This was taken on my solo hike up to Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. What an incredible day. Full of physical and mental challenges, but by then end, I felt an incredible sense of calm and contentment. • My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone dealing with the Furgosun Fires and all other fires across California. Thank you to all the fire fighters and volunteers. --- . . . . . . . #hiking #walking #solohike #treck #camping #explore #waterfalls #sweat #layingbricks #yosemite #nature #nationalparks #living #challenges #achievements #motivated #wanderinginthewoods #oldgrowthforest

This old logging road bridge was built out of old growth trees. Its lovely how those old planks are now “nursing” new growth out of them. The cycle of nature! #oldgrowthforest #loggingbridge #nurselogs #nature #forest #wildwestcoast #maryecoakleyphotography #explorebc
Ozette Triangle On the Pacific Coast of Washington is one of the more intimate, sublime, and textured coastlines I’ve ever experienced. The damp overcast March weather brought upon a feeling of closeness, an intimacy one might never feel on a more sun drenched coast. The small coastal rock islands and tide pools along side giant Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock which grow right up to the beach edge create so many micro ecosystems. Many of the old giants have also fallen and are slowly decomposing on the beaches. All this leads to a very different coastal interaction then I’ve experienced in other parts of the world. #ozettetriangle #olympicnationalpark #pnw #washingtonstate #cascadia #salishsea #outdoorlife #beachforaging #oldgrowthforest #naturalmeditation
After all the hiking and following signs I kind of expected the waterfall to be bigger 😃🤔 #hiking #pacificnorthwest #oregon #oldgrowthforest #bricecreektrail #outdoorphotography #waterfall #selfie
Vinatovača zauzuma 37 hektara šumske zemlje i nalazi se na nadmorskoj visini od 640 do 800 metara. Šuma je očuvana, bukva preovladava i zaštićena je prvim stepenom zaštite životne sredine. Priroda je netaknuta i do same prašume se teško dolazi. Drveće je staro i preko 350 godina. Ide se od Despotovca preko Lisina makadamom 15km do Kučajskih planina. . . . #vidisrbiju #mushrooms #forest #woods #vinatovaca #beech #trees #logs #nature #oldgrowthforest #naturelover #hiking #naturereserve #srbija #serbia #nofilter #roadtrip #localtravel
A white breasted nuthatch! It was a fearless bird. I remembered someone taking a photo with seeds in their outstretched hands and this bird gently pecking on it sitting on a human's hand. I stretched out my hand with no seeds and this guy sat on my hand to investigate. I deceived him but he was still curious and that's when I clicked this. The next time I visited I brought some bird feed with me but he was nowhere to be found. #bird #whitebreastednuthatch #ojibwaypark #windsor #heritage #oldgrowthforest #nikon #nikonca #nikond750
Visited the Blue Ox Millworks in Eureka. In addition to doing historical reproductions of millwork and crafts education, they have a museum featuring a skid camp and an eclectic collection of manually powered machines. Well worth the visit. Standing in front of a redwood slab from a tree that was over 1,000 years old when it was taken down. I get the same mixed feeling of awe and saddness when I see pictures of the giant pines logged out of the Eastern forests.

Digging further back into my vault of images from years past. Now going back to #VancouverIsland in 2006 as I was completing my courtship with Denise (@deniselm3 ). There’s something about an #OldGrowthForest along the #WestCoast of #NorthAmerica 🇨🇦🇺🇸 be it along the #AlberniHighway headed for #PacificRimNP in #BritishColumbia , #Canada 🇨🇦 or in the #RedwoodForest in #Humboldt #Mendocino or #DelNorte counties in northern #California 🇺🇸, it is a magical 🧙‍♀️🧙🏻‍♂️place where #BeautifulNature is realized... . . . . . . . . #bccoast #bcferries #beautifulbritishcolumbia #explorecanada #beautifulnature
I stumbled upon this #BFR today in the #jamespeakwilderness area. Truly awesome when you realize it rolled here from about 1/2 mile away after breaking loose high up on 13,291 ft #jamespeak a gazzilion years ago. My picture doesn’t do this piece of rock justice. It’s a #monster . Just sitting alone in the #oldgrowthforest that is thankfully preserved as wilderness. I can’t imagine the force as this rock plowed through trees 8’ in diameter. #humbled #straightouttanature
Opal Creek, it’s been forever and you’re still amazing. So much fun being off the grid with the fam. #opalcreek #oldgrowthforest are the best!
It would have to be one of the best times of the year to explore our #oldgrowthforest #winterdownsouth #justanotherdayinwa #australiassw #pembertonwa #lovemyoffice
It’s a half day’s drive from the sequoias of the Sierras to the fog-bathed coastal redwoods of Monterey County. This gorgeous specimen near Big Sur escaped the infamous Soberanes Fire in 2016, which consumed 132,000 acres and was until recently the most costly fire in Cali history. A hauntingly beautiful place, ashes and all. #coastalredwoods #cactiandoxalis #oldgrowthforest #montereycounty #bigsur #californiadreaming
🌳Listen.💚nᎥ.🌲 “Sit here with me and listen to the woods. Did you know the trees can talk? They do. They tell me all sorts of tales, for most have been here several hundred years and they have seen such things that we can't even imagine. Yes, they have spoken of the wild animals, the strange ones, and they have seen the things that made the huge boulders tumble from the ground. They have seen the floods that left these shells buried in the earth. And they can tell of people - your own ancestors. Put your arms around that tree as far as you can reach and listen ... What do you hear?" — A Cherokee Feast of Days ✨🌳✨ #cherokee #tales #ancientwisdom #listen #treesspeak #thestandingones 🌳 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Went on a hike with this wee one, my husband Phillip, brother in law Billy and good friend Jeremy at #ecolastatepark Elwood was so entranced by the trees❤️ He lives being out in nature. #naturebaby #hiking #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #oregoncoast #beach #forest #tree #forestspirit #forestspirits #forestmagic

Ancient Cedars of the Bruce. This is one of my favourite of the old growth cedars that I have found. It has a truck diameter of about 1 meter. The growth rings in cedar are about 10 per centimetre but as the tree slows in growth they can be as many as 20 or even more per centimetre. That places this tree at somewhere between 500 and 1000 years old. What makes this tree particularly unusual is that it growing very close to the waters edge. As if it is not precarious enough to survive on the cliff edge of the escarpment. This tree also has to deal with ice and storm waves. In it’s decay it is also supporting a birch, a spruce, and a balsam fir. #ancientcedars #ancientcedar #thosewhostray #brucepenisula #northernbrucepeninsula #easterncedar #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #smokeyhead #whitebluff #entsihaveknown
#FBF 2016 to our favorite hike in #Oregon along the #ColumbiaRiverGorge . #destroyed by #wildfires shortly after our last visit, July 2017. #EagleCreekTrail to #punchbowlfalls , along with many picturesque #oldgrowthforest trails are now #closed due to the careless, criminal use of #illegal #fireworks last summer. #heartbreaking 💔 #cascadelocks #PNW #waterfalls #hiking #Pacificnorthwest #forestfires
Sometimes on a hike, a sliver of light penetrates the canopy, bringing illumination, awareness, and a new perspective... #hikingphotography #findyourtrail #redwoodforest #redwoods #oldgrowthforest #contemplation #forestbathing #hikingmeditation #ferns #light #healingnature

The first cathedrals were in the trees. I was moved today among these trees...that they are such a generous gift to us...not to be consumed and taken but to be acknowledged, honored and listened to. #cathedrals #oldgrowthforest #godinnature #graceinnature #incarnation #catholicblogger #catholicmama
