Spent the last several days living in and hiking among the magical hills just west of Jacksonville, Oregon. Being a world-class tree hugger, I find myself seriously drawn to the arboreal expressions of this unique ecosystem. As you can see, the Madrone trees posed a major seduction to both eye and camera. As it is with loved ones, I try not to think in terms of favorites when it comes to nature’s bountiful expression… but let it be said that within my own physiology, these trees exert some real influence over the endocrine processes related to some powerful emotions; namely wonder and awe.
