Nature is the best getaway...

The mysterious woods... makes one want to leave the city almost.

It looks stormier than it was... it was actually just foggy and warm. But the drama looks good.

The deep, dark, foggy woods... what better place to get away to?

But the sunshine did peek out on occasion... opening windows to marvels of Nature.

I think movie makers use fog for effects... it's easy to see why.

Roots, trees, people... they all intertwine.

A mist enshrouded shore echoes the shapes of the forest.

A staircase hewn out of rock and cedar. It all felt like it was straight out of Tolkein...

As the elusive islands drift in and out of the fog...

Camping is my kind of getaway. And not a bug in sight the entire trip too!

Thanks... but I think Mother Nature gets most of the credit.

John,
Love your photos. I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. It's one of my favorite places. Wish I could vacation there every year. Maybe someday....ahhhh, well I can wish away! Janet

What a great area to have as a getaway..! Some of those look like straight out of an American horror movie, but also very relaxing at the same time! Maybe that's the secret...?

Oh my goodness, John!! These are amazing!! So why aren't you doing this full time?? But then again, the kid's book world would miss you too much. But seriously, you have an amazing eye and gift for photography!!

John, I haven't read your blog in a while, but I really needed a vacation. Beautiful photos - I especially like the island rising out of the fog. I hope I get to the pacific northwest sometime, but I don't know if I'd be able to find the beauty you've captured here...

Gosh how spooky those tall trees are! We don't grow 'em that height over here on the shoreline of New England! Beautiful photos, you are a gifted photographer.
