concert at the collawash


Deep in the woods on a one-lane forest road, we pulled over to the side, walked across a small bridge, and disappeared into the trees.  We followed the river upstream until we found an open space where we could spread out our blanket and my husband could fish.  The scent of pine needles and distant campfires hung in the air, a light show of glimmering-shimmering sun filtered down through the trees, and a 3-part harmony of bugs, river, and birds settled in our souls.  It was an outdoor concert of our favorite kind ~ super natural.  (The {foraged} food wasn't too bad, either.)
