An Evening Stroll

An Evening Stroll

This is the abandoned car campground on the Dosewallips River. It makes a great spot to hike to and spend an evening or two while doing some dayhikes. It is also very interesting to watch the natural world reclaim the area. Stinging nettles are plentiful … that’s the majority of the ground cover in the near areas. But it makes a wonderful place to walk after dinner.

This is the Dosewallips River at the first bridge on the West Fork Dosewallips trail. We were dayhiking from the Dosewallips campground and I took this looking up-river from the middle of the bridge. It wasn’t until later that I realized that there is a young woman sunning on a rock on the bank.

The Dosewallips River in early July is running high with snow melt in the high country. With our early hot weather, it is melting out quicker than expected … This image was shot from the Dosewallips Campground. There was a bend in the river that gave me a view up the valley some … I’m not out wading in the cold water.

Looking back down the final hill before camp

The road into the Dosewallips Campground was washed out years ago. It makes a good warm up hike to start off the hiking season, mostly flat and a nice camp … the picnic tables are wonderful when you are out in the woods. I was out last week for a few days and the weather was perfect and the mosquitoes were minimal. A wonderful start to the summer’s hiking.

Same Tree, Different View

Bristlecone View 1
Bristlecone View 2

These two images are of the same Bristlecone Pine, but just from a slightly different spot. I like them both and thought it was interesting how a slight change in shooting angle/location can change an image so much. A reminder of one of the basic rules of photography: Keep your feet moving and work the shot.
