One of the more interesting places we discovered was the Hoh National Rainforest, west of the Olympic National Park, in northwest Washington. Receiving between 12 and 14 feet of rainfall on average each year, the area is home to an array of plant and animal life. As a temperate rainforest, it displays a canopy of deciduous and coniferous trees. And the banana slugs, brilliant yellow and sometimes 6 inches long, are easy to spot in its verdant surroundings.
