Re: Cool stuff.

Thanks! I love looking at these tree rings; make me feel so insignificant...

Your pictures posted within the past week are wonderful! You sure have been busy!

Re: Cool stuff.

I was just at Ohannie a weekend ago. Our family has a "mini" family reunion there over the 4th almost every year. This year was rainy and cold and if I might say, miserable.

My wife stuck it out for five days while I spent several of those trying to get Glacier Peak which had even worse weather. Ohanepecosh is one of the best campgrounds I've ever been to (40 years of going there)

Re: Cool stuff.

Sorry to hear about the poor weather! We're getting so badly needed rain here after horrible heat but I do know how rain and cold can affect a trip!

Re: terrific

Glad you like it as much as I did. Since the trees are so huge there this is a wonderful way to convey their age. Thanks for looking!
