#28daysoftshirts – Day 11 in Mirkwood

Mirkwood National Forest

I love National Forests. And I love Tolkien. This shirt is two great tastes that taste great together. It does get some double takes from folks who wonder where Mirkwood is (I have to carefully gauge just how detailed my answer needs to be). But it also gets a lot of knowing chuckles. There were a few missed opportunities to take the joke a level higher (like instead of Department of Agriculture maybe something about Wood Elves? Maybe a little spider in the sign corner?) but I forgive it the opportunity costs.

Would I go hiking in Mirkwood? Probably. But there’s one national forest that doesn’t have to worry about the environmental impact of hikers going off-trail!
