To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk
or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird's nest
or a wildflower in spring
- these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
~ John Burroughs, Naturalist (1837-1921) ~
Took a short break on my route Friday to check out the Spring run off starting in the Sierras. I love this spot along hwy 88 near Woodfords in CA. It is just off the road and has a nice big turn out so you can park and walk just a few steps to enjoy the beauty. In the Spring the water really gets rolling down this part of the creek and the waterfall that it creates is loud and powerful.
How many of you enjoy stopping along the road and enjoying what is just over the ridge or just a few steps away. It makes life surprising and wonderful and lessens the grind of the same old thing.
I took a short video to share and am adding a map to help you get started finding your own escape.
Peace, Love and Bliss,
