Along the nature trail at Lake Quinault (just outside of the Olympic National Park), there is a short spur trail running up to this great specimen. They call downed logs with trees growing out of them “nurse logs”, so this must be a nurse stump. Wonderful root system.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 24mm
ISO 1000    1/60th sec    f/4.0
