These mountains and forests are doing well in keeping me occupied. The more time I spend in a particular area, the more I see within the surrounding woods. It’s very easy to quickly get lost in the depth of all the greenery here in the Cascades; but when you look past the sheer number of green colors, you begin to see the thousands of plants and animals that make up all this. From the mice running around the forest floor to the 15 story high Douglas fir trees towering above, every part of the forest is a small piece of an overall environment. I’ve got some more days ahead of me exploring these beautiful forests, so stay tuned for more pictures coming soon!
Pictures from Days 31-32:
Waterfalls are everywhere in these mountains, just hidden by thick forests.
In the old forest woods, light is prevalent at the top but becomes much scarcer closer towards the ground.
These fir trees were the giants of the forest. They would rise sometimes twice as high as any other tree type around them. Literally the skyscrapers of the woods.
Mt. Baker seen through the forest.
One of the nicest sunsets I’ve seen in a while.
And then the sunset turned red.

It’s easy to get lost in the depths of these woods.
