2011, Day 181 - Feathered canopy

This afternoon was a typical one in the Pacific northwest, overcast with a light mist but because the rain was so light I decided to take a trip to Forest Park.  My favorite starting point in Cannon Trail, it isn't very long but it is sparsely traveled so it allows for a feeling of solitude.  The damp weather intensified the smell of earth and the sweet aroma of decaying pine needles.

The ferns are so big now I had to take the opportunity to lay under their fronds for a few minutes and just listen to the trees.  There is a kind of peace in a clearing of ferns that you can find nowhere else...
