We hiked up Saddle Mountain on Sunday and Gales Creek on Monday.
Trying to get into shape for hiking season and figuring out the best way to carry our gear :)

Sunday was cloudy but atmospheric. We didn't get any views from the summit but instead spotted a sun glory (a sort of rainbow around your shadow when looking down into a foggy/cloudy gorge).
Monday was nice and warm. We thought a hike along a creek would be a breeze compared to scrambling up a mountain, but we still got enough elevation gain with the trail going up and down all the time :)

Great set, Tilman, beautifully captured. Some of those images triggered waves of memories; smells, emotions, sensations of dampness as well as some of those darker, eerie aspects of large forests. (I used to live in the eastern Alps. My friends kept raving on how beautiful it all is, but none of them wanted to live there, lol.)
