to sit and be quiet

Last weekend we camped and hiked in the Adirondacks. We stayed at Round Pond, then woke up and hiked Round Mountain and Noonmark Mountain. After I stopped huffing and puffing, I had a lot of time to sit and be quiet at the summit. And that is just what I needed. To sweat it out, gulp down fresh mountain air, stretch my legs and think about the people I love, the memories I carry with me and the opportunities that lay ahead. I left exhausted, rejuvenated and full of gratitude.

(First photo is mine, our friend took the last two.)


  1. L-O-V-E that last photo. I think I need a healthy dose of "sit and be quiet," too. Don't see it happening any time soon, though :(

  2. Beautiful! I need regular doeses of this so I don't become a threat to humanity...
