It has yet to snow in Seattle this winter, but its been mighty cold enough lately. Thankfully the clear sunny skies have prevented such an occurrence. Don’t get me wrong, I like snow, I’d just prefer it to be on my own terms. Meaning in the mountains, and not the city where it makes daily life a pain.

This image was made last January, when I made the drive out to the Mountain Loop Highway for an afternoon hike along the Old Sauk River Trail. Perhaps the recent snow scared people away, as I had the entire forest to myself. Only the soft crunch of my boots on the snow (and at times the rushing sounds of the Sauk River) broke the serene silence of the slumbering forest of old growth Douglas Fir.

Happy Tree Tuesday everyone!

  1. How cool (both figuratively and literally) to have the whole forest to yourself. How about I send you some of our 80 degree winter weather to warm your toes? 😉
