We were recently visiting the most beautiful place in the Northwest... Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The damp forest was filled with bird song, and the moss grew thickly & greenly underfoot and on the trees. The picture doesn't capture the lovely piney yet earthy smell as we walked on the spongy duff beneath our feet.

This is the road I wish I was on now. I can almost just see around the bend...

Whatever road we are on we can never really see around the bend but sometimes it seems clearer than others.
I loved the picture

Beautiful photo. I can very much picture everything you tell about, the sounds and the smell and all.

Sometimes the fun is not knowing what's around the corner.

Duff on duff?

IOU a letter.

Your commentary along with this photo made me want to be there on that road right now. I can almost smell that piney earthy smell you described.

Heeheehee, I was gonna mention the "Duff on duff" thing to, hahahaha. I have a small patch of woods near my house with pine trees. When I walk thru there I smell that lovely piney smell too. Very refreshing, pleasant, rejuvenating. and the trees are are good spirits to commune with. :-)

I wish I was there too! It looks so inviting, I can see why you wish you were there.

Compared to where I live, it looks really lush and green. Upstate New York, where most of my relatives live, looks like a jungle by compare to my home.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! And I'm looking forward to seeing the San Juans as I will be moving to the Seattle area (probably) next year :)

I got to spend the entire summer of 2007 in Friday Harbor and I still long to return. OC teaches a summer course at the Friday Harbor Labs (UW)every other year.
