A Walk in the Woods

Our little street ends in a dense eucalyptus forest with several miles of rustic trails, a true gem in the heart of a major city.  Every walk in the forest is a different experience. On foggy days, the wood takes on a magical, mystical quality. Indeed, one trail, that takes you between two large rock outcrops, is known as The Fairy Gates. While the woods host a few birds, largely ravens, as well as raccoons and feral cats, wildlife is often hard to spot in the dense thickets of ground ivy, wild nasturtium, and native brush. But any walk in the woods is generally good for one or two evocative images.
