After entering Olympic
National Park, we stopped for a bite to eat at the venerable Hard Rain Cafe
and Mercantile, which had pretty good burgers, an RV park, and a few
souvenirs and gift shop items, including Hard Rock Cafe spinoff t-shirts.
Here they told us that the Hoh River Valley receives an average of over 140
inches of rain annually, compared to only 36 inches for Seattle, making it the
rainiest spot in the continental United States.
