Everyone needs some place to go to ground themselves, to experience the magic of Mother Nature and to connect with animals. My place is Derby Pond, located in Whatcom Falls Park (Bellingham, Washington). As far as I’m concerned, Whatcom Falls Park acts as the jewel in the city. Besides, providing two ponds (one is a marsh), the park also provides several waterfalls, and Whatcom Creek racing through past cedar, Douglas fir, and an assortment of hardwood trees.
