Forest solitude

Light, shadows, colors, textures, songbirds. I needed this time alone on a forest trail. On the way to and from home, I captured images to share, knowing that many are inside, 24-7.

Light in the forest

It is always a good idea to take a forest walk, but my Sunday adventure was particularly rewarding during this time of trauma associated with the international coronavirus epidemic. I met one other hiker on the way in. We talked briefly with no mention of the virus. On the way to my car I passed […]

Forest blue

Green is definitely the dominant color in any Northwest forest, but a closer look often reveals a splash of a different color. This dragonfly is part of a large population in a wetlands area of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands (AFCL).

Forest canopy

Hike most trails to Little Cranberry Lake and you will have a natural “roof” over your head, but those gaps for sunlight also allow some rain to pass. Dress appropriately for the next few days…

Fork in the forest

Between lousy weather and knee surgery, it’s been a long time since I’ve walked a forest trail. Today I enjoyed an hour on the east side of Little Cranberry Lake, on a trail that ranked high on my Dad’s list of favorites. Dad’s jaunts through island forests dated back to his youth in the Thirties […]

I took this photo from a prone position during a recent walk in the forest. Delicate little things…mushrooms, pale from lack of sunshine.

Forest trail beckons

When I needed a mid-afternoon break, this forest trail at Heart Lake beckoned. The half hour walk was well worth the time. See “Forest flora two” in Activities section for photographs from my brief jaunt through the woods.

Leaves line forest trail

It may be a bit cool and damp, but this is also a great time of year for a walk on Fidalgo Island’s forest trails. Waterproof maps are available in the Park and Recreation Department at City Hall.

Signs of the season

Rather than plopping down in front the television yesterday, I took my daughter up on her offer to hike a forest trail with me. A great decision! We parked the car near the water tower on 29th Street and worked our way up the trail to a point where we could see Little Cranberry Lake […]
