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...

Linking to...


  1. This is very beautiful, as is the quote.

    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 when I saw it was 1913, I was struck by the mother passed away a few months before her 90th 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 paint horses!!!
