Forks is most commonly known as being the hometown of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen from the Twilight series, but it's also home to a natural phenomenon. There's a "Tree of Life in Washington" nestled on this coastal beach. Just north of Kalaloch Lodge, you may have never seen anything like this before. Even with exposed roots and no ground attachment, the tree is green and lives on!\nThe Tree of Life, located in Olympic National Park, sits on top of two sandstone structures, creating a cave-like area.\nIt has become a real mystery to locals and tourists alike. How does it continue to withstand storms or even live, for that matter?\nOver the years, erosion has taken away the soil for this massive tree, yet it continues to thrive without it.\nAccording to the Kalaloch Lodge website, there is no real explanation as to why it hasn't died or fallen over yet.\n"Healthy trees fall victim to our vicious wind and rain, but this one is cemented in somehow without having an anchor system in place. Surely there has to be some magical powers involved," says the Kalaloch Lodge.\nView this post on Instagram We found the tree of life!

All you have to do is head to the Kalaloch Lodge, take the stairs down to the beach, and you will find this incredible wonder.\nView this post on Instagram #treerootcave #olympicnationalpark #hangingtree #familytrip #nature #beach #travel #washintonstate #day1 #perfectweather☀️ #wonnatour #올림픽국립공원 #자연은옳다 #신기그램 #세월이켜켜이 #너쫌쿨하다 #가족여행 #첫날 #넘나멋진❤️ #여행 A post shared by Won Hwa (@wonnayo) on Jun 19, 2019 at 12:25am PDT\nOlympic National Park is home to tons of different sites like Hoh Rainforest, Hurricane Ridge, and Ruby Beach.\nThere are many options for camping and lodges, hikes, and views of the coastline.\nIf you are heading over to that neck of the woods, be sure to stop and see the Tree of Life.
