Beautiful and Freeing

“I (and sometimes my wife) have gone skinnyhiking . . . a number of times; in Idaho, Washington, and Kauai’s Na Pali trail. Haven’t done it since, oh, last weekend in the Cascades - deserted trail, hot day, no one else around - didn’t meet anyone for my hour hike - stopped at a creek crossing and climbed up on a ledge by a waterfall, out of sight of the trail, caught some sun and shade, dipped in a pool - aaah… gentle breezes, warm sun, what had been too hot became just right. A few brushes by plants as I walked the trails - gentle reminders of closeness to creation. Beautiful and freeing.” – Just Me
