Huffington Post: The quietest place in America

From the Huffington Post travel section:

Back in the 80s, acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton began a mission to find the quietest places in the United States. Armed with a tape recorder, he looked for places where he could record a whole tape’s worth of sound without one human interruption from noises like planes, voices or cars. By the early 90s, he had concluded there were less than 12 of these “quiet places” in the entire lower 48 states.

And one of them is inside Olympic National Park. To keep this place ultra-quiet, Hempton launched One Square Inch, in which he makes extreme efforts to protect one especially quiet inch of the park, a particular spot on the forested Hoh River Trail.
