Quote of the Month:

“It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds,

deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines." - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Upper Hoh Road is the road that takes you to the Hoh Rain Forest. It is a 13.2-mile road south of Forks Washington.

This is a very beautiful and scenic road, which offers great view. Driving along this road you will enjoy second growth forest. The forest that grew here earlier was blown away by strong storms. 

The Hoh Rainforest is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the U.S. and is the most spectacular place which is worth while visiting.

What is special about the Hoh rainforest is that trees there may be more than 1000 years old, and every tree is covered with its own plant life. This fact makes it an individual small microcosm.  The most predominant species of the Hoh Rainforest are: Sitka Spruce, Coast Douglas-fir, Western Redcedar, Vine Maple, Red Alder and Black Cottonwood.

All these kinds of trees you can enjoy while driving along Upper Hoh Road.
