We spent a few days In Port Ludlow and Sequim last week. That area experienced a tremendous wind storm quite a few years ago,No one could pinpoint exactly, but the storm blew down thousands of trees. What has happened IMHO , is something out of a futuristic movie. Such interesting regrowth ,and bizarre shapes. I am sharing a few pictures. I rode around in the golf cart while hubs payed golf, and everywhere I turned... a new shape. It was so interesting!

    That certainly proves that plants have a tremendous will to survive. And when they didn't, some very cool natural sculpture was the result. Thanks for sharing.

    Those were some mighty mature trees to have gone down like that!

    I am happy you enjoyed them too. It was weird, yet wonderful to see all those trees like that. I had many more pics, but this is a sampling.

    Nice lawns. I wish mine looked so good. Hey Bernice, we are just a hop skip and jump away from each other. Well, a big hop skip and jump. heheh

    Yes,a big hop and skip.. we really need to get more Northwest people on here! I send many email posts of things on here to my friends, but I dont know if any have jumped in yet. I dont know where Toledo is. Do you know where Yakima is? In the middle of WA, desert and agriculture! Soo far from the Oregon coast and ocean. 5 hours.

    We have tree roots showing along some of the roads here. Must have been the same storm. Root balls 15' to 20' across. @Becky H yes we have alot of very large trees around here. The Ho Rain Forest is just a few hours away. Yakima is beautiful too and I love the crop circles made by the irrigation.

    @Kelly...when was the storm? Pictures 5,6, 7-- that root system was huge, I didnt measure it, should have taken a perspective picture with me, at 5'4, to show how big. EErie ,but amazing. pics 15 16 17...awesome. I saw this type of growth In the redwoods many years ago. When one falls I guess others sprout out of the sideways fallen trunk . We go to Bremerton often, Stay at Oyster Bay, take the ferry from Seattle. Love Oyster Bay, stay at the Flagship Inn, and hit the Boatyard for great food and super waterfront eating. Rhododendrons just thrive over there.

    I've been here 20 years, most of the one around our house were already like that. twenty years ago though our development was a pig farm though! I'n amazed and stand in awe of how well nature can survive on her own without human meddling.

    Wow those are amazing photos of amazing trees Bernice. Thanks for sharing. I'm a tree nut so I really appreciate a good funky looking tree. I found this one at Pebble Beach Golf Course on our first trip to Cali back in November of '05.

    We did the drive too. We were out there for our daughter's graduation from language school at Precidio of Monterey or DIL as they call it. And yes, it's quite beautiful there. Great place for photography nuts like myself.
