The Rain Forest Is WET

The Hoh Rainforest is located on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington state, USA. It is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the U.S. Everybody knows Seattle's reputation for being rainy all the time. Seattle gets around 36 inches of rain a year. By comparison, the Hoh Rain Forest gets as much as 14 feet of rain a year.

It is true. No one will surely know what lives and moves under that moss. Fine picture.
