There is no better way to summarize this post, than from the words of John Muir, himself, from a book I read a long time ago, that seems even more relevant today;
“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. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature’s sources never fail.” ~ John Muir, “Our National Parks”.
