I HAVE WRITTEN IN PREVIOUS POSTINGS about the wonderful juniper tonewood in a tenor that I built recently. Today I went on a Rotary Club cruise to Sucia Island in the northern San Juans. Rocky, dry, windswept and incredibly beautiful place. I went searching for Juniperis Maritima, the "Seaside Juniper" endemic to the Salish Sea. I found many specimens, some large and tall, some contorted and tortured growing out of the sandstone bed-rock of the islands. Here are a few photos of a beautiful day and some great junipers. I would never cut one down- but it is refreshing to know that they are thriving in this beautiful place. It is also refreshing to know that I have enough of the wood to make perhaps a dozen more tenors.
