Ancient Forest

Olympic National Park
Washington, USA

It had been raining hard the day before and late in the afternoon it started to snow. The next morning yielded a dusting of snow of everything in the upper elevations.

As the trail went higher and higher the snow made its way from the tops of these giant trees to the forest floor. One mile on the trail passed, then another and another. Eventually the trail became completely covered, with up to a couple feet of snow. That was when I decided it was time to head back down the mountain. After a couple hours of downhill trekking I made it back to the trailhead safe and sound and without frost bitten feet.

Every step of the way the greens of the ancient forest were incredible. It’s rare that I am allowed the opportunity to hike in my own backyard, since I travel so much. It’ll be my new habit, hike while home.

See Ya On the Trail!
