Off the Beaten Trail

Leaving the Laurel-Snow Trail to climb a hill and step into the forest, I stepped back in time 100 years.

      Thanks very much, my dear friend Inge! Ik heb ook genoten van de verlichting. De zon stond nu hoger dan de kloof en stroomde door de bomen. Wishing you the same! 🤗🌹
