Some pictures from a recent weekend
spent backpacking in the Ventana Wilderness
I am often asked if I am not lonely on
my solitary excursions. It seems so self-evident that one cannot
be lonesome where everything is wild and beautiful and busy and
steeped with God that the question is hard to answer.
- John Muir (1838-1914)
Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink,
taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or
even touched - they must be felt with the heart."
