"Saprophytic mushrooms, the decomposers, steer the course for proliferating biological communities, shaping and forming the first menus in the food web from dead plants, insects, and other animals... building soils is the primary outcome of the activities of these saprophytic fungi, whose filamentous mycelial networks weave through and between the cell walls of plants."
-From Mycelium Running by Paul Stamets

The thing about old growth forests is that pictures never do them justice. How do you capture the magic and size of an 800 year old tree? Also, if the upside down world tries to grab you, do your best to avoid getting punctured by a tree when you’re sucked down. Still not sure how managed to fall backwards and slide off a very sharp hunk of tree.

I loved seeing this barred owl in Mom’s old growth forest. First time we’ve ever actually seen them. Mom said she has heard their hoot. Magnificent creatures. #barredowl #oldgrowthforest #hootowl #michigan

#ForestFriday is also World Rainforest Day! 🌳🌱⠀

Rainforests occupy only 3% of the Earth's land surface but are host to over 50% of known species of flora and fauna. Some of the remaining large tracts of tropical rainforests include the Amazon, the Democratic Republic of Congo Basin and the Southeast Asian rainforests. ⠀

But these areas are being subjected to degradation and forest loss of unprecedented rate making them one of the most vulnerable areas on Earth.⠀

The picture above was taken on one of remaining old-growth forests in the Philippines. This area albeit its remoteness is equally vulnerable to degradation and deforestation if left unprotected. ⠀

The same goes for all other remaining rainforests, hence all the more reason to spread awareness about their current condition and ways to help protect them. Various international and local organisations have been implementing long-term projects and collaborations with countries where the remaining rainforests are found. ⠀

Our everyday actions and choices have effects on the fate of these rainforests. Saving these remaining rainforests takes time, commitment and an enduring heart especially amidst all those seemingly unbearable deforestation threats. ⠀

I'm still hopeful that the generations to come could still visit places such as this and benefit from the wide range of ecosystem services they provide. ⠀

🌲 A Giant Sequoia has shallow roots and when too much water is introduced to it's foundation it can fall over. 💧 You'll see several of these incidents as you explore Sequoia National Park. 😮 It's amazing to see small pools of water form where the base of these trees once stood. 🍃 All while neighboring trees were lucky enough to plant outside of the paths of water. 🌱 The base of this fallen tree is well over 8 feet tall. Shelby and I both could easily wade through this water. 🙌 . . . . .
Pretty sweet, huh? .

Found a gem. Lewis and Clark State Park has one of the last remaining stands of #oldgrowthforest in #washingtonstate We stumbled upon it in our quest for a #campspot for the night and enjoyed sleeping under the magical canopy of trees. #travato #winnebago #magicalforest #travelingwithdogs #dougfir #douglasfir #lewisandclarkstatepark
