LOW NATURAL GAS RATES Are Now Effective In Sheton lnterestin[ Trip; Tips Given by Virginia Allison LILLIWAUP -- Mid-September may still not be too late for a trip to the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park. As wide- ly known as Hurricane Ridge it is the place where the principal rain forest trees. Western Hem- lock and Sitka Spruce. have at- tained their largest size. encour- aged by mild climate and 130 to 150 inches of rainfall a year. Allow a couple Of ,days to.fully enjoy this loop trip, now gay with Vine Maple turning red. The only ime you need leave Route No. 101 is at the Hoh River road sign where you travel 19 miles inland over a good surfaced road to rain forest headquarters. Pick up the guide booklet, at "gain Forest Nature Trail" at the spot where you register and do take that easy three quarters mile trail )ast the lettered posts where the booklet e xplains the meaning of what you are looking at. I Other- wise you wilt miss too much). It probably isn't the size of any tree you will remember the longest but the "nurse" trees and the weird hanging mosses. The tiny seeds of the conifers, unable to btain rooting on the forest floor o thickly covered with mosses and Oxalis clover, sprout readily from moist rotting h)gs, known as "Nurse" trees. Eventually sapling roots embrace the decaying logs, absorbing nourishment from them until the am'so log crumbles com- pletely away, leaving tree roots at various heights in the air. The Hall of Mosses. a grove o moss draped tree their branches touching overhead displays many varieties of moss; not parasites as you might expect, but epiphytes manufacturing their own food not robbing the trees upon which they grow. Take along fruit and sandwich- es as eating places are hard to 'find betwee Quests, the Rain For- est and Forks.
