An Aspen Grove...





"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, 
for going out, I found, 
was really going in."
John Muir


A little side note...this quote was from John Muir's writings in 1913...
the same year that both my parents were born...

  3. Perfect quote. I am not sure that people today take time to ponder much less express such things.

  7. Thank you Bibi and ClickN!!!

    I know you're right Rambling Round...I live here in God's country and forget to ponder the beauty...

    Thanks HansHB!!! The trees are actually Aspen...part of a very large grove...

    Thanks Adele! I don't usually see a date associated with any of the quotes I pick...so when I saw it was 1913, I was struck by the coincidence...my mother passed away a few months before her 90th birthday...in September of this year, she would have been 100!!! And my father in May!!! He passed away when he was 83...

    Thank you Linda!!! I like that image...love paint horses!!!

    Thank you Dragonstar!!!
