Olympic National Park Day 2

Hoh Rainforest

Today we headed off to the Hoh Rainforest, which is about an hour away from our place. The weather called for 50% chance of rain, and fortunately the weather fairies were watching over us!

We made a few stops along the way to check out the sights
It was actually raining when we arrived so we got all our rain gear on to brave the horrible's Spaceman Spiff and her sidekick Poncho. 10 feet into the forest and the rain stopped!
While walking down the trail I noticed a set of antlers...when we surveyed the area, we noticed it was a family of elk!! We were literally about 10 yards away from him!
For all you Twilight fans out there...
