Frosty Snowy Branches

Frosty Snowy Branches

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 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.
