Hiking Captures from the Archives

As with last weeks post, I have been digging through the archives to find captures that I have not done anything with. That being said, we are jumping back to 2013 in North Bend, Washington. North Bend is on the western side of the Cascade Mountain Range just east of Seattle. The town is nestled in a beautiful valley and is home to numerous hiking trails and some pretty intense ones at that.

Todays captures come from two different trails, the first one is called Little Si and is rated low to intermediate.

HIking – Little Si 1

I miss the lushness of the Pacific Northwest woods…….

Hiking Little Si 2

I love the way the sun was shining through the forest canopy on these moss covered boulders.

Hiking – Little Si 3

The next three captures are from the Twin Falls trail. I have shared numerous shots of the falls, but nothing from the trail to get to them.

Hiking – Twin Falls 1

The trail follows the river winding its way to a lookout of the two falls upstream.

Again, the sheer beauty of the forest…..

From my perspective going through these archives brought a welcome respite from being sequestered in our home for the foreseeable future. Hope this finds you and yours healthy!! Be well and hope you enjoyed the hike!!

      Even with the lush vegetation, I was pleasantly surprised with the lack of annoying bugs. I grew up in the Midwest where your lush woods came with mosquitoes and company. And we obviously don’t have anything like that here in Southern California! Stay safe and be well!!

    I love the images and reminders of the amazing lushness of the Northwest forests. Sometimes the earthy smell was invigorating, sometimes it was almost putrid! 🙂 Thanks for sharing Kirt!

    A pure delight to wander in nature with you Kirt. Such simple pleasures now like treasures. I could almost smell the scents of the forest.
    We are doing well, safe at home and sending best wishes to you and your family.

    Lovely! Things are starting to green up here, so maybe I’ll hike out to the wild areas of our property to get a fern fix of my own. Hope you’re staying safe and well!

    Lovely shots Kirt. What a beautiful place. You’ll (we’ll) all be out and about before long, although probably longer than we are hoping for, but it will happen. Stay safe my friend 🙂

      They are all on really well maintained trails…I gave up rambling through the woods on my own years ago….there’s critters I don’t want to run into😀

    Very nice light capture over the big slabs on Little Si trail. I just wish it was open but until then we have great blogs like yours to look through. 😀👍

    The PNW sure is something isn’t it? I think you’re inspiring me to go through old and unused pics of when I lived in Italy several years ago! It’s important to remember and share the beauty that we noticed in those little moments.

    I also very much enjoyed going back through my archives to find photos which otherwise would not be seen by many – all taken before I started my blog. The images brought back happy memories. I guess it doesn’t matter if the images are current as long as they tell a good story! 😊
