And Now for Something Completely Different…
I’m Also a Nature Guide!
I have a life-long connection to the natural world, and I like to share that connection with others. What’s truly real in this word is not web servers, social media, and smart phones but mountains, rivers, trees, beaches, and prairies.
There is life outside of G4 cell coverage range — literally! Let me introduce you to some of it!
Did You Know…
- 12 of the tree species native to western Washington are the largest in their genus, and of those 12, four are the largest in their families?
- Carnivorous plants are not just tropical and subtropical curiosities — some grow wild here!
- While Seattle was buried under 3,300 feet (one kilometer!) of ice about 17,000 years ago, parts of the eastern Cascade and Olympic ranges escaped glaciation and remained ice-free?
- Western Red Cedar heartwood is so rot-resistant you can still see cedar stumps left over from logging 100 or more years ago?
- Washington State has more active volcanoes than Hawaii?
- Cactus grows wild in parts of western (yes, western) Washington?
The Pacific Northwest is an Amazing Part of the World
