During the summer of 2017, I made a round-trip in the Northwestern part of the explore the area between the coast and the desert in the states of California, Oregon and Washington.

As a photographer I like to wander around, just by myself.

I rented a Mercedes Benz Metris and started this journey in San Francesco, CA. I then drove the way up along the coast towards the Canadian border until I ended at Mount Baker, WA.

From there I made my way back along Walla Walla and Lake Tahoe, and then back to San Francisco.

Driving around it seemed to me that quite a few of the forests I passed are having a hard time surviving.

Most of the nights I slept in my rental car, which, after some time, became my travel companion, of course with some shortcomings…..
