10/29/2007 - The Quest For One Square Inch Of Quiet
October 29, 2007
The quietest square inch in the continental United States is -- drumroll please -- at a rock placed on a moss-covered log in the Hoh Rain Forest of Olympic National Park.
An Olympic Peninsula man identified the spot as part of his quest to preserve solitude in the national parks.
He writes complaint letters to airlines that fly overhead and sometimes even gets results.
Correspondent Tom Banse went with the sound tracker for a visit.
