I just got back from a trip to NC, up into the Blue Ridge Mountain chain. I’ve been there many times, but every time we drive up to the first overhang, and park the car, the view blows me away. I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking for this entry, but I thought it necessary to throw in a quote from a book I just read.
“The Lord often has his prophets climb mountains to converse with Him. I always wondered why He did that, and now I know the answer: when we are on high, we can see everything else as small. Our glory and sadness lose their importance. Whatever we conquered or lost remains there below. From the heights of the mountain, you see how large the world is, and how wide its horizons.”
-Paulo Coelho (The Fifth Mountain)
May all your adventures be filled with beauty, wide eyes, and moments of reflection.
