One winter I took a road trip up to Vancouver, Canada. We stopped to walk around Stanley Park one afternoon. We started the hike in some really deep woods and the trees were so thick that you could barely see the sky though the branches. The first clearing we came to was on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean and mountains in the distance. There was this dead tree right in the center of our view. Out on the last branch there were two bald eagles looking out over the ocean. It was a very peaceful and amazing experience. It is one of those images that was so inspirational, it is burned in my memory and I will never forget that moment.
