The forests of Seabeck

These images are part of a large collection of pictures taken during one of my projects with the Trees and Humans program at Evergreen, designed and taught by Dr. Nalini Nadkarni.

This project's basic premise was to select a particular tree, spend time with it, learn about it, and report on it.

I chose a 20-foot (ooops... scientists use the metric system... ahem...6.096-meter) Pacific Coastal Rhododendron in the woods behind my house in Seabeck. Incidentally, the Coastal Rhododendron is the Washington State Flower.

This rhodie and I became quite close, and I know she’ll keep an eye on things for me while I’m away. You’ll see pictures of the rhodie in subsequent posts.

For now, enjoy the view that the rhodie enjoys each day! The top image was taken looking southeast from the rhododendron, and the bottom image looking northwest.

Remember you can click on pictures to enlarge them!
