Tis the Season for Change

No I’m not talking politics though that works too. I’m talking seasons which always arrive just in time, none with more fanfare than fall. Still it’s a process as trees take their time to change color and shed their leaves. The Gingko Biloba wore… Continue Reading “Tis the Season for Change”

My Happy Place is in the Woods – All Kinds of Woods

I’ve always loved the woods – all kinds of woods – from the dense forests of the national parks – to smaller local woods where tiny bursts of light and color compete with green. The woods have been my happy place, a refuge from… Continue Reading “My Happy Place is in the Woods – All Kinds of Woods”

Ohanapecosh! A Day Trip to Mt. Rainier

I’m lucky to have Mt. Rainier National Park in my backyard – close enough to make a day trip whenever the mood strikes. Yesterday it did and we headed south to Ohanapecosh. The Ohanapecosh River is perhaps the most beautiful river in the park,… Continue Reading “Ohanapecosh! A Day Trip to Mt. Rainier”

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… Continue Reading “Walking Midst the Tallest Trees on Earth”

Another One of my Favorite Trees: the Madrona

I recently shared a few of my favorite trees (here if you missed it) but didn’t have room to include them all.  So this post is dedicated to another beauty – the Pacific Madrona – or Madrone if you prefer. A native of the… Continue Reading “Another One of my Favorite Trees: the Madrona”
