Dr Seuss trees

Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak. Oh! The places you’ll go!
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

The people that mind don’t matter, and the people that matter don’t mind.

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.

  1. It’s funny you call them that, too – we have what we’ve come to call “Suess Valley” near here – a spot that’s always wet, with many Big Leaf maples encased in moss. It glows in certain kinds of light, then in the summer, you’d hardly notice it at all. I like the way yours reach out from among the other trees. I’ve read that they’re not entirely sure why Big Leaf maples attract so much moss, but they are by far the species that does this most often, at least in WA, and I’d assume in OR too. There are crazy statistics about the weight of the biomass on these trees.
    I found Elk R. Rd. road on the map – wish it wasn’t so far from here! 😉

    • I think I got it from you… calling them Dr Seuss trees. As for visiting Elk R. Rd… you really should come down our way! It would surely be fun to meet up. The road is about the halfway mark between the current house and the ‘new’ Creek House we’re working on. I’m really looking forward to doing a whole lot more exploring. IMHO that southern stretch of the OR coast is the best!

  2. Bizarre trees for someone who’s lived mostly on the Great Plains. But I’d expect nothing less in a place where it rains all the time (or so I’ve come to believe). And the Seuss quotes are great. I’ve often used the second one and had no idea it was from Seuss.

    • I’m so glad we discovered this particular river road because it feels only lightly touched by civilization and the logging industry.

      Wishing you a marvelous thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. It’s almost overwhelming! Also thankful for your friendship.
