Glowing Green Leaves at Beverly Beach State Park! (+6 insets)

(+6 insets)

Canopy of Green
When reading about popular campgrounds in Oregon, Beverly Beach was one that came up a lot. People jumping up and down about how beautiful it was. It's one of those places that, if you don't sit on the reservation window when the sites become available, you won't get to stay there. We were really happy when we got a full two-weeks reservation because it's true, Beverly Beach is GORGEOUS! I couldn't believe the greenery everywhere, it was like a rainforest!

Today's Picture
Right next to the prehistoric-looking bog that I shared in my last post, my attention was drawn to this lovely tree with large leaves. The leaves were so pretty that I spent a while just staring, moving my position and looking again to appreciate the glowing leaves and beautiful textures of the veining. This image will give you an idea of what I was looking at! (I don't know what kind of tree this is…do you know?)

Today's Insets
Inset #1 &#2: Each morning I watched the trail carefully because quite often there would be a Rough-Skinned Newt making its rounds. They didn't move very fast and blended in with the trail so I watched for any movement as I walked along. Here was one of the little cutie-pies I happened upon, along with a close-up so you can see its face better.

Inset #3: As you can imagine, such a lush and moist forest was a perfect environment for fungi and they were all over the place! Steve discovered this moss-covered trunk that was covered with an entire village of little mushrooms! Aren't they grand!

Inset #4: One of the unusual features of this park was the great number of trees with these fabulous roots! They formed such large cage-like areas that I would often find clusters of children playing inside, giggling when I spotted them!

Inset #5: The deep shore of Beverly Beach seemed to go on and on at low tide. On this grey and stormy day, I thought it was interesting how the receding waves seemed to entice me to follow them out to the ocean. Yikes!

Inset #6: This is very close to the end of Spencer Creek, where it empties out into the Pacific Ocean at Beverly Beach. I loved looking at the waving grass under the clear water but this image, though pretty, cannot capture the mesmerizing sight.

Thank You For Stopping By!
I appreciate your visits, comments and stars more than you know. I fight with my feelings of guilt for not returning the favor and am still dealing with issues regarding anxiety but I'm getting more days that are better. It's a slow road. Today is the first day of February and spring is fast-approaching! I hope you all have a super week with signs of new growth and maybe even a crocus or two!

Oh what gorgeous photos, as usual. Although PIP *6 isn't there, as I was looking forward to seeing the waving grass underneath the water. The picture of those gorgeous little mushrooms is just incredible. You are quite right to call that a little "village", because they do look like a collection. The pic of the sea - wonderful - and I'm glad you didn't get too persuaded to venture nearer the water.

It's great that you are getting so many photos on show for us to wallow in, wishing we were there too. Keep safe sweetie.

I love those salamanders, Janet. I gave a try at identifying the leaves. My best guess is they are saucer magnolia (Magnolia x soulangiana), which is not native to North America, and is, in fact, a hybrid.

The leaf texture is very well phtographed Janet. I like the veins of the leaves too.
