Surprised by Rainforest

This week we happened upon the Temperate Rainforest of the Carbon River Valley just inside the remote northwest corner of Mt. Rainier National Park and enjoyed a lovely walk through the woods. Who knew?

Blessed to have all this so close to home!

  1. Beautiful! That middle picture made me think of the deep, dark forests of fairytales, where all manner of strange creatures lurk in the shadows…

    • Yes, the rainforest is a rather mysterious place… I wouldn’t want to be there alone in the dark! I’m also reminded of those words from Robert Frost’s beautiful poem, ‘ the woods are lovely, dark, and deep….”

    • Thank you! We’ve been to the rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula many times but didn’t know there was rainforest closer by on Mt Rainier. A wonderful discovery! 🙂
