Oregon Green

Oregon Fern Gully

I almost forgot how green Oregon is!

Into the Cummins Creek Wilderness

Oregon Rainforest

Lichen Trees

Cummins Creek Trailhead, nice campsite too

I also almost forgot how many logging trucks you have to dodge in Oregon.

    Oregon, my favorite state.

  4. I love how detail-rich your photos are! Even the photos that appear to have no subject are so well arranged, nothing is lost by a lack of “subject.” Beautiful!

    My first pictures of oregon – one of those places I know I am going one of these days – fab pics. It was the salad that made me go ooh – what was in it? I can’t think of any yellow flowers except black-eyes susans.

    • That’s a Wild Garden salad by my plant breeder/ organic farmer/ uncle Frank Morton: three kinds of lettuce – camo deer tongue, greek oak heart & red ball jets, all varieties bred by Frank himself – mixed with some italian parsley, and topped with yellow calendula petals and white radish blossoms. Salad is serious business around here: http://www.wildgardenseed.com/
