When you arrive at Hoh Rain Forest, there is a hiking trail that takes you to the Hoh River. You can see the glacial silt flowing in it. Beautiful with the spruce trees, moss and ferns.

Interesting to see the river running through the rain forest! It is a bit difficult to get a really good shot of just how beautiful the area is due to the lack of sunlight! :)
