and back again










Long hikes in mossy old-growth rainforests a hundred shades of green, walks on mammoth beaches, the perfect lodge on a quiet lake, the late day sun setting in front of the ocean, wild salmon, kumamoto oysters and huckleberry pies. Coming home, when I look at the clouds out of the plane window, I'm trying to bring it all home with me, so home won't feel so the same as it was before we left.

More pictures soon.
I missed you guys.

I can't tell which is more tranquil and soothing - the cool green forest pic or the driftwood pics. Um, I'll take both please.

Was this your trip to Vancouver Island and Olympic National Park? Oh it sounds heavenly. I didn't get any huckleberry pie when I was in that area. I see I missed out!

Isn't that the truth about the hundred shades of green? My eyes were on visual overload from our recent trip to Oregon's Willamette Valley. I've grown accustomed to the High Desert's dry, brown landscape. I think I would have wept had I been immersed in the Olympic Rain Forest's green splendor.
