A hike on Dewdrop Ridge, all off-trail.   Images of snags and trees in a photo essay:

a victim of a grass fire


a burned snag

a bighorn sheep on the ridge


a pine growing in the basalt


a twisted pine


firs on top of the ridge


a fir to climb on top of the ridge


a wind-shaped fir


a wind shaped tree on top of the basalt bluffs


an elegant fir


the low fall sun shining over the single trees on top of the ridge


back through the burn


There are several articles on the website about hiking Dewdrop Ridge for anyone else who wants to enjoy wind-shaped trees and snags.

Doug writes for Kamloops Trails, a not-for-profit (and ad free) website, offering information on trails, waterways, routes, featured spots, viewpoints, and explorations in the outdoors in the Kamloops area (and beyond).

Doug started exploring this area in 1976 and continues to follow tracks and routes wherever they lead, with the aid of map, compass, GPSr and camera. After many dead-ends, but also many discoveries, he chose to share this information.

The Kamloops Trails website has a massive number of interesting posts and would be of interest to anyone in Kamloops who enjoys the outdoors. Visit the Kamloops Trails website at: http://www.kamloopstrails.net/
