Dark Forest (Cloquet Island Scenic Overlook)


I took this photo at the Cloquet Islands Scenic Overlook park in Dayton. If you follow a somewhat rocky path down to the river, you can find a beautiful floodplain forest. Other times I have been here this whole area has been flooded, but it was much lower this time, so I walked along the mud for awhile. I tried to make sure this photo captured how it felt then; dark and damp, with the setting sun lighting up the trees ahead.
