I felt so drawn… Deep into the center of the mystical bamboo forest. Everything got darker as I stepped off the trail and into the enchantingly deep emerald green of the bamboo forest. I carefully stepped through the stalks feeling the coolness of the air as I header deeper within. The tall slender bamboo stalks were creaking, knocking and swaying all around, as if they were speaking a sacred lost language. The trail completely disappeared from view, and suddenly there was nothing but swaying bamboo stalks around. It was a bit disorienting, so I paused to soak in these completely magical surroundings, and then I looked up.
