The Deep Green

Deep Green of Green Country


White Crowned Sparrow in the Green Hills of Oklahoma

Many years back when we lived in North Pole, Alaska on the old Permafrost Ranch I would write about the “Deep Green of the Boreal Forest” of Alaska.  Spring and summer brought upon the countryside a deepening green color overlay  to the forest.  Those of you who have been there, I’m sure you understand what I’m trying to convey.  Of all the places we have traveled to so far, the hills of Northeast Oklahoma also has a quality green light that permeates the forest here.  In fact as a tourist attraction, they begin to call this area the Green Country to differentiate it from the western parts of Oklahoma.  Those areas tend to be more like the southern plains than the forested hills of the north east.
