Rain forest, glaciers and wild Pacific cost – in one place?
Yes! Such a place exists – it’s the Olympic National Park. And yes, it is on the UNESCO list. 🙂

You have already seen the photos from incredible beaches based on the Rialto beach example.
Today, a few pics from the Hoh Rainforest that yearly gets 140 inches (3556 mm!) to 170 inches (4318 mm) of precipitation.
I guess I was incredibly lucky it was not raining the day I was there.

The Hall of Mosses is an easy 3/4 mile (or 1,2km) hike that kids can do as well.
