Lake Quinault

Lake Quinault
This was our last destination in term of sightseeing. It was just an hour and a half from where we stayed last night in Forks, Washington. The drive was not bad at all. Many people is wondering “where is the rain?” since we are right smack in the middle of the rainforest. Forks has an annual rain of 12 feet, that’s 144 inches of rain about four times the annual rain we receive in Portland.

Arriving in Lake Quinault, I fell in love with the town, it has one general store, one museum and another small store doubled as our registration for the campground. It is located next to the lake and it is just plain appealing, one exception, the RV Park is not maintained to the standard of a good park and I have to tell the office to clean the bathroom before we settled in.

Lake Quinault is the home of the largest Spruce tree, located just one hundred feet from where we park our Wanderlust. It was really cold when we came in, later it cleared up to a sunny afternoon, the next morning it clouds up again, but it represents another opportunity for photography subjects that I did not see in the previous day.
