This is a re-work of a photo I took last August on our trip through the Olympic Peninsula. McLane Creek is a nature preserve some miles outside where we stayed in the area of Olympia, Washington. The trail takes you through rain forest with moss-covered trees, along muddy paths, and onto boardwalks to keep you safe and the plants safe. Here, there is a viewing platform which looks across this pond into the neighboring mountains. We came here as there are beavers rumored to building ponds – sadly, we did not see any – but the beauty of the trail made up for that! My problem with this photo is there is soooooo much green!
