A short but slippery hike in to Little Qualicum Falls. Beautiful green shades contrasted against the snow make you feel like you are in a fantasy world of nature. It is extremely quiet today until we turn a corner and start to hear the falls.
A slight mist in the air helps create a vibrant scene of water cascading down a rocky gorge. Truly an elemental nature experience. A person could be mesmerized for hours staring at all this lovely water.
The closer you look the better it gets. You can really feel the spirit of the deep forest waterfall. It is a special healing experience hiking into this gem of nature. Nature is the mirror image of spiritual reality.
We really enjoyed this short deep forest walk to the Falls. There are longer walks you can take if you wish. This park is very easy to access and the parking is great. I recommend it to anyone who loves nature. Please check the link below for more information on the park.
A walk in the forest has inspired a few deep forest fractals. I love the elements and textures of a well-evolved old growth forest.
Deep Forest Fractals cedar stumps
There are lots of old red cedar stumps in the forest that are perfect for nature mandalas. Many old trees that have been cut down are kept alive by other trees in the area. Their roots are nurtured and provided with nutrients by other plant roots for still unknown purposes.
Moss mandalas and Deep Forest Fractals
Deep forest moss is everywhere in the forest especially during the moist winter months in the Pacific Northwest Canada. Their soft and intricate textures make a lovely mandala as above.
Take the time to walk in your special nature paradise especially when you feel your energy is low and you need to recharge. Equally important, being in the deep forest helps me to focus on what is important in my life. The modern world contains too many distractions. These distractions can complicate your life and can cause depression. When we walk in the deep forest we are returning to a default world full of fresh air and good nature vibes! Consequently – how can you not feel better for it! 🙂
Otherworldly, but oh so cool is the Ghost pipe plant (Monotropa uniflora). Also known as Pipe or Corpse plant these flowers were in the deep forest on a slope by a stream. I have only seen this species of plant one other time in my lifetime. That was on Cypress mountain in 2008 during a field trip. Tim Burton comes to mind as well as Dr. Suess 🙂
Elemental forest deep dream neural net image . Look carefully as you walk in the forest and you may see Elementals. They are everywhere. Sometimes we can’t see what’s right in front of us. Walking in the deep forest is an example of this. We only see what is meant to be seen but if we sit quietly for a time then forest creatures will appear out of their hiding places.
This deep dream fractal image that was made using deep dream app. This is an AI program which makes it interesting and always creates art that is very unique.
Try and be creative yourself today and feel better for it.
