Forest Walk Pastel Landscape 8x10

'Deep Dark Woods' 8x10 pastel
Walking in the woods of Yellowstone very late in the afternoon was a bit unnerving especially since we had just heard about the Grizzly Bear attack that had ocurred the day before. But we wanted to walk to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone from our lodge room and we figured we had enough daylight. What we didn't figure was how dark it was deep in the woods. The only light we had were the beams of the setting sun as they made trails of light across the forest floor. So we sang and chatted and jingled our Bear Bell and we got to the other side of the woods without seeing a bear!

It was worth it. The waterfall was spectacular and we saw an osprey nest in the cliffs with a mom & babies!
