Fairy rings and cypress knees

There is magic to be found in San Felasco, I am sure of it!  On the Gulf Power side of the park, where the smaller trails are, enchantment was everywhere, beginning with the moss-covered tree remains that must house the wee folk.  Entire cities of tiny beings surely make their home in these ancient cities.  And for those who like a more modern city, condos with balconies dot the fallen trees, promising all the conveniences of a contemporary home.

Deep within the woods, a cypress clothed in green stands guard, watching the forest for signs of danger.  The ancient oak tells a darker tale, with foreboding for those who dare to continue.  Secrets of the forest remain just out of reach to visitors.

A fairy ring of frilly fronds surrounded by cypress knees lies at the center of the forest.  Bewitching green lures the innocents in, but soft ground surrounding it warns them of the danger.  For those too rash to heed the warnings, who knows what dangers lurk beyond the land of mortals?
