Snow Stacks

Snow Stacks | Leavenworth, WA | March 2019

A late-season snowshoe hike looped through an eerie patch of logged forest. Each tree stump held a “ghost trunk” of hardened snow, a 4-foot-high cylinder that I’m sure told the story of winter’s weather. Yet I couldn’t help but think the stacks encased forest secrets — maybe food caches for Big Foot? Or frozen gnomes?
