Pasadena is a foothill town, pressed up against the San Gabriel Mountains. We face nature every day, whether nature likes it or not. In places like this, sometimes you can see entryways to the underworld of faerie. There's at least one on the Sam Merrill Trail, not far from the first mile marker. It doesn't photograph well, probably because the faeries have put spells on it. A couple of tree trunks at Hahamongna Watershed Park that I've tried over and over again to photograph refuse to be captured, which tells me they are indeed what I guess them to be.
This, then, must be an ordinary doorway. To the sky, perhaps, or to Brigadoon. I've shown it to you in black & white because the color seemed too extraordinary.
