Spring Sky Through The Alder Trees Of Puget Gulch In North Tacoma

Puget Sound was formed by glaciers many thousands of years ago.  The ice left a deep cleft in the land just west of the Cascade Range which filled with water nearly 100 fathoms deep in places, and surrounding the water are high bluffs of glacial till rising more than 300 feet.  All of the Pacific Coast west of the Cascade Range is wet, and around the Sound the water cut deep gullies down to the shore.  The gullies are filled with fern, salal, nettle, maple, alder, and much more. Deer swim across the bay from Vashon Island and use the gulch to climb the slope. In the Spring these trees shoot out buds and flowers against the sky. Looking up through the early canopy gives you filigreed silhouettes a hundred feet above you, a compelling sight, reminding of renewal and good times to come.
