The drive along the Hoh River is breathtaking. The walk in the National Park among the older trees covered in moss is a unique experience. This is a must stop on your drive down Washington's coast.

Again, photos don't do this river justice. The color of the water is almost tropical and the scenery around it is beautiful. It runs through the HOH Rain Forest and both the road and the hiking trails provide some great views of this beautiful river.

We hiked two of the trails and spent some time in the visitors center to ask questions. The ranger helped us identify a fern we didn't know.

Quiet, beautiful- we saw 9 seals swimming in the surf. Amazing. You need to be able to climb over big rocks to access the beach, but it's worth it if you can.

When you arrive at Hoh Rain Forest, there is a hiking trail that takes you to the Hoh River. You can see the glacial silt flowing in it. Beautiful with the spruce trees, moss and ferns.
