The chilled air is moist in the deep dark forest. The trail is lengthy and all you see are trees, but then you start to hear a sound…. You stop walking to hear it louder. Is that a trickle? You start walking again except your steps are quicker, happier. Then you discover it! A forest gem, a waterfall deep in the dark woods.
I LOVE WHEN THIS HAPPENS!!!
Shhhhhh…sorry! I’m shouting! Be quiet because there’s a chorus of birdsong which echos on the cavern walls. Oh the beautiful sounds of bird chorus and a waterfall melody!!
This was the scene a few months ago at Matthiessen State Park. It took me this long to paint from my picture. It has been a busy summer.
I hope you find a gem on your hike as well!
Happy Hiking and Sketching!!!
