Team Jacob Surfs...

No pics this time sports fans, just words to float on your grey matter. Took a little trip to the Olympic peninsula and after crossing over the high divide trail at Mt. Bogachiel and dipping in Hoh lake up above 5k feet we made our way to the Hoh Rainforest Center.

Between us and the rainforest were the towns of Forks and La Push. On the road, boards on top of cars started passing by and I got all randy about it wondering where the hell they're going. Turns out in Jacob, Edward and Bella country there are waves, not good ones when I was there but good ones I've seen in the brochure. If you get skunked you'll still be in a coniferous gangster's paradise.
