Shrine to Second Beach, Olympic National Park - 2011
Stopping to catch my breath on the way up the steep trail from Second Beach, I noticed something in the hole of the dark tree to my right. There was almost no light and at first I could barely pick out a shell towards the bottom. As my eyes adjusted I saw a crab claw, some smooth stones from the shore and a few other natural items all laid in place with care. When I saw the glasses it clicked: this was a sort of shrine to Second Beach where travelers laid their findings on the return from their visit. I left nothing, choosing instead to make this image.
