the-twilight-saga-new-moo-002This article from the UK Mail attributes a 1000% increase in tourism here in Forks to Robert Pattinson. Thanks Rob!! We hadn’t really thought of it that way before. . . . The article does a nice job of covering some of the local attractions, mentioning Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rainforest.

Yes, we’re talking about the vintage red truck (and popular local photo-op) that’s usually parked at the Forks Chamber of Commerce’s Visitor Center–located just south of Downtown Forks on Forks Avenue (Highway 101).
