Blessings of One Mountain DayPosted: October 9, 2015
Greetings and Salutation! In lieu of words, my own anyway, I will simply post some pictures from a recent backpacking trip in the Trinity Alps Wilderness and quotes from John Muir. I hope you enjoy and please get out into the mountains, deserts or some wild place and away from this computer!
“The mountains are calling and I must go.”
~John Muir (in a letter to his sister)
…the blessing of one mountain day; whatever his fate, long life or short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever.
~ John Muir “My First Summer in the Sierra”
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
~ John Muir (“Our National Parks”)
