This gallery contains pictures from a trip to the northwest of the United States.
The beautiful Olympic Nationalpark in Washington was our main destination , with side trips to Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge .

Specially the walks through the rainforest in Olympic Nationalpark were fascinating .
A walk through Hoh rainforest makes you stand in awe of nature .
The moss covered giants are up to 5oo years old ,
wich means they started to grow at the time when Columbus discovered America .

Not less spectacular are the rough and wild beaches in Olympic Nationalpark .
Rialto Beach and Second Beach , near the Indian village of La Push , are simply beautiful .
