The Elliott State Forest

If you’ve experienced the pleasure of walking through

quiet groves of trees--your footsteps cushioned by soft

moss, watching sunlight filter through the branches

casting light and shadow, you know the peace and joy

it brings.   But, add the sound of chainsaws echoing

through the hills, red spray paint on tree trunks

marking timber sale boundaries, orange and black

project notices listing names like Kelly Slim Cougar or

Flying Fish, and the peace and joy slip away.
