Date of photo: May 14, 2018

I took this shot from my campsite at Graves Creek Campground in Olympic National Park. The big leaf maples were starting to leaf out, but it was still early enough that they let a lot of light through. The undergrowth of ferns is pretty amazing. They get covered with a dense layer of huge leaves each fall. That keeps down all the competition.
