I mentioned earlier that my friend Tyler and I went on a quick tour around the Washington state National Parks. For our visit to Olympic National Park, we decided to spend the night in one of the motels at the city of Forks. I don’t remember the name of the motel, but I do remember that it was the only one in the city that wasn’t Twilight-themed.

Forks = Vampires; LaPush = Werewolves

Forks = Vampires; LaPush = Werewolves

You see, in case by some miracle you didn’t know, the Twilight books are set in the Pacific Northwest. Tyler told me a story that, apparently, the author Stephanie Myers never visited the area, but picked Forks, because it was reported as the wettest city in the US, and she thought that would be an interesting setting for her books.

Not far away is the city of La Push, which apparently also features in the novels. This photo was taken in one of the diners in Forks; while waiting to pay our breakfast bill, I snapped it with my phone camera.
