This is a set of pieces evocative of a journey down the Hoh River drainage, from near the peak of Mt. Olympus in the Olympic National Forest of Western Washington to the Pacific ocean. The river descends 56 miles through glaciers, rocks and then a temperate rain forest. The Hoh River Valley is very wet; it is perhaps the wettest spot in the 48 contiguous states. The glaciers of Mt. Olympus receive about 100 feet of snow a year, and the lower forests of the valley get 240 inches of rain every year.
