    Forks Washington Trip (pics)

    I took a trip to Forks last April...here are some pics


    Some barnacles


    The forest floor


    This is a boardwalk that went through a boggy area to a cliff overlooking the sea...


    Just some forest brush


    What, no rotundifolia!!! an outrage I tell you!


    The shore

    The sea!


    Overlooking the sea


    A sea cove


    A sunset


    An opening in the forest


    A shelf fungus


    Some sphagnum!


    A tidepool


    I decided to take a little trip, and stumbled into a bog


    Beautiful in its boginess!

    So what have we learned? there aren't any vampires in forks...and there isn't any Drosera rotundifolia either...but it was still one of my favorite trips of all time!

    yeah, no sundews ...but lots and lots of sphagnum ...I'm probably moving to either forks or florence when i start up my nurserery...perfect climate for temperate CP's...I bet I could even grow Nepenthes outside in the summer, given I had a shaded area...hmmm...you ever seen any purpurea in NY or NJ??

    Great photos, one day I will make a trip out to the Washington/Oregon area, It looks beautiful. Maybe next time you will find some sundews, do you know if any are in that area? Nothing like seeing wild CP's.

    Great pictures

    I love the NW. The beauty is beyond that which pictures can capture.

    One of my favorite places is the Oceanside area of the Oregon coast. Another favorite is the Port Angeles area of Washington. So pretty...

    When I got to forks, I searched the net using my cell phone to try and find a specific location...All I found was that they do grow in the Olympic peninsula...It's funny, I've been to the darlingtonia wayside three times, and I've never seen any sundews...

    uhg while i love going to Forks, i hate how its been over publicised because of Twilight
    im sorry but now that Bella has her own national holiday on her birthday (even though it only shows up on those callenders that old crazy cat women buy) i absolutely feel ashamed to live in this state, much less visit Forks now because of people asking "omg did you see Dr Cullins parking spot" etc etc or other twilight related things...i am so tired of Twilight!!!!!!!!!! maybe its because i work at Hot Topic and its our number 1 selling thing and all the little fan girls do is talk about how they want edward....UHG rant over!!!

    BUT HOWEVER, beautiful pictures!!! i love the red Sphagnum sp!
