Eric Meola/Getty The Hoh Rainforest located in Washington State’s Olympic National Park is a pretty magical place. Bordering the Pacific Ocean, the rainforest region of the peninsula is filled with deciduous old-growth, moss-laden forests that sparkle amidst the infamous drizzle of the Pacific Northwest. While hiking, you can hear the crunch of a twig beneath your boots, and each drop of rain individually splattering into molecules as it returns to the sponge-like soil below. It’s so quiet and peaceful in fact, that it may be the quietest place in the continental United States. In the late 1990 s, Gordon Hempton, an Emmy-winning sound engineer, traveled the world, searching for some of the quietest places ever. He found it and in 2005, dropped a red rock, marking the tiny corner the One...
