Let's take a walk.
Since you can't very easily see the tops, you can tell the kind of tree by the bark. These Sitka spruce have scaly bark.
Cal you tell it gets wet here?
We were following the McAllister Creek Trail.
This huge spruce will soon be a host to other life, as it is now dead, as you can see from its crown.
Just like these dead-wood hosts.
Peek-a-boo. This tree originally grew on a nurse log. The log rotted away and left this living sculpture.
Of course we had to walk on the beach too.
And then we selected another trail to take us back through the forest.
Someone had fun. When trees fall naturally, the trails have to be cleared, so you see cut ends of logs.
I do love big trees!
I hope you enjoyed the walk!
