This past week, my family and I traveled to the Pacific Northwest, for the first time. We packed in a lot over our 5 day stay. On Saturday we hiked along the Rampart Ridge Trail in the Mt. Rainier National Park. Though our view of the peak was blocked by a wall of fog, we had a great time exploring the trail. #mountrainier #mountrainiernationalpark #washington #washingtonstate #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #rampartridgetrail #naturephotography #chicagophotographer #pacificnorthwest #westernhemlock #douglasfir

We just restocked more Gentle Giant Healing Salve. We wildcrafted this salve from local resin collected from Western Hemlock trees in the Cascade Mountains. When wounded, these majestic giants exude pitch in order to protect and heal themselves. The resin from conifer trees has strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties and works wonders for healing small cuts, scrapes, burns, and chapped skin. This is great to have in your purse or somewhere close at-hand for boo boos.

Plus it smells amazing!

In case you were interested in a follow-up on the larger totem pole I carved a while back, here is the finished product.
The carving is of Manchurian elm, while the base is from a piece of Western hemlock that I found in the woods on BC's West Coast. The red paint is hematite mixed with linseed oil, while the black paint is bone char mixed with the same. I chickened out with the finish and decided to go with boiled linseed oil, the varnish with which I'm most comfortable.
Unfortunately, this piece is now sold. There will be more in the future, though, so keep your eyes peeled!

Do you have a tree removal project that we can help you with? Seattle Tree Care Arborists can obtain the necessary permits, remove & haul away the tree, as well as grind out the stump ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘ #teamwork #treepermit #seattletree #seattle #exceptionaltree #westernhemlock #arblife #seattlearborist #seattletreecare #hazardtree #arborist #timber #loveyourtrees #rot #internaldecay #largewoodydebris #timber #getoutside #pnw #pnwonderland #forest #forestry #sustainableharvesting

Maybe obsessed with this #tree. Think itโ€™s a #WesternHemlock. #Raindrops #Nature #Bellefonte #PA๐ŸŒฒ @joeshmoe5409 #Hops

There are many things I love about hiking, one of the thrills I never tire of is the feeling once we walk through the forest edge and see the โ€œrealโ€ forest under the canopy. This hike was through a forest of #westernhemlock and #westernredcedar on a thick carpet of moss. Almost religious! The forest, a small lake iced over and an alpine moraine disappearing into the fog with just enough blue on the edges to let us know that there was blue sky, just out of reach. Another great hike, great company and wide ranging and fun conversations. #getoutside #northernbc #hikingbc #northernrainforest #alpineviews

I miss being amongst towering trees... Western hemlocks and Douglas firs in Mt Rainier National Park, WA, August 2018 โ€ข This weekend Iโ€™ll be going to coastal Virginia with other members of the bird club here at VT for the annual Rarity Roundup. Hoping for plenty of winter time goodies, and hopefully some decent photographs too. #forest #pacificnorthwest #douglasfir #westernhemlock #mtrainiernationalpark #washingtonstate #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #1frame4nature #youngnaturephotographers

Hard at work clearing Western Hemlock from our local woodland.
