"'Fern Canyon' is the 20th and final piece in my Highway 1 series of original, hand-printed serigraphs. This 12 color print is the culmination of five years of work, countless hours of research, and drawing- followed by tens of thousands of hand-pulled impressions. Fern Canyon is one of the most unusual places I've been; in fact, I've never seen anything like it. It takes a bit of effort to get there, but it's well worth it. After a dusty drive on a dirt road, you reach the beach. Walking along the dunes toward the entrance to the canyon, you pass grazing wild elk. Within minutes, just a few yards from crashing surf, you find yourself in a lush, narrow canyon. Sheer walls rise abruptly from the sandy floor and are covered with ferns and mosses. The overwhelming lushness, intense greenery, and constant trickle of water is stunning. At times the only place to walk is in the small stream running through the canyon to the sea. If you've never been to Fern Canyon, I promise it's worth the trip." ~Jake
