Mt. Rainier N.P. - Grove of the Patriarchs

This is short little trail through an ancient grove of trees. Because the trees are on an island amid the Ohanopecosh River they are relatively safe from fire and have survived hundreds of years to grow quite large. A few of those pictures are from either 2002 or 2003 when conditions were sunny and somewhat troublesome for photography. The majority are from September 2004 when a light rain and overcast skies made the conditions a bit more favorable. In general I think forests have much more lively colors with a coating of rain. A few of these photos have a little glare, I don't have a circular polarizer yet for my new Nikkor lens but for the most part they came out OK:
