Coincidentally, I just happened to post about the last time I attempted climbing the mountains and getting their good tidings. Sannasbagblogspot .com
And so did Barb at Before Morning Breaks: http://barbfroman.wordpress.com/2011/11/14/smart-trail-gear-for-slugs/
Beautiful as always, especially on a Monday morning. :-)
Hi Pat, thanks for the plug. Isn't it strange we were all thinking about the mountain. I wish I could capture the exhilaration as beautifully as John Muir. I guess that's because my boots are talking too much.
Lovely quote. Tried to leave a comment a week or two ago on the Alzheimer's piece you wrote about your dad - beautiful. My father suffered from somewhat early onset (early 60s diagnosis), was very tragic and difficult to witness. especially since his mother had the same thing so he knew the score. And now me and my siblings all watch for signs.
