Olympic National Park
By Meg Leonard
  

1     Would you like to visit a rain forest in the United States? Olympic National Park has one. This park is found in the state of Washington. It is a temperate rain forest. This is different from a tropical rain forest. A tropical rain forest is found close to the equator. If it is far from the equator, it is a temperate rain forest. A temperate climate has four seasons. The weather is not too hot or too cold. All rain forests get a lot of precipitation. The rain forest at Olympic gets an average of twelve feet of rain each year!
 
2     The rain forest is on the west side of the mountains. The western valleys get most of the rain. On the east side, there is a rain shadow effect. The east side is much dryer. A rain shadow is the area that does not receive as much rain because something tall, such as a mountain, is in the way. The east side receives only about 25 inches of rain each year. This is very different from the west side!
