into the woods

I'm  visiting  the  Pacific  Northwest  for  the  holidays.  Most  of  the  trip  has  been  spent  celebrating  with  family  and friends.  In  a  brief  moment of  of  respite  I  took  a  lovely  hike  into  the  woods.  The  area  is  so  verdant.  There  were  ferns  and  moss  climbing  up  nearly  every  tree.   Here  is  one  of  the  resulting  images.  I'm  definitely  looking  forward  to  working  on  some  jewelry  inspired  by  this  outing  and  the  area.
