Southwest Oregon Rainforest

During a wet April, I was doing stand exams in old plantations in southwest Oregon. No, those days of wearing “tin pants” and “corks” are not over with! On my one day off that wet week, I woke up early on Sunday morning and was out the door before any of my co-workers even got out of bed. I found plenty to shoot, exploring the area around the south fork of the Coquille River, east of Powers.

  1. Thanks, Mike. What is pretty amazing is that the river is running so clean, after days of rain. Ironically, our forest inventory plots were in different-aged clearcuts. Also nearby this scene is the world’s largest Port Orford cedar, looking very much like an older Giant Sequoia.
