Ho Rain Forest

Our last day in Fork's was spent touring the Ho Rain Forest.

 It is part of the Olympic National Park & Forest System.
The Ho River run's along side of it. 

The first big tree we came to was huge.
Here are the stats for it.

 The cones for these huge trees are small.

We took a walk on the Spruce Trail 1 1/4 mile loop.

 There are ferns.



When a tree dies and falls to the ground mosses and stuff grow on it. Then little trees start growing along it.

When their roots touch the ground and the nurse tree rots they are left in a row. 

Here two giants fell side by side. 
 This one tried to eat Donna.
