"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. "

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away,
once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean."

~both quotes by John Muir

I'm taking those hiking poles and heading off to the mountains Saturday morning for an overnight backpacking trip with my son, Aaron, and my sister's family. We'll be hiking to a beautiful spot to camp, and I am SO excited!

Have a beautiful weekend. <3 I'm going to!

  2. I'm so glad you finally got to go! Hope there's a nice sunrise in it for you ;-).

  3. silly me ~ I thought it was 'finally' your highschool post ;-)

  4. "Wash your spirit clean" That sounds lovely! I hope it does that and more for you. Enjoy your trip!

  5. Thanks jAne, Laura, "the momma", and Mary! I really did have a wonderful time. And if you want to avoid hearing me go on about it, you might want to stay away for a day or two! :-)
