Travel: The Suicide Forest

    The Forest starring Natalie Dormer just released here and while I haven't seen it, I'm not sure it will have quite the same effect on me that it will on other movie goers.  The reason is simply that I have made multiple trips to said forest and I found nothing but the serene loveliness of nature.  While there is no denying the tragic associations with this beautiful place, I felt like I should take just a moment to show it in a positive light with a few photos from our visits there.
    Aokigahara is the name of this forest and it means The Sea of Trees.  Has there ever been a more graceful name?  It sprang up on top of a lava flow at the foot of Mt. Fuji and the roots are shallow and twisting on top of still visible ripples of cooled lava. Should you ever find yourself in Japan it's worth a short detour from Fuji to take an hour or two to hike through these woods.
