A beautiful day


“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 
Nature's peace will flow into you 
as sunshine flows into trees. 

~John Muir

I know just where to come when I'm missing the sun and pines and blue sky! Lovely photo and the words of John Muir are perfect.

Your mountains there are something out of fiction. They rise up out of the middle of nowhere and take your breath away. LOVE THEM. Awed by them.

John Muir - a favorite hero of mine. He never lived to see Hetch Hetchy restored but I hope it happens in my life time. What a worthy and rich man.

What a beautiful view - I am in Portland and I wish we could see Jefferson from here. Do have a nice view of Hood and St. Helens though. They seem so exotic, snow-capped mountains hiding out in the desert!
