Into the Olympic Wilderness

My photo excursion to the Pacific Northwest proved fruitful. This San Diego Photographer greatly appreciated the lush rainforest, rocky beaches, and a general change of scenery from Southern California. The Olympic Coast in Washington State was ideal travel destination. As you can see in the image above, my journey was blessed with blue skies, which rarely occur during the winter months. On this outing, I hiked through an area of relatively small trees blanketed by a thick carpet of monster-sized ferns on the forest floor. Gently babbling streams and soothing winds marked the otherwise soundless landscape. Serene. Stepping into nature, and sometimes out of one’s comfort-zone, is a great way to both explore and self reflect. I found that on this journey I was at peace being part of the landscape. I could not have asked for more! Ago vita vos somnium (live the life you dream) May 24, 2010
