The light at the end of the (rock) tunnel

Standing beneath the “Duck Rock” at Devil’s Den sure reminds a person how small they are. As you can see, it’s not the sort of place to just skip and run with pure abandon unless you want a broken ankle (or a broken anything, really), but if you’re just taking your time and enjoying the view, go for it. I like how the light intrudes on this shot; in this ancient space there’s shadow and seclusion, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel . . .
