    A hike back to Jawbone Flats

    Opal creek is still giving up things to take pictures of. Hiked back through the "ancient forest" as they call it. Old growth.









    Hope your all having a wonderful day.

    Stunning pictures. They really make me homesick for the Pacific NW where I lived a long time ago.

    Mmmm. Pretty. I've been on short vacations to several parts of Oregon a number of times, and I really love the place. What part of the state is Opal Creek in?

    Great series Roman, I especially like #3!

    PS: We have a Jawbone Flat in CA too, but it is bleak and barren.
