|Dave and Julia on Fragrance Lake hike.|
The trail up is about two very steep miles, so I made a lot of rest stops on the excuse of having to take pictures. The growth in this Northwest forest is incredibly lush.

Even the lake looks green. The "fragrance" comes from skunk cabbage, which isn't exactly a pleasant fragrance.

To make this quilt related, here's a collaged quilt I made in 2006 called "Forest" that has the colors of our hike. I made the quilt when I lived in Illinois and our house backed up to a forest.
