Magic Trees

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 8 December 2010 in Plant & Nature.

Well on the way back to Barlow Pass, I came upon these trees made magical by the afternoon light. This completes our excursion to Monte Cristo, an old mining ghost town in the Cascade Range of Washington State, USA.
