Coastie hunter, I hunted in the rain shadow of Olympia Nat Forest in 2006, near the Skokomish river, sorry to say that hunt was busted by illeagal alians picking brush for florests, ( they where everywhere ) but it sure was beautifull. One of the rainclouds made it over the rainforest and dumped 2" of rain on us one day. Whooee! Luckely we saw the storm comming and had time to put up enought tarp to keep the camp semi dry, or we'd have floated down the Skokomish!
