Pure = Nature

Hoh Rainforests, Olympic National Park, WA

The Hoh area is a mixture of colors so pure and primitive, they are nearly impossible to photograph. From the deep greens of the rainforest, to the eternally wet browning black of the soil, the hues of the Hoh are only found in this temperate rainforest.

The most common types of trees that grow in the Hoh Rain Forest are Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock (Washington’s official state tree), which can reach over 300 feet high and seven feet in diameter.

Most of them are covered with huge clumps of hanging moss and ferns. Moss is an epiphyte, which is a plant that grows on another plant without harming it (as opposed to a parasite). Epiphytes get their moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, fog, and debris that accumulates around them.
