Dreaming of Bigfoot

Years ago, back in the mid-1970's, there was a report of a sighting of the Oregon Bigfoot in the hills near where I lived as a child. 

Awhile back, I was watching a program about Bigfoot.  It was said that one of the signs they've been living in an area, are bent over trees, such as you see above.  This is from the beautiful forest of my childhood.

LOL  I think the idea is funny--but on the other hand, wouldn't it be wonderful if this last bit of forested area, complete with old growth trees, is actually home to such a critter?

I like to think about it, that's for sure.  Have a lovely day!

Gnarly Oak in The Abandoned

Here is another of the ancient oaks found in the forests surrounding what once was The Abandoned.  I adore oak trees--They are like dear old Grandpas.  I still hug them when I can.  This picture was taken early last Spring.

With our record rainfall, the moss is growing thick and green on the trees.  The forest is a magical place right now.  though the leaves are gone it is beautiful.

Have a lovely day, sweet Friends!
