Millersylvania – What’s in a Name?

We’d seen the sign many times – Millersylvania State Park – but with a name like that we didn’t expect much.  We were wrong – the park had everything! A peaceful lake for fishing and swimming. Tiny tables for picnicking. Trails through old growth…

The White Stuff

None currently in the Great Northwest.  No snow that is.  So for Cees’ Fun Foto Challenge I had to look elsewhere for white and found it to be in short supply. But then I remembered the picture I took in Carmel last month of…

More of My Favorite Trees – the Maples!

I love trees – all kinds of trees and thought I would share a few more of my favorites for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. How about those Maples?  There are so many sizes, shapes and varieties in the genus ‘Acer’ family, they hardly seem…

Under a Weeping Willow

I rested under a weeping willow. Its trunk was thick and twisted its leaves swayed in the breeze on supple branches upheld by stronger limbs above twisted too and content to be hidden. For A Photo a Week Challenge – Twisted. ~ Susanne

Walking Midst the Tallest Trees on Earth

I’m talking about the Redwoods of course! We recently returned from a trip to Northern California, home to the Coast Redwoods – and my oh my – those are SOME TREES! The drive there was magnificent too, south on Hwy 101 along the beautiful…

I love trees – all kinds of trees – so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.   I’ll start with one closest to home – in the park at the end of my street.  I don’t know what kind…

Blue and Gray and Cloudy Day

Earlier this week I found a break in the rain and got my walk in at Coulon Park where the clouds were awesome. So were the Olympics wearing both snow and clouds so it was hard to tell which was which. When I returned…

Tree Art and Sunset at Seward Park

We took a walk last night at Seward Park through woods of Douglas-Fir, lit up by Maple. Near the lakeshore this golden Madrona was beautiful alone, shortly before sunset over the lake. ~ Susanne

Lines, Lines Everywhere!

I headed to the park today on the hottest day of the year with lines on my mind.  Turns out they were everywhere. Thick as trees in the forest, mostly upright, side by side,  and crossing over. Lifeless as logs scattered about the beach….
