While Cares Drop Off
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." ~ John Muir
Photographed on the Upper Basin Trail, near Flagstaff Arizona's Lockett Meadow. I had awoken an hour before first light and started making my way up the trail to find some remote place, where sun met aspen covered hills. While racing up that trail I realizing I should have left sooner and started to feel some upset about my poor planning. However in the moments as nature's peace and the sunshine flowed into the tree tops, I decided to stop my march and let the cares of my missed intentions drop off like autumn leaves -- and enjoy Nature's peace.
