oregonexplored || Photo from @formososaurus || Cape Meares has over three miles of hiking trails and a mile-long walking trail that winds through old-growth spruce trees, including the uniquely-shaped "Octopus Tree". A short quarter mile hike from a turn-off at the park entrance will bring you to the largest Sitka spruce tree in the state of Oregon. || Image selected by @ericmuhr || 4d

wallawallasweets As we were leaving Cape Meares there was one more thing I wanted to see: the octopus tree. It was 0.1 miles up a trail and the sun was starting to go down. I decided to run up the trail and at the beginning of the trail was an older woman dressed like a camper with hat and green vest holding a cane. She volunteered to go take a picture of the tree for me if I wanted her to but I insisted to go ahead. As I got a little farther up the trail it got darker because of all of the trees and foliage. I hate to admit it but I got a little freaked out; I had no idea who that lady was or what she was doing there and Kent was down in the car. I gave up and turned back. As I was walking past her to the car she gave me this (it was alive) little bouquet she picked along with an agate. She asked if I had a protein bar or anything since she hadn't eaten since the morning. I felt badly that we didn't have any food with us. I may have been uneasy with someone very unfamiliar to me but that was harmless to me. #lesson #discoveringnewplaces #oregon #experiences #pnw #foliage #story #memories #capemeares 6d
