Here’s the transatlantic diablog map to track Forks, WA. Close to the Pacific Ocean and not far from Seattle.

According to the town’s own weblog, Forks (“located in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula”) seems to be a quite friendly place for people, vampires – and animals:

Forks has changed from a farming community to whatever it is now, and animals have remained important to residents through the various transitions. Friends of Forks Animals have a message phone listed in the phone book for issues related to animals in Forks.  A nice lady listens to the messages on a regular basis and directs inquires to the appropriate places.
