Sights and Sounds

A website can’t do justice to the real thing, but we’ve tried to provide a taste of the Hoh experience here. Click on the links below to view 1-minute Flash movies with sounds recorded by Emmy-Award winning sound recordist Gordon Hempton. Be sure to turn up your volume.


Wilderness - A passing thunderstorm mellows into the soothing sounds of flowing water and songbirds.



Wildlife - A symphony of croaks and calls, ending with the haunting bugling of rutting elk.


Fishing - Fish move upstream . . . A fly is cast . . . Fish on!
