“Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue.”

-John Muir

I believe our parks have two great secrets.  One is nighttime.

The other is winter.

I have dreamed of seeing the Cascades for years.  The girls and I had the park entirely to ourselves…miles and miles of frozen cascades.

We were lost in wonder.

Time stood still.

It was a moment of rest, a glimpse of heaven and who we really are.

“By forces seemingly antagonistic and destructive Nature accomplishes her beneficent designs — now a flood of fire, now a flood of ice, now a flood of water; and again in the fullness of time an outburst of organic life.”

-John Muir
