The park’s lodge is brimming
with row after row of decorated
trees, contributed by businesses
and organizations from all over
the county. It’s the annual
Festival of Trees, a grand kick- off
to the holiday season. My guests
and I walk among them bedazzled
by the ingenuity and beauty on display.
When we leave, the sun is just beginning
to sink behind the hills, and we find
that the park itself is holding a Festival
of its own.
