The edges of the limits of human imaginations live here. Movies such as Twilight have been filmed here. This is where the ocean meets the rainforest.

Located in Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, lies the Olympic National Forest comprised of over 632,000 acres. Hike in a temperate rain forest, drive along scenic Lake Quinault, gather clams from Hood Canal, and enjoy the changing scenery from the Olympic Mountains to the sea.
