    Trapper Creek Wilderness in southwestern Washington. As far as I know, only the Salmon River Trail near Mt. Hood rivals these trees.

    The gallery for the story on these:


    Western Red Cedar, twelve feet in diameter
    NIKON D2X    ---    31mm    f/11.0    1/1s    ISO 100

    Douglas Fir eight to nine feet in diameter, with yours truly posing with it
    NIKON D2X    ---    29mm    f/16.0    2s    ISO 100

    Pretty little view along the trail at 12mm
    NIKON D2X    ---    12mm    f/16.0    1/2s    ISO 100

    Another very large Western Red Cedar
    NIKON D2X    ---    18mm    f/16.0    3s    ISO 100

    Soda Lake, 2,500 feet above, and 3 miles from the trailhead
    NIKON D2X    ---    12mm    f/16.0    1/15s    ISO 100

    Soda Peak, at about 4,500 feet, rising above Soda Lake
    NIKON D2X    ---    25mm    f/11.0    1/30s    ISO 100

    Love the pictures Frank, and thanks for taking us on the hike the lazy way. You look like you are about to launch a war somewhere - that gear must have weighed a ton (or at least felt like it).
  3. Beautiful country Frank. I'm surprised you didn't show us the Sitka Spruce that is near there as well. It is huge, not that the ones you have shown are not.

    No Sitka Spruce nearby

    Hi, greyflash.

    No, there wouldn't be any Sitka Spruce nearby. They only grow near the Pacific Ocean in the forest lowlands, no more than about 15 miles inland. I was 120 miles from the coast.
