Sometimes when you're building or landscaping you just can't achieve that vision you have of the final outcome. I've been fussing and fussing with that forest and finally decided it was my "vision" of the forest that was the problem.
So I extended the rock down on the mountain and have left only a few hardy trees clinging to its steep slopes. I've also reduced their size to help with the illusion of distance. I'll do more lush plantings on the land closer to the built up area on the island.
And yes I've got the Tunes in SL "poster" up but since Crap is changing things I may have to get new tp directions for it. :)
