hoh rainforest

8

the hoh rainforest in washington’s olympic national park receives around fourteen feet of rain throughout the winter season, resulting in the lush, green canopy of both coniferous and deciduous trees seen here. 

and because of the abundance of water and nutrients in the soil, many of the trees have short roots that are unable to hold onto the wet soil and topple over. mosses and ferns cover the surfaces of both living and fallen trees, adding an otherworldly feel of this temperate rainforest.
