After my visit to Beach Four, I headed to the Hoh Rain Forest, a temperate rain forest, one of four in Olympic National Park (the others are Queets, Quinault, and Bogachiel).
Seattle has a reputation of being rainy although it gets mostly drizzle and mist rather than heavy rains, leading to an annual rainfall of roughly 3 feet a year. The Hoh Rain Forest, in contrast, gets around four times that, as much as 12 feet of rain every year.
