Enchanted Forest by rocamiadesign Enchanted Forest by rocamiadesign
This is my entry for the Summer Contest being hosted by :iconice-11:.

What summer means to me is escaping civilization, after being cooped up and snowed in for months, and camping out as long as possible (usually until more snow forces us back indoors). If I wasn't able to spend some of my summer in the woods, I think I'd go crazy. I need the complete quiet of nature to recharge my batteries and make me more pleasant to be around.

This was taken in the Great Bear Wilderness in Northwestern Montana.

I'm entering this in the Linking the Seasons contest, hosted by the Nature Photography and DALinkSystem groups.

FULL VIEW PLEASE! There are details in this that cannot be seen in the preview image. Thanks for looking! :hug:

It is peaceful, a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. You can almost imagine that you've stepped back in time there.
