    Once again, I love your land scape photos! Really beautiful shots!

    That's really sad about the construction going on... D:

    I like the CP pics too.

    Don't worry the only things green here are the evergreens as well. Most of these pictures were taken last year or even earlier. I did a quick look and it's hard to say how far north I am, possibly a thousand miles?

    I'm amazed that there are sphagnum bogs in your area!

    That's because the photographer is 10-100 times cooler. JK!

    Thank you everyone for commenting and as I said, I will update with fresh pics from a new camera as the season awakens the bogs and rainforest.

    For some of those of us who live here, the pungent smell becomes like perfume of the season, and the sight of this bloom brings reassurance and joy to the thought of the land awakening from a cold and soggy darkness.

    Skunk Cabbage



    Though still a long way off, and out of the focus, Red Huckleberry is gorgeous.



    And Red Elderberry is easily winning the race towards photosynthesis.



    Excepting those that never went to sleep.

    Recently went on a short hike out and about for an archaeological trip. Our flight was canceled, and therefor our entire trip was canceled due to bad weather (which is really saying something around here). So instead we decided to poke around on the road system and see what we could find. I spent more time taking pictures of the spring awakening of plants, here's just a modest few photos:

    An out of focus fruticose lichen.



    The remains of a dilapidated dam built in World War Two era, which supplied electricity for a long since gone internment camp where hundreds of Aleuts were held virtually prisoner (that's a whole nother long story).



    Alligator liverwort and ferns awakening (out of focus! arrg)



    Some interesting lichen. Also out of focus! Darn you cold weather!



    A nice patch of the evergreen deer fern.



    A rather impressive example of some brown foliose lichen.



    A nice patch of forest and a bed of Skunk cabbage, not far from the ex-internment camp.



    Still out of focus! Drat, I really do hate my camera sometimes. A Red huckleberry blossom.



    A great example of a jelly fungus.



    Fiddle-head ferns emerging for the season. This is the best time to harvest them to eat.



    The ubiquitous and treacherous Devil's Club, with growth tip emerging.



    Dilapidated pumphouse from the 60's, complete with roof-top forest.



    An in-focus example of the Alligator liverwort in a bed of leafy liverwort. I really love this stuff!



    A whispy fruticose lichen.



    And last but not least a really interesting dark variety of cup fungus that I am not sure I have seen before.

    Wow! It must be so unpolluted where you live for all of that lichen to grow! Hmmm, so cool! I was wondering why it was so mossy, so I googled 'The First City', and found that you get 137" of rain a year. No wonder all it's so mossy XD
