Simply capturing the ambiance and feeling of a beautiful location in the Pacific Northwest tucked in the southern forests of Washington. Turquoise rivers and amazing waterfalls housed within one of the most peaceful forests you’ll ever encounter. A location deserving of visual documentation.
Although this gently rolling creekside ramble is one continuous trail, an adventure in three parts awaits. The first few miles are a quiet walk through a classic fern-dotted, mossy forest. In the second section, hikers find Siouxon Creek and fellow waterfall seekers, and the final miles offer more solitude and small narrow canyons with more waterfalls to enjoy.
The trail to Siouxon Falls, Chinook Falls, and at least three other waterfalls along the way, starts from a subtle trail sign three miles before reaching the main Siouxon Trailhead on FR 5071. Look for a plain trail marker on the left side just after a pull-out on the right after a hairpin right turn. Once you step into the trees, you’ll see the Siouxon Trail No. 130 sign pointing the way to Huffman Peak turnoff (1 mile away) and the main Siouxon trailhead in 3 miles.

Sarah Watkinson is Wytham Woods’ first poet in residence. She leads us through a delicate maze of woodland and words, weaving together nature, research and poetry. In their work, scientists are objective: they don’t express opinions, they don’t talk about themselves. Poetry would seem science’s diametrical opposite: it’s traditionally inward-looking and self-reflective. Sarah’s writing combines her scientific background and her love for form and words in the most delicate and unexpected way: observing the world, for her, is a form of poetry.

Wildlife photographers and filmmakers, have a wonderful opportunity and great responsibility to share stories about wildlife, stories that both celebrate and also raise concern around conservation issues. My tireless efforts to document and protect the few remaining areas of wilderness are fueled by true love for nature and a desire to protect what’s left. As photographers, we have the chance to put into clear focus the beauty and richness of nature which we all have a communal responsibility to protect. But there is always more we can do.
That’s why I have decided to create my own line of handmade products last year, Stay·Wild, to support and help wildlife conservation. 50% of profits is donated to non-profit organizations making a difference every single day.
Together we can make a difference: Save endangered species – Protect their habitats – Help local communities
So please join the herd by purchasing your bracelet and share awareness around you.

‘Breath of the Seasons’ has been my personal project from early 2017 until early 2020.
Living around the Jutland peninsula in Denmark my entire life, what inspired me to make this film was the very difference between winter, spring, summer and autumn in the already diverse Jutlandic landscapes – and the visually beautiful story this has.
To show this cycle in nature through timelapse photography has been a mammoth task and a huge completion for me personally. It has driven me through all spectres emotionally; exhaustion, excitement, despair, joy and everything in between.
The countless hours spent on locations made me see and feel the difference of all four
seasons. It opened my eyes to how similar nature actually is to humans; As nature takes a single breath all four seasons play before our eyes until she’s ready for the next breath and it all starts over again. Energy is everywhere and nothing is at a standstill.

The very smallest bird on Earth is the Bee Hummingbird, which can be found in the Zapata.
A tiny new species of bird-like dinosaur has been discovered, preserved in a lump of 99-million-year-old amber. The tooth-filled skull is only 7.1mm long, suggesting that this ancient creature would have been the size of a hummingbird – far smaller than other dinosaurs known from that time. Unusual features include large, side-facing eyes and a large number of sharp teeth suggesting a predatory lifestyle. The species has been named Oculudentavis khaungraae and is evidence of previously unimagined biodiversity in the Mesozoic era.
Join us as we recount our top 5 animal conservation stories – particularly the case of the northern white rhino.

Significant snow and ice is uncommon here in North Georgia as our recent winters have been much warmer. Here are a few scenes that I have assembled of those rare occasions during the past 2 years at Amicalola Falls and my home.
