The only other rain forest climate I had been in before this trip was in Hawaii, so I wasn’t sure what to expect in the Pacific Northwest. Did I see green everywhere? Yes. Was there a blue sky? Yes. Was there oppressive humidity? Nope. In other words, it was delightful.
Green literally dripped from every surface.
What wasn’t dripping green was sprouting it.
I was hard-pressed to find a color other than green or brown. I found a berry here and there and a couple of flowers. Finding a flower felt like finding a unicorn. (SQUEEEEE!!!)
But I did find fungi.
Even though we came across other visitors every now and again, I truly felt like we were lost in our own little world. It felt peaceful and magical and I am so thankful my family let me wander aimlessly with my camera.
