I'd create if mountains were put on my agenda

 "The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing."

"Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain-passes.  

They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action."

John Muir

 

"The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love.”."

John Muir

"The thought is constant --- go to the church of Nature.

Let the tired and worn out go. Go! Drop it and Go!

Go to the beauty of life that is free and open to everyone.

Go and just be there in it, as a part of it"

John Muir

i got to use this pen

 

hiked sixty-seven miles

over two mountain passes

a griz snarled loud,

bolted off into the brush

it stood across the White River

at least ten feet tall, no joke

 

slept in a mule shed

huddled between two bales of hay

and three propane tanks

listened to the flutes at Indian Point

all night long,

really all night

 

in the morning,

pulled on two wet socks

stuck them in

two wet boots

ate ½ of a granola bar

the mice had left---

got lost on Ahorn Creek

 

got found on Ahorn Creek

said hallelujah to the void

(i once was lost, but)

then i got to Pearl Basin

then i got to Jumbo Mountain

then i got to use this pen

"The waving of a pine tree

 on top of a mountain

-- a magic wand in Nature's hand --

every devout mountaineer know its power..."
