A Mystical Forest scene in the Columbia River Gorge

Not too far from the beautiful Fairy Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, I found this mystical scene. For the few seconds the sun shone through the trees and cast sparkles of light on the ferns, the downed mossy tree log and the gurgling waters of the brook, all the day to day worries seem to disappear.
