I did some hiking through the woods at Smoke Farm with my good friend, Scott Schuldt. Being the Artist in Residence there, his job was to document the area. He was drawn to the 'Mother' stumps, as he called them. I developed a great appreciation for these stumps.
There are currently ten old growth forests in Washington State.
