We weren't sure where the 'cathedral' was, I thought it would be a clearing of some sort, maybe we missed it but I think it's just the whole area of ferns. It's a very nice place overall, but honestly not that much to it, a...More

We had one of those beautiful days in autumn to do this . A little damp underfoot and muddy but just lovely to see. The greenery is ever changing and the big tree that was struck by lightening is still very impressive. Do yourself a...More
