Welcome to my online gallery featuring some of the most amazing trees I’ve encountered during my travels. Magnificent wilderness and forest areas containing sequoias, redwoods, aspens, cedars, hemlocks, oaks, ancient bristlecones and more.
Spending time among the largest and most mature trees is very grounding. Looking closely at the details in bark, you can read a story about longevity. Trees give me a true appreciation of time and space. I feel very small and insignificant at times, realizing some of these trees have lived generations.
I may sit in a forest and just do nothing. Forest bathing. Just taking it all in. Sometimes I listen to the wind blowing through them. Watch the leaves drop and gracefully float to the ground. The amazing smells. I’ll never forget the distinct smell of a redwoods forest after a rain storm.
