More Pacific Northwestern Fairy Tale Inspiration

For our 4th of July morning activity, my family and I hiked on one of our nature trails in the middle of a Pacific Northwestern forest. I've taken a two-month break from my contemporary bedtime tale manuscript, so I grabbed my camera and took more woodsy photos to give me fresh inspiration for diving back into my Oregon story.

I'm not yet saying much about the plot, but I will reveal that water is involved.
I love this shot because you can't quite tell what's beneath the creek's surface.

Our woods swallow up everything in the
summer, which is perfect for a dark tale.

Trees shrouded in mossnot just for Southern Gothic fiction.
