Ancient Spruce stump supports large new tree with its roots high in the air in this Oregon Coastal Rainforest environment

The coastal rainforest creates Life upon old LIfe; here a large spruce with its base six feet in the air!.....Also, check out the spruce near Seaside, which is Oregon's Largest Tree!

waters merge and fold sand and greenness into an illusion of some other planet, maybe Mars

All perspective is lost, are we on Mars here? The Coast can twist the viewer's mind into these kinds of optical illusions; such new vision is one of the joys of a trip to the Coast. (and, surprise! the background image on this page is in fact taken by the Mars Orbiter, or the sandy surface of Mars!).
