Return to the "Pocket Rainforest"

As I have noted before, while most people are familiar with the Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula, the state of Washington also boasts a second, much-smaller biome in the form of the Carbon River Rainforest in the northwest corner of Mount Rainier National Park. I've already posted the results of a couple of visits there over the years, but I returned in mid-April for a photo hike that, although cut short by unfavorable bright sunlight, still yielded a number of nice images.




















As I have been doing this year, I vlogged this trip on my YouTube channel. Check it out!



(And, yes, it has taken far too long to get this published. Unfortunately, I was in a traffic accident in late April which, although it left me completely uninjured, spelled the end for my car...when you have a vehicle that's nineteen years old, even a shopping cart running into it in a grocery parking lot would be enough for the insurance company to declare it a write-off. Unfortunately, the process of procuring a replacement took up much of the past few weeks, pushing all matters of photography onto the back burner for a bit.)

2. Oh my dear regnaD kciN!

So sorry to hear about the loss of your car. I am glad you weren't hurt. I hope your life is back on track!

And these photos are wonderful, of course.

The calla lily (?) is amazing. I love all the mossy trees and the sunlight filtering in.

They were definitely worth the wait.

4. Thank you very much...

...and, by the way, the "calla lily" is actually skunk cabbage!

3. While hiking the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier

....a group from Chicago shared a campsite with us. It had rained like hell for four days. We were all looking for our driest clothes.

A big smile came across this guy's face.

"DAMP IS THE NEW DRY" he exclaimed!
