The first I want to tell about a lumberjack who wanders around the Forks Dam and about a pregnant woman who can be seen walking lawns late at night. And of course, I don’t want to miss to tell you about the fact that a very popular saga “Twilight” was written about this place. It was a usual peaceful town, where timber industry based in. But this love story between the girl and vampire turned this place upside down. Now, due to the Stephanie Meyer’s vampire saga this place is very popular for the teens and those who really love these books.
