a line of trees growing out of one old fallen tree on the ground.
Wood duck couple and some very green reflections.
Another look at the Hoh River.
Looking up at the sky thru the tall trees.
Below is the cute Wilson's warbler, easily id from the black line on the top of it's head.
The Northern Rough-winged Swallows were seen near the Hoh River.
There were a few ducks in this pond, but the Wood Ducks were a little closer for a photo.
Beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains and the Hoh River.
The Hoh Rainforest and the Olympic National Park was one of my favorite places to visit in Washington State. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend a visit. I hope you enjoyed my photos.
