After a climb through a snowy mountain trail the forest opened up and we took a moment to take in the view.
As the sun filters through the landscape a graceful tree with snow laden branches claims a spot in the forest.
I wasn’t exactly real close to this bear who appeared in my yard but we did share some serious eye contact!
Anywhere on the big west coast is where I breathe in and feel the renewal of my soul. I love the trees have claimed their space on this particular sea stack!
This local black bear looks a little concerned because he is experiencing the first snow of the season and now needs to find shelter to hunker down for the winter.
Painted from a photo I took of one of the many very cute tiny cabins on Hollyburn Mountain. Most of the little cabins were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s and are allowed to remain on the mountain as long as they are well maintained.
