Winter is the time for comfort,
for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand
and for a talk beside the fire;
it is the time for a home.

A Black-tailed Deer Buck feeding on lichens in Olympic NP. Winter snows had brought a tree down in the Elwha Valley where many deer winter. Olympic is our backyard and all the photos we shoot on the Olympic Peninsula we give to the park to use in their publications. The park is a great place to photograph any time of the year.

In this conclusion to our series on dam removals, we travel from the Klamath up to the Olympic peninsula, to the site of one of the most ambitious dam removal projects yet completed: the former Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. What did it actually take to bring the dams down, and what lessons can we take forward to other large-scale ecosystem renewal projects?⁣

Can’t believe this is the only photo I took this weekend, but had my first sport climb experience! Learned a TON, had to leave some gear because I suck, and had about a 15 foot fall! But hey bumped and bruised I had an amazing weekend! Two climbing locations in one day!  #sportclimbing #tylerpeak #elwhariver #pnw #portangeles #dungenessriver

The beauty of mid-autumn on the Elwha River was breathtaking this afternoon! #elwhariver #autumn #river #pnw #pnwonderland #weekendadventures #washingtonexplored
A weekend away with this guy! Not a bad way to celebrate turning 40. 😜 (My parents were 40 when I got married! Wow! That kind of makes me feel oldish.)

More of the hike at the Elwha today.  I know that this sounds crazy but I rather enjoyed a hike in the rain!  We brought the babies but I have no pics on my phone of them... Let's just say that they weren't as much of a fan of the wet conditions. -

I love my "Plants are the best medicine" shirt.  It's true whether you're eating them or wandering through them in the woods.  My "before" hike pic (dry) and my after hike pic... It was a wet, wet day in the Elwha Valley. -

I’m embarrassed to admit that this was my first outdoor climb sess of the season, way way way to late in the game but woah. couldn’t have asked for a cooler spot to jump back on the ropes and climb some routes right outside the Olympics. with the elwha river right below and our campsite a mile away, the place was enchanting. the itch to climb is definitely back.

Hubs and I played at the old campground at the Elwha today.  Wow, had it changed!  I looked at him and said, "How lucky are we that this is our Monday morning!?" So much gratitude to have a bit of freedom to experience the world at home.  It was gorgeous and we are blessed!

Next time we might even make it to the trailhead!? Lol -

Or walk along the Elwha was beautiful. This time of year is the best for color and no allergies or 🐝 🐝!! I saw some spider webs but thankfully no spiders! -

I have lived here ALL my life and camped at the campground on the Elwha many, many times but somehow never made it to Madison Falls.  How is this even possible!?!? It's like .1 miles of a #hike ...sheesh. -

A sketch of a Chinook Salmon and the effects the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon Dam have had on the Elwha River since 2012. The removal of the Elwha Dam was the world's largest. Many we're skeptical of the impact the removal would have. Others thought it may be a step back, after all, hydroelectricity is a renewable, (and considered by some) a clean energy source. But the dam generated a very small amount of energy (that could easily be replaced with a few wind turbines.) Sustainability is usually multifaceted and goes beyond simply maximizing efficiency. There are many considerations, particularly the long game which requires a holistic approach. After all, life doesn't happen in a vacuum. So, removal of the dam may have started with the salmon 🐟 but think of all the species that sustain themselves on salmon 🐻 🦅 🐋, and then the species that sustain themselves on those and so on... It's a rather extensive ripple effect that includes both flora and fauna. I'm going to refine and digitize this piece and will share some of the progress since the removal of the dam along with progress on the art. Spoiler alert, it's recovered more quickly than expected. #DamNation #elwhariver #biodiversity #illustration #pnw #drawn #art #pnwartist #chinook #salmon #freethesnake #47parallel #sketch #fish #blackandwhite #micron #drawing #sketchbook

Well, with fall steelhead season underway I have not had much time to post. Here is a female #chinooksalmon being courted by a male in the #elwhariver from a few weeks back. I want to refocus on the declining size of chinook because there were some very in-depth comments in the last post on #kingsalmon and as with any post, I have to strike a balance between detail and simplicity.  So, I decided to delineate the factors and focus on one per day. Before that however, let’s try to clarify what is happening, over what time and where. First, many populations of Chinook salmon are showing patterns of declining size and age.  Both are intertwined.  For example, older fish spend a longer time at sea, and thus, are typically larger than younger ones.  Second, based on historic photographs and catch records, there were clearly some very large Chinook salmon when Europeans first arrived in the PNW.  However, we didn’t start collecting detailed data on size and age of chinook salmon across lots of populations until the late-70s and early-80s. That’s key, because it means that declines in Chinook have occurred over the period of record for which data is available.  It is therefore possible, if not entirely likely, that intensive cannery fisheries – which were nearly ubiquitous along the coast – had already influenced size and age of Chinook.  Third, hatchery chinook in the Columbia tend to return at smaller sizes and younger ages than wild fish, which means that we need to think about hatcheries also. And, there is suggestive evidence that large releases of hatchery pink and chum salmon could be influencing growth of chinook. Lastly, ocean conditions are changing with climate effects and in turn, is shaping timing, duration and intensity of plankton blooms that serve as the food source for many salmonids when they are young.  And, serve as the food sources for smaller fish that larger salmon eat as they grow in size.  Basically, there are a number of factors that are likely contributing to the problem. Over the next few posts I’ll try to review each of the factors and explain their relative.  Have a great weekend. #fishing #fish #conservation

#tbt to my time working with WA Dept. of Ecology.
.
.
This day is I was doing salmon surveys on the Elwha River. .
.
I loved this job because I spent everyday outside, and I got to work daily with awesome organizations, like the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, NOAA, and the National Park Service. .
.
Also, it was a cool because this job paid me to care for God’s creation—honoring him through restoration efforts. .

If you’re into rocks, this may please you deeply. If you’re not, scroll on, scroll on. Another amazing Elwha rock, this from the drained lake bed. It was hard to leave this conglomerate behind. It reminds me of a middle eastern carpet or Klimt painting. But with 50 conservationists surrounding you, you snap a picture and move on. #rocks #redsandstone #conglomerate #olympicpeninsula #elwha #elwhariver #river #upperleftusa #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pacificocean #basalt #klimt #getoutside #rockhound #hiking
