A Visitor's Experience "I was at the Lake Quinault Inn last February when I was shocked by an incredibly loud noise right over the lodge – clearly some sort of airplane. Even though I was standing right at the check-in desk when it happened, the employees acted as if they had heard nothing and would not tell me what the noise was. It was only when I searched the internet that I realized what I had heard. Seems like the park service employees have been instructed to simply ignore this horrible intrusion to the peace and quiet of the rain forest."
