  1. I’ve never heard of a tree with such buttressed roots like this being in the northwest. What species is this? I would imagine that the soil in that forest has very little low lying vegetation and nutrients.


    1. I wish I took a photo that included more of the trunk for identification but looking at the leaves below I think it is a maple. This forest is full of cedar, pine and maple trees with lots of ferns and mahonia as ground cover. There are plenty of twisted, exposed roots in areas without much ground cover and they were my favorite thing to photograph during this walk.


  2. The magic is in what is no longer there – terrific capture of time passing and the nurse log fading so the new tree can grow.


      1. My pleasure – I love the woods out here in the PNW. There is a magic to them and they are abundant with life in every nook and cranny.


  3. This is lovely,Lisa! We really enjoy running into trees like this. It makes the hikes that much more interesting. I’ll have to look you up on Flickr the next time I log in. 🙂

    Happy New Year!!



    1. Thanks so much David, it is nice to see a comment from you to start the new year! I agree, trees with interesting structures are a lot of fun to discover when we are hiking. I hope to see you on Flickr and have a Happy New Year!
