Paying homage to where I came from 💜🙏💜 A tribute to my Grandpa .. . His scale sticks, for measuring logs ...an odd treasured memory... That brings the smell of the earth, wood and my grandpa, delivering a big old hug to my heart every time I see them. . His picture I see hanging there, every time I go to the post office ...with the rest of the family tree... His brother as well as my grandma's. . I feel him here ..in the paradise I'm so blessed to call home, so very much ❤ ..always makes me wonder if he logged this property back in the day.. or if he was just here courting grandma... In her own neck of the woods. ......either way... It's good to have him in my home again ✨ . #ancestors #feelingmyroots #listening #connecting #grounding #oldgrowthforest #pnwlovin #pnwonderland #loggers #oldloggers #logscaling #mywoods #myroots #oneofthegreats #grandpa
I cheated on my Sugar detox. I love a good donut. Oh well. I'm making money and I get to go fish after the week over. Life is good. Here's a shot of Spirit Falls about a year ago. #river #cascadia #cascadiaexplored #pnw #pnwdiscovered #cascadiacaptures #photography # #oregon #oregonexplored #jj_oregon #tbt #tbthursday #throwback #throwbackthursday #explore #nature #naturephotography #adventure #hiking #trail #outandback #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #landscapephotography #love #eugene #eugeneoregon

Old growth
Morning Paddle, Sulphide Lake 24x48", oil on canvas • SOLD @assiniboiaart Super excited to find out that Assiniboia Gallery sold this one the other day 🙆! It's a scene from a painting and canoe trip I went on in 2013. I have never been so far from civilization! The reality of that fact hit Day One on the second of two portages while making our way to home-base. A storm that was behind us shifted and came up fast. The wind whipped from all directions and we were completely at the mercy of Mother Nature. Huge trees came down all around us and a branch hit one of the guides on the arm. I saw lightning hit a tree about twenty feet in front of me. It was intense, but the gale came and went fast and, thankfully, after that the weather cooperated. Aside from the chaos of the storm, I have never been anywhere so extraordinarily peaceful. We paddled past sights that took my breath away over and over again. I still get weepy just from the memories. It was an experience of a lifetime. I just checked and the website is not updated for this year, but there is info from previous years. If you are curious, go to www.canoeski.com and look under Canoe Trips-> Northern Waterways-> Canoeing & Painting in the Wild. Oh, and I had never canoed before 😮. Turns out you don't row a canoe, you paddle it 😀! You will be corrected until you get it right 😂! @ericasaskmama @randilalonde

Those interested in Mushroom Hunting in the Redwood Coast, look no further. “Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast” by Noah Siegel and Christian Schwarz is a perfect book for beginners and expert Mushroom hunters alike. Be sure to stop in at any of our 6 open Visitors Centers to check it out along with all of our other merchandise.
Here’s another detail of that 1 X 6 pine (cuz I know ya wanna see more shots of lumber 🤠🤠). I put the end of a nail set in the frame for scale. The grain is like a ream of paper in some places - unbelievably dense. This tree grew slowly, under drier conditions maybe. The board was milled roughly 100 years ago, which means the tree (some type of yellow pine) was likely old growth. The plantations today’s lumber comes from are comprised of fast-growing hybridized trees, planted in almost absolute monoculture. These vast tracts, a lot of them here in Georgia, are planted after timber companies have annihilated actual forests. Pretty much a net loss ecologically. Trees are harvested when still quite young. The wood is soft, resilient and spongey; frequently milled and sold as quickly as possible. It contains very little heartwood. Old wood like this, by contrast, has had decades to dry, the resins and lignin ossifying into hard, amber-like glue. I find a lot of times, you’re gonna bend nails on this stuff. #guitarsnhammers #oldwood #lignin #barnwood #reclaimedwood #oldhouse #craftsmanhome #renovation #restorereuserecycle #oldgrowthforest #agroforestry #georgia #southeasternwoodlands

I flattened the tree 🍃🌱🍂🌳 #explore #nature #adventure #hike #pnw #oldgrowthforest
Over the years I’ve seen many coast redwood trees gutted by fire, but this one along the Ten Taypo Trail in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park is probably the most dramatic. The fire burned out the entire core of the tree, making the trunk into a sort of chimney flume. Pretty amazing to look up from the inside & see the sky through the hole at the top. Fire in the redwood forests is a normal part of the cycle of life there & healthy ferns and other forest fauna are thriving inside this burned out tree. #redwoodtree #forestfire #forestfireeffects #TenTaypoTrail #burnedtree #charredremains #PrairieCreek #hollowtree #burnedout #guttedbyfire #sequoiasempervirens #coastredwood #prairiecreekredwoodsstatepark #humboldtcounty #insidearedwood #lookupsky #burnedtrees #giantredwoods #hikeinthewoods #natureisresilient #cycleoflife #oldgrowthforest #newgrowth #greeneverywhere #northcoast #northcoastca #redwoodtrees #redwoodtreescalifornia #visitcalifornia #californiabeauty

Had a great weekend hiking with the pup. Found this old growth forest and trails in the middle of a neighborhood. #pnw #hiking #chocolatelab #charliebrown #oldgrowthforest #salmoncreek #getoutandenjoynature #mycityiscoolerthenyours
Make peace with the unknown, for that's all that is certain. So grateful to live in this beautiful part of the world 🌏
