OLYMPIC RAINFOREST

If you follow us on Instagram, you would have probably seen that Kylee and I {Taylor here} recently just went on a 2 week road trip through almost all of the Western States. Our big loop started in Arizona, went up through Utah to Montana, across Idaho + Washington, then back down through Oregon + California.

Of all the places we saw along the way, the Olympic Rainforest was by far our favorite.

Here’s the essence of the place in 16 photos + 16 words.

Recommended places: 

  • Explore: Hoh National Rainforest ~ the Hall of Mosses lives up to everything you think it would be + more. What I loved most about it was the quiet stillness. Though we didn’t run into many people, everyone was so enthralled gazing in wonderment that no one was loud or talkative. Mindful presence + deep appreciation.
  • Explore: Maymere Falls ~ short hike to a gentle waterfall. Despite how small it looks, you will get pretty misty!
  • Explore: We didn’t make it in time to see the tide pools, but the last 2 photos were at Kalaloch Beach. If you’re looking for gorgeous drift wood, this place is a treasure find. Plus, we loved the little tipi we found.
  • Camp: Sol Duc Falls Campground ~ this is where we stayed for 2 nights. So gorgeous. Next to a river + hot springs!

Tips + tricks: 

  • It’s a RAINFOREST, so it is going to rain. Bring water proof e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
  • If planning to build a fire, pick up a bundle of wood BEFORE you get into the forest. You won’t be able to forage anything dry, and the air is SO moist, that even dry wood soaks up moisture.

– Naturally inspired. Locally aware. Universally beautiful. With love, Taylor.
