the wilderness beckoned…

“Without enough wilderness America will change. Democracy, with its myriad personalities and increasing sophistication, must be fibred and vitalized by regular contact with outdoor growths — animals, trees, sun warmth and free skies — or it will dwindle and pale.” Walter Whitman (Photo from Frances Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, 1982 backpacking trip)

A walk up…

an old forest trail got steeper and steeper. The sound of rushing water could be heard off to the side. I decided to venture off the trail, on a probable game trail, toward the sound of water. The wet forest was inviting, the steep trail not so much. A short distance in, I came across the tumbling stream heading for the Columbia River…not another person in sight.

Tahquitz Butte in California…

a majestic rock formation amongst many in that region, near Idyllwild, California. The rock, the lighting and the ominous sky combined just right for my taste.
