OK, pictures of large plants and very large rocks taken from our place on Keats Island are in danger of becoming a visual cliché around here. But this is an awfully pretty one.

You can tell what these monster evergreens are — mostly Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, or Hemlock — by looking at the vegetation; neither Lauren nor I have learned this stuff yet, but our 10-year-old did in some fourth-grade Science unit; good for the school system!

Many of these trees are also identifiable by their bark.
