Western Red Cedar

Came across this Western Red Cedar while in the Olympic National Park just a few days ago. It had fallen of natural cause across the Hoh River Trail ( about 4 miles from trailhead ) in the Hoh Rainforest and park rangers had cut out the section that had blocked the trail. By the red color of the cross section, fresh cedar smell, and sawdust that had not begun to decompose in the annual average rainfall of 160 inches, my guess is this tree had come down in past week or so. It appeared  someone had took on task of counting rings and had scrawled 1776 in pencil about 3 feet from center… hard to say, but tree was easily 7 and a half feet in diameter.

Exquisite studio prop.

A family friend from the high school years on the south shore of Lake Superior just sent me this beautiful Coues Whitetail Deer Skull. Sailor (as is known) came across the fresh carrion of this doe, that was taken down by a mountain lion, while inspecting his property last fall  after the Monument Fire in Southern Arizona. Sailor’s property is located between Nogales and Bisbee three miles north of the border where the Sierra Madre Occidental spills into the Arizona dessert. He kept an eye on the carrion over the winter as it was ravaged and scattered by coyotes, crows and other dessert creatures under the blazing sun. This spring the skull was untouched, stripped, and perfectly bleached by the sun.
