The Trail of the Cedars in Glacier National Park winds through massive cedar and other evergreen trees just off Going to the Sun Road. A boardwalk makes it accessible to all and it's one of the most used and loved trails in the Park. You're likely to find raucous kids, jostling tourists, and bridal parties on photo shoots when you visit at most times of day.

Stop by in early morning or late evening, though, to get the real, bone-deep feel of the place.  The power of Avalanche Gorge and the mystery of its cyan waters, which was the inspiration for my Cold Waters mandala, the majestic cedars, the birdsong, and the dripping rock face against which a dense carpet of ferns clusters.  Those ferns, which inspired this mandala, bring the reminder to stop and look, pause and really feel this place while walking gently on the Earth.  I've added a bit of my poetry, Whisper Beneath the Forest Shadow, to convey the experience of visiting shortly before dusk as things settle back down and the shadows reclaim the land.

This blank card is 5" x 7" and is printed on silky smooth, bright white paper using pigment inks. The original color photo and the story of the piece are printed on the back of the card. A quality white envelope is included and the price includes free USPS first class shipping in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This fern mandala card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
