A visit to Rialto Beach‘s famous tree graveyard leaves most people awe struck by the power and majesty of the massive tree skeletons that have washed up on the rocky beach. A graveyard, yes – but also a major earth powerpoint of living energy.
This tree lined beach on the Pacific Coast is a gathering ground for wood, water and air spirits – a community where multiple energies live together. Their combined energies across their different worlds brings their presence very strongly into our human realm of feeling.
Each of the massive roots has their own energy. Many different life forms find their home in each root.
Here is a sweet yet massive tree root just over the rise to the beach, smelling the flowers. To me, she is a beautiful example of the ability of spirit to rise above their circumstances and find beauty in their surroundings.
She lives in a small island of gentle beauty in an otherwise stern and desolate tree skeleton garden.
Here is one of my favorite tree roots, who looks like the energy of Aslan, the royal lion in the Narnia books. He lives in the third root system from the right, in the first photo showing the beach itself.
One of the many small “forts” constructed along Rialto Beach…for play or living in?
People like walking the beach and some have visited often enough to create “forts” (or living quarters?) along the beach – there are a number of these that are both beautiful and awe-inspiring themselves, at the strength of beachcombers to move such large logs and construct their own beach home! This one comes with its own decor and a scrawled address – “Lola’s Fort”
And this is the ocean view Lola and others see most early mornings. The beach is well-known for its continual fog and turbulent waters.
Rialto Beach is located near Forks, Washington and is part of the Olympic National Park system.
