there's so much to see here - but the best days are the ones spent doing very little.
some friends and i hiked from artist's point to ribbon lake the other day.
only around 5 miles total, but we had a lunch of wonderbread sandwiches
(a first for me! i felt impossibly unhealthy), and the boys fished and the girls
told secrets and spoke of plans to visit europe.
everything off the beaten road is so untouched. it's timeless and magnificent.
as we walked, we kept marveling at the fact that what we saw would be almost
exactly what the first explorers who chanced upon this place would have seen.
there's such a sense of history, yet an equal feeling that history isn't important.
these woods simply are, and they will continue to be so.
(we are grounded we are humbled we are one with everything)
