Back to Nature at Yost Park

This adventure took us to Edmonds, Washington, and Yost Park. A park I had never visited, despite its a few miles from my home. This area in Washington was logged in the early 1900’s, and large evergreen logs were processed into shingles and lumber in mills along the Edmonds waterfront. Dozens of large old Cedar stumps, known as “Mother Stumps,” thrive throughout the Park. “Nurse logs “ are fallen logs that are laying on the ground. As stumps and logs decay, their nutrients replenish the soil, and encourage smaller plants to grow around them. I added a slideshow below.

A few more photos from the park, showcasing the park’s beauty.
