Going on a tree hunt

Untitled
We ventured into the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest for a Christmas tree!

Untitled
Within certain parameters — not too close to a body of water, a trailhead, or a campsite, etc. — our permit allowed us to take any tree!

Untitled
Over, under, behind

Untitled
Across…

Untitled
Until this snow-laden evergreen caught our eye

Untitled
Timber!

Untitled
The tree sat in the back with the kids and dripped on them the whole way home!

Untitled
Here’s our little friend all stretched out and decorated

Thanksgiving weekend 2022

Untitled
We found forests in Bellingham for the holiday!

We started Thursday with a chilly loop hike at the Stimpson Family Nature Reserve

DSC_3775
Moss! Ferns! Leaves!

And in the afternoon we descended 51 steep steps…

To hidden Locust Beach

Untitled
On Friday we failed to see the views from the top of Chuckanut Mountain

Untitled
Because it was socked in and pouring

Untitled
But different stairs…

Untitled
Led to more natural treasures, like curvy trees!

Untitled
And dry cliff walls with caves!

Untitled
In a different part of the park we risked the rising tide in another cave (so cool!)

Untitled
And eventually came inside to swim in the warm hotel pool

Untitled
Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Snugglebomb!

Half and half — look at the color of the water on the overcast side versus the blue sky side. Wild!

Hoot ‘n’ Howl

The decorations at Hoot ‘n’ Howl were spectacular!

Untitled
Something for everyone

Untitled
Here Landry was harvesting snowberries from beneath the bush. They make a “pop” when squished

Untitled
Sticks, always a solid choice. And look what the smoke in the air has done to the light! Yucky and pretty
