Catching the Forest Sun

I've taken photos of this scene before, but this secluded back way around Grizzly Peak always seems to draw my interest.  Maybe it's the sense of calm amidst a wild whitewater rafting environment.  Maybe it's the classic look of the park service truck.  Maybe it's the way the trees part just so to reveal a scene of activity at Grizzly River Run beyond.  But I always feel calm, collected, and cheerful whenever I pass through here.  That rustic feel brings me back to my childhood days, when the great outdoors was a great wonder and mystery, and every turn of the trail brought forth more adventure.  Ah, to have the excitable spirit of childhood!

The Park Service truck sits restfully at the back of the Grizzly River Run loading area.
