Dark And Wet

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 27 April 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Comprising about 3600 square miles, the Olympic Peninsula contained many of the last unexplored places in the Contiguous United States. It remained largely unmapped until Arthur Dodwell and Theodore Rixon mapped most of its topography and timber resources between 1898 and 1900.

Olympic has a reputation for rain, and parts of the peninsula receive 12 feet of rain every year. We just didn't realize it would all be on the days we were hiking there. ;-)

We still had fun anyway. I'm glad I had my little Panasonic waterproof camera.

A very atmospheric photo. I like walks in the rain, but it must not be cold or even dark.

What are the walkers, in relation to the large trees, small.
A beautiful, little bit, gloomy atmosphere.

I’m glad the rain didn’t ruin your trip. This area of Washington is still not explored as well as other well-known areas.

Yes, it was pretty dry before you arrived and has been relatively dry since you were here. But, I guess the weather is getting at least a little weird everywhere as the climate heats up. You got some cool pictures of the wet weather around here.

This is beautiful! The rain creates a wonderful atmosphere. I love the trees. When I was in grade school we lived in Washington State and visited there a few times. I remember it being wet most of the time we visited.

We recently had a very similar wet walk through a small mountain range here in Western Australia. I can relate very well to the atmosphere you photographed in this scene. It was quite fun indeed and the we enjoyed the walk very much.
