Everything Is Turning Up Fall In The Rainforest

 

Wherever you are this fall, the basic playground is the same. In the northern hemisphere fall, that is. A big leaf maple forest is no exception.

If you wander into the deep woods, the ones that drip and creek, home to the slippery and slimy, you can still find the autumn basics. Azul skies, thin air, clouds of fluff, crunchy underfoot, colour and decay surrounds. But because you are in a coastal rainforest everything is big. Very big. 13 inch maple leaves don their firefighter yellow suits and flutter to the ground below. Giant ferns parade you down leaf strewn paths, past lumbering cedars and billowing birches. The fall air has a particular pungency in the rainforest and after your walk you will breathe easier, having left your cares to the limbs and boughs that envelop the rainforest, where the cycle of life is always dynamic.

    Your pictures of your Rainforest Walk are just spectacular! Keep up the stunning work. Just returned from a visit to Vancouver Island and found the trees and shrubs just beautiful. Hope all is well with you and family. M/

      I have been near Nanaimo for the past week. Saw salmon run, river otters, eagles and much more. It was refreshing to see fall still around somewhere after our September “winter”.
