This was a band or bands performing impromptu at Folklife as several others had done as well. They had a small crowd and seemed to be having quite a good time. Nice music.
I believe this man was attempting some sort of ceremonial dance to a alto saxophone being played just off-camera. Oh, and he was incredibly intoxicated.
Beavers frequently build dams here, and this area can sort of flood over as a result during the rainy season. Another vital wetland connected to the river, it is an important part of the ecosystem here.
Lots of alders here.
These streams are home to salmon spawning the autumn
In the winter they flow heavy with the rains, icy cold small whitecaps
In spring they feed the flooding river with melting snow from Whitehorse Mountain
In summer home to sticks, leaves, and animal dung.
It’s been quite some time, but I was finally able to get out and take some photos again. School has had me ridiculously busy, but the days are getting longer and the rain has subsided quite a bit lately, which means I’ll be able to get out a little bit more. This was also my first time using our new D7000, along with our new 17-70 f 2.8 Sigma lens. Hope you enjoy the next few photos. I feel that they represent the back woods around here quite well. Ahhh Cascadia…
