Having just emerged from several unplugged and off-the-grid days in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) Wilderness, images from that camping trip are fresh on my mind. Rather than sharing my view of the classic lakes and woods of the famed pristine wilderness, I am bringing you into the forest. The rains have been frequent, and the forest floor is a rich mossy layer of green.
Look closer — kneel down and take the time to really see all the fascinating life the forest floor contains. Come look at the mossy carpet through my eyes and enter what appears to be another world where fairy folk could dance among the varied soft strands of green and gray.

Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where Faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Good Night.
