The Mountains are Calling

Yosemite Valley at Sunset Feb. 19th, 2009

" The mountains are calling, and I must go."
~ John Muir

This winter has been a busy one. So many different things calling to be done— to be attended to. I was so completely caught up in my list of things to do, that I was to the point where I was considering canceling our annual trip up to Yosemite during the school break. I had every reason not to go... then these words slipped into a crack of my reasoning.

"The mountains are calling and I must go," I could hear Muir whisper inside. Even though it was a shorter trip than previous years, I fell in love with Yosemite once again. I fell in love with the deep beauty of the wild and let the worries of the world go for a couple of days.

I return with sore muscles, full of good fun with my family, and a re-alignment of what is truly important in my life.

May beauty touch us all,

P.S. After this post I posted a video to youtube that includes part of this trip: Ski Yosemite 09
