Giant Maple in Quinalt Rain Forest.
The Olympic Peninsula is one of the few places on Earth where true temperate rain forests can exist. Every tree is covered with moss, the canopy is almost unbroken in places, and the light is filtered green on sunny days. An impression of great age juxtaposed with new life pervades these forests. Great design inspiration, and a fine place to spend the sabbath as well!
