A last view of our Quinault ocean site

Almost a tunnel of trees heading into the rain forest area

Quinault Lake with Mt. Anderson way at the end(snow)

Interesting pattern to clear cut and replant the forest

Our site at Sam's RV park-Clallam Bay,Wa


We left Quinault casino at Ocean shores and drove past Quinault Lake( a glacier lake) and while reading about it, learned that the snow covered mountain at the end of the lake in my picture is Mount Anderson-my family name. Stopped in Forks,Wa. at the Forks Timber museum and information center. Dave enjoyed the history of logging displays and we got lots of info on the area-now to plan. The HOH rain forest is one of only 3 places in the world where rain forests are. We had the Teton hooked on so didn't have space to stop and take trails but drove thru and stopped for pictures of 300' trees with 23' circumfrences. Lots of Sitka spruce,Western hemlock, firs and Huge Cedars. They get burls and grow many trees from the limbs just like the Redwoods in California we saw. Found Washington's best grocery, Thriftway at outfitters center in Forks- good prices and nice people. Stocked up and headed for Clallam Bay and Sam's rV park, another Passport America park(a great one)
