{Wordless Wednesday} Peace

Peace

"I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me — I am happy." ~Hamlin Garland, McClure’s, February 1899

  8. My husband and I haven't camped in years. We own all the equipment and used to take the kids regularly. I guess we got old, and the kids left.
