Coos Bay Wagon Road

We headed out on an overcast day with a plan to head over the Coastal Range taking the back roads.

What an amazing day it turned out to be.wagon_road-8823By the time we were up in the mountains, the sky had opened up and was raining pretty steady.

I want to live so densely. lush. and slow in the next few years, that a year becomes ten years, and my past becomes only a page in the book of my life.

  1. Oh, I love those first two especially and I know how hard these places can be to photograph well. We have many of those moss-covered trees around here – one little valley full of them we call “Suess Valley” – the limbs really glow in some light. And that’s a cool quote from someone I don’t know.

    • What a truly delightful first comment! It’s certainly my pleasure to share these images, expecially when they are appreciated. I’ve been trying desperately to try to find bits of time to peruse your blog in between bouts of washing the floor and other mundane tasks that have been put off for way too long. Beware, blogging can lead to a proliferation of dust bunnies and mud patches on the floor! 😉

  2. I’ve just come back from doing the Warrie Circuit at Springbrook National Park near the Gold Coast in Queensland and these pics remind me of the walk! Waterfalls, streams, mossy kingdoms etc. Unfortunately, unlike your great pics, my photos aren’t going to show the beauty of the area. What a lovely walk! 🙂
