A few good books too never fail to make good travel companions.
& off we go camping ..
.. in the rocky mountains with beautiful human beings.
Despite the cold yet starry night, those beautiful desert people kept my heart warm.
‘I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading to the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities. Do you blame me for staying here, where i feel that i belong and am one with the world around me? It is true that i miss intelligent companionship, but there are so few with whom i can share the things that mean so much to me that i have learned to contain myself. It is enough that i am surrounded by beauty.’ Everett Ruess
“The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.”
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden, or Life in the Woods.
‘For children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.’ G.K. Chesterton
& we found faces in the rocks.
