Medicine Bow National Forest, Wyoming
May 31, 2009
This National Forest in southeastern Wyoming is overlooked by many people. The rock formations and mountains in the area are very impressive. A storm was rolling in on this evening.

You are in Juneau Alaska, looking down a paved pathway towards the main campus of the University of Alaska Southeast. The forest on both sides of the pathway is part of a temperate rainforest that extends throughout southeast Alaska. The most common trees in this rainforest are the Western Hemlock and the Sitka Spruce, which are often draped in mosses and lichens. This area, which is at sea level, enjoys a very mild climate, with average temperatures in the 30's in January and in the 60's in June. As a true rainforest, this forest sees either rain or snow about 220 days of the year, for a little more than 5 feet of precipitation annually. Travelers along this pathway should look for wildflowers, keep their ears open for songbirds...and of course, be on the look out for black bears!

This photo was taken last November on a hike up Mt. Finlayson (on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada) which is about a half hour's climb.
I rememeber that the fog both appeared and disappeared quite suddenly.
The shot makes it look like it's the middle of nowhere, but there's a residential area just out of view on the left side of the photo.
when i go to other people's flickrs, i hate looking at nature-y photos, yet i take them all the time. har.
the forest is in williamson, wv and that particular area is nicknamed "castle rock". it's full of cliffs, boulders, and caves and i consider it my haven.
The photograph is from the national park
of "Sant Llorenc del Munt i L'Obac" in Catalonia, Spain.
the ante portas project carries on, now it has enough archives to make for a viewing
mindfist is online, although it's not 100% finished, we doubt it will ever be, so content will be updating all the time (mindfist is a collective of photographers)

-The Forest is at Stockgrove Country Park, in Leighton Buzzard. The forest isn't very big, and backs onto a lake with lots of wildlife. The forest also has a lot of wildlife itself, including a lot of squirrels.
mage Title: Typical Oregon forest
Description/Notes: "In many places on a trip to Mt. Hood one is almost enchanted with the delightfully irresistible calmness and quiet peacefulness of such forest scenes as this."

This was taken during a trip to Puerto Princesa Palawan. After visiting the Underground River, I took a side trip to the Mangrove River Tour before returning to the city proper. It was a worthwhile experience for a minimum cost. Anybody visiting the Underground river should not fail the chance to take that paddle boat ride up and down the river in the middle this hundred years old mangrove forest.I have a brief story of the trip in my pages here : edaltares.multiply.com/photos/album/93/Mangrove_Paddle_Boat_Tour
