Sitka Spruce Forest


I took this a couple of days ago in the Suislaw National Forest between Lincoln City and Neskowin, Oregon. This 50-year growth followed the 1962 Columbus Day wind storm called the Big Blow that blew down the trees here. The trees from the Big Blow were salvage-logged, and natural seeding took place. This forest had an eerie quality to it with almost no large vegetation on the forest floor and no sounds of birds. What this picture does not show is that this forest was all around us.

  1. Cool-looking place, Tim! Shadow-free practically. Frisbee golf would be a blast in there, I bet. 🙂 Peace and luvz, Keith
