Ferns in the Hoh Rain Forest

Ferns and Oregon oxalis surround an old, decayed tree trunk in the Hoh Rain Forest in the Olympic National Park. Hoh is one of two rain forests in the Olympic Park and is easily accessible by car. Ashort walk takes you through many large, old-growth trees covered with moss. Ferns thrive in the shadowy light.

Up to 167 inches of rain fall annually in this area - more than anywhereelse in the continental United States.
