Who knew? Stephenie Meyer selected Forks for her Twilight vampire series after Googling it as the rainiest place in the US http://bit.ly/9wswOE
Which makes me especially blessed to have enjoyed a week of excellent weather when I stayed at La Push on the Olympic Peninsula last March
It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been; huge, thunderous waves, vast trees hurled up on the beach, whales spouting just offshore, otters, eagles, sunsets to die for and a solitude that’s hard to find nowadays.
While I’d like to see the Quileute people do well from the new-found celebrity of the area, I also hope the inclement weather helps maintain the tranquility and keeps the numbers of visitors manageable.
