There is certainly that serenity there. It is in a roadless area where there is still a chance that the accomplishments of nature over millions of years might be protected. It ties us to our planet, our home.
The transitional seasons can be amazing. Sometimes it’s hard to tell autumn from spring, particularly in your world. I do love seeing the trails looping off into the distance. The urge to “get going” is strong!
In these conifer forests there is much similarity between spring and fall.
The trails are especially inviting at those times. I wonder just how many times I have followed that trail during the past twenty years (my photo library from there contains over 600 photos) and perhaps I don’t want to know how many more times there will be: that number keeps dwindling.
Eternity is a very long time, and it is my hope that I will spend an infinite amount of it visiting that place and many others quite like it.
