When I walk through old-growth forest, it often times leaves me thinking about the story “The Hobbit”, by J.R.R. Tolkien; the atmosphere is one in the same. The pure age and beauty of the trees themselves, take on a mystical feature that more times than not, lead to a magical experience when hiking through them. A recent trip through one of SW Washington’s old-growth forests was no exception. The beautiful waterfalls that line the creek which flows within the forest, are truly magical in their own right. I always look forward to spending some time trying to capture the feel that these magical places exude.
