As you step through the invisible boundary into the Enchanted Lands, a beautiful stonework rotunda rises up with the pines and firs toward the glow of sunlight, bathing the pillars in liquid gold. The clearing is round, set amongst the overgrown greenery of ferns, grasses and leafy trees.
Limestone stairs encircle the pillars, allowing approach to the center from all sides though, the archway that faces the long-since tangled path gives the impression of a doorway. It would take some real bushwhacking to approach the enclosure from any other direction where the woods merely stretch onward into thick pacific-northwest forestry.
Different than last time….
