Pacific North West is truly amazing and Quinault Rain Forest gives a good snapshot of its beauty. This is a calm and peaceful place with a lot of positive vibes.

I saw more elk here than other visitors. So beautiful. There were so many water falls. Hiking in the rain was a pleasant surprise, the trees provide a nice canopy so the rain was barely noticeable.

Many people do not come to the south side, but do not pass up on an opportunity to see a beautiful rain forest that is not crowded.
