Photograph was taken during a drive around the Scenic Drive of Prince William Forest Park.

Prince William Forest Park is a National Park that is very easily forgotten. Here's the way the National Parks Service describes it "Prince William Forest Park is an oasis of natural beauty and human history located only 35 miles south of Washington, DC. 37 miles of hiking trails and 21 miles of bicycle-accessible roads and trails traverse this 15,000 acre piedmont forest. Beneath its canopy lies evidence of human history reaching back to 8,000 B.C."

I like it becasue it's so close to home and it's alway empty. Therefore I get to check it out at my pace without a bunch of people trying to rush me through.
