Monochrome Madness and a day on Vancouver Island

Writing here on WordPress has given me many gifts, the chief among them is some of the wonderful writers and photographers I’ve had the chance to meet. One of my favorite sites is The Runes of the Gatekeeper’s Daughter — beautiful photography, haunting imagery. I invite you to discover Cybele Moon, aka the Dune Mouse.

MacMillan Forest info:

The Cathedral Grove area of the MacMillan Park rain forest on Vancouver Island is protected by designated paths only.   You walk among giant ferns and the majestic pillars of Fir trees that can grow to nine meters in circumference and 76 meters high.   Named by Botanist David Douglas in the 1800’s they range in age from  300 years to  800 years old.
