Weathered Wood

Weathered Wood

I really enjoy the warm colors of weathered wood. This was a storage building up at the ranger station at Deer Park in the Olympic National Park at over 5200′ and it’s exposed to some pretty intense weather most of the year.

Boulder Shelter

Boulder Shelter

Boulder Shelter sits in the upper Dungeness valley, at the trail junction between the Constance Pass trail and the Marmot Pass trail. It was rebuilt in the ’90’s by a volunteer group working with the forest service.

Trail Shelters

Camp Handy Shelter
The Shelter and Meadow at Camp Handy

The Upper Dungeness trail in the Olympic Mountains includes a couple of shelters, one at Camp Handy at 3100 feet and Boulder Shelter up the valley at 4900 feet. Back in the early days, the shelters were built so that hikers didn’t have to carry heavy tents. Nowadays, they are maintained and restored in a joint partnership between the Forest Service and private groups. They are recommended for emergency use only … but if you use them, be prepared to share them with the mice, chipmunks and ground squirrels.

Emergency Food — Boulder Shelter

When we investigated the interior of Boulder Shelter, we discovered a cache of emergency food. The age of the cans was unclear … and it really would be a survival decision to open one. I found them vaguely frightening. I moved one of them (the large one on the left) only to have it start making noises that sounded like it had come to life. Maybe close to the truth.

Architecture of B.C.

During a recent visit to British Columbia to visit friends, I took several photos of various buildings. I don’t usually take architectural photos … instead shooting nature, but I liked the way this series showed the variations experienced on my trip.

Piano Player

Piano Player

This is at the ferry dock at Fulford Harbor, Salt Spring Island, B.C. The boy was practicing some chords, but was not an accomplished player. It was still pleasant (and better than I would have been able to remember).

Window with Peeling Paint

Actually, I’m not sure if a window is a window if it is boarded up. One of those deep (or not) philosophical questions that I don’t bother with much.

The peeling paint reminded me of when I had to scrape the family home one summer, getting it ready for painting.

Snowy Bunker

Walking around Fort Worden in Port Townsend in the snow was a treat. Snow is pretty much a rarity in Port Townsend … This is one of the abandoned bunkers that was used to guard the entrance to Admiralty Inlet (Puget Sound).
