Welcome to the second edition of My Great Outdoors!
My second contributor is the talented Jordan Voth. I first discovered Jordan's photography via a search for #thatnwbridge and have since continued to fall for his epic landscapes; from his local Washington forests and cliffs to awe-inspiring canyons and caves. Read on to discover his Great Outdoors.
"One of my favorite spots to explore is around the Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula. In a 30 mile radius there are a lot of awesome things to see, my favorite being Cape Flattery, La Push & the rainforest itself. It is located on the western side of the Olympic National Park and is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the country. The average rainfall here is around 12-14 feet (yes, feet) of rain per year so don’t be surprised if it’s raining during your visit. There are a ton of trails making it a great spot to hike through and see all of the mossy-awesomeness the rainforest has to offer. La Push is a great little town and the hike down to second beach is amazing. One of my favorite hikes to do in that area.
Cape Flattery is the northwesternmost point of the United States and looks unreal in person. It totally looks like a different country out there. The water is extremely teal & there are many sea caves along the coastline. All of these places are fairly easy to get to, just follow 101 North from Seattle and follow the signs for each. La Push is great to visit in the summer time since the tide is usually out much further and allows you to walk out on the beach."
