Did you know that there is a rainforest in the continental United States? It is the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park in Washington State. Our family visited this scenic spot on a surprisingly sunny day in 2008. There is a short, but beautiful loop trail from the visitor’s center on which we navigated an umbrella stroller. I recommend the trail, but not the stroller if you can help it.
If you are a fan of the Twilight series, Forks is the town nearest the Hoh Rainforest. We stopped there for lunch on our way to the park. The first film was in the making at that time and while the town was not a hot tourist destination yet, the local diner did feature the Bella Burger.
