Thoughts on Conservation, nature, hiking, gardening, travel...

John Muir wrote of hiking behind Yosemite Falls when the wind had blown it away from the cliff. The wind stopped and he was afraid that he would be stuck there as no one could survive the pounding water. The wind again blew a clear path for him and he was safe. I thought of that story as we watched the wind playing with the falls last week.
Our son Eric and his family had come to the cabin for the holiday and we went down into the valley so they could see the falls running almost full. Then grandson Michael and I both came down with colds and we all left the mountains earlier than anticipated.
