Beautiful Forest Scene

This is a photo from a visit this past Sunday to Watershed Park. Watershed park is in Olympia, Washington. Up until the 1950s the area served as the City water supply. When the city converted to a different water source, there was an attempt to log the area. A group of concerned and dedicated citizens formed to save the area, and now, thanks to their efforts, the area exists as a monument to civic engagement, and a monument to natural beauty.

This Watershed Park is home to what must be one of the most beautiful urban old growth forests.
