Views of the Forest: View of a Clearcut
Image of a clearcut in the Olympic National Forest, Washington.  This image links to a more detailed image.Left: Clearcut in the Olympic National Forest, Washington. Photo: Ed Shay On the ridge top I sit cross-legged on the forty inch stump of a Sitka spruce that sprouted around the year A.D. 1600. The sea spreads below me, gentle swells glinting in the setting sun. Two humpback whales spout off Heceta Island, far to the south. Turning, I face the land of clearcuts. In the four centuries it took to grow my sturdy perch, fifteen human generations came and went. 1996. Carstensen, R. Southeast Alaska. In R. Kirk (Ed.), The Enduring Forests. Seattle: The Mountaineers, p. 150.
