Krumholz—blasted by the wind


On one of my favorite island walks today I saw many examples of wind sculpted trees.

Roaring down the Straits of Juan de Fuca and across Puget Sound, the wind gains momentum and power and the trees grow with their branches away from the wind for protection. All living things respond to the forces of nature.

What is an example of how you responded to nature today?

When we look at Mt. St. Helens, we see the mountain and remember the 1980 explosion.

But do we think about how incredibly remarkable it is that the forests have returned?

Nature is ever and always resilient.
