Old Growth

Kate and I broke our previous record of 49, finishing 62 lynx points today. Now 196 left – another 4 days or so. Today’s transects covered steep north slopes that have never been logged, covered with giant Englemann Spruce (along the streams) and Douglas Fir (higher up). These trees, probably about 200 years old, are 3-5 ft in diameter and probably 100-160 ft tall – the tallest trees I have seen so far. I hope these old giants are not logged out as part of the timber project next year. There are spirits in those trees…

Beautiful weather – freezing in the morning warming quickly to near 70.
