Unlike any forest I’ve ever seen, the Hoh Rain Forest in northwestern Washington State, is dense with ancient conifers covered with beards of hanging moss surrounded by ferns and dense undergrowth.Photographers visiting the Olympic National Park must add this remote forest fantasy to their itineraries to capture the dripping landscapes, glacier-fed rivers and waterfalls. Too crowded in the summer, spring and autumn are the best times for photography. A mid-winter visit will reveal the most dramatic rain forest images but you may be rained out.A four-hour drive from Seattle will take you into the heart of the Hoh Rain Forest.
Issue #130 - The Hoh Rain Forest, Washington of my Photograph America collection includes the best beaches for photography along the Pacific Coast.
