The views from two different hikes. Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park both offered up their own unique breathtaking beauty, no matter what elevation. A reward around every corner, every tree and rock.
“I never saw a discontented tree.” — John Muir
It was a surreal experience sharing space with the largest of the living, groves of sequoias standing tall and wide, quietly at peace. Their presence was one of wisdom and confidence, while remaining humble, as if knowing their purpose was to just be.
Craving a change, but not quite ready to give up on summer.
Back again, to see the sacred flower in bloom. Lotus Land I.
Just a perfect summer day ending with one epic summer sunset.
“We shall have spring again.” — C.S. Lewis
The spring equinox is fast approaching and things aren’t going so well. My beloved magnolias didn’t stand a chance this year. And only time will tell, but I have a feeling everyone’s favorite pink blossoms might suffer a similar fate. So in the meantime, I’ve been revisiting old photos and sharing some here.
Best of luck out there. For a bit of cheer, I leave you with the humble kumquat.
