Holocene Park

I couldn’t tell you what a *real*  Jurassic Park might have looked like –can’t travel back in time 100+ million years– but I can tell you that this is an image from the Holocene. This is now.  I’ve been there.  It’s a short walk from my home.

Framed

Overgrown Summer foliage, branches and twigs help provide a natural frame for these waterfalls. Also, something unusual for the Pacific Northwest this year (even in the Summer) spotty illumination by direct sunlight(!)

A Season of Peace

Trees with no leaves but still there is green to be found

Night-time scene from downtown Camas, Washington — my hometown– with Christmas lights all lit up, Friday before last. Note the ‘art-deco’ all blue Christmas tree lights matching the look of the old theater (Click on image for a few more Camas photos)
