Geo 365: Nov. 23, Day 327: Windswept II

A close-up of the ridge line on the north side of Humbug Mountain. If you look down under the foliage, you can see the trees grow more or less straight up to that level, then simply torque over about 60 degrees or so. I'm sure if you had a well-insulated concrete bunker, with foot-thick bullet-proof glass, sitting out a storm here would be a wonderful experience. I suspect without those amenities, it would likely be one's final experience.

Last spring I had a job on the Oregon coast with a wind/rain storm. I will say that the rain hurt when it hit any bare skin. Hence, I am sure I'd grow away from the wind.
