This was along the Highway outside of Haines, Alaska. There had been just a dusting of snow, then it cleared off and some heavy frost locked the snow in place. This is along the river valley, so these are poplars, alders and such. The river meanders across the valley, favoring quick growing varieties of tree. No 400 year old cedars growing along there.
This is a shot I took while taking the Alaska Marine Highway ferry up to Haines, Alaska. I know it is along the coast of Vancouver Island, but that’s it. I really wish I had taken note of the location at the time. Sigh.
It was a nice spot, though.
This old truck isn’t dead, just sleeping. It’s a long nap. But it’s been a tough life being a truck up in an Alaskan sea town. Naps are well deserved.
This shot was taken on Lake Quinault … in the rain forest, from a canoe.
It’s pretty rare that you get a clear day in the middle of winter in the Olympic rain forests. even rarer when you get one without wind. We paddled to the other side of the lake and had to head back because it was getting dark. But not before we saw a couple of snow geese.
Not a lot to say about this, except that this is a great friend of mine and we were in the Death Valley area and saw this old wrecked truck. We both like taking photos of things that are old and falling apart. Maybe it’s that we can identify!
