1967 in the rain forest in Olympic National Park in Washington, near the Queets River. There was a sign next to this tree identifying it as the World's largest Douglas Fir.
Springtime in Sequoia National Park, there were patches of snow nearby. In the valley below the rivers were running high.
Near Glass Mountain in Northeast California. Here there is obsidian and pumice. Was it snow that bent this tree?
Alder trees and ferns in California's Sinkyone Wilderness State Park. A short walk from this spot brings you to the Pacific Ocean.
