A Peacefull Retreat

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Hidden in a glacial valley, this enchanted woodland, rich in flora and fauna is well off the beaten track and known only to those who are familiar with its secrets. This is a walkers delight, one can trek for miles across rugged open moors and heathland, through densely covered woods and evergreen forests...Following the path of this woodland stream, a geological fault line has created a deep gorge where this pure clear stream plummets vertically into a deep dark pool..The waterfall has the delightful name of Falling Foss..You should go there!

What a lovely place in the forest! I really like the blue sky and the trees reflecting in the water and the rocks covered with moss. Looks very familiar to me. It's a very beautiful picture, Jim! Greetings, Anne

Very intensive the contrast between the blue of the reflecting sky and the green/brown of the surrounding. It is pretty.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on October 15, 2008

I appreciate your visit and encouraging words



The Fylingdales fire exposed some old stones with ancient carvings never seen before.

Their significance is not yet fully understood and I am not certain if the stones have been removed or concealed to prevent their theft.

Thanks for dropping in guys---Jim
