Mt. Rainier & Me
"I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2
You should know by now that this is one of my most favourite verses in the Bible. I feel my soul uplifted when I am in the great outdoors. I can see the distant hills from where I sit in this office out both windows. One of them, the ones behind our house, are mostly shrouded by the great elm trees in our backyard. After fall has done its duty, I will be able to see these hills all winter long. The ones in the front of our house, Anarchist Mountain its called, I can see all year long, even though our house is down in a hollow. Fortunately, the neighbours across the street don't have super tall houses so I can still see the mountains over top. If I couldn't see them I don't think we would have bought this house. I needed to be able to see them. I would have felt clausterphobic if I couldn't.
Sometimes just seeing them out the window isn't enough. As you may know, I love to be out in nature. My most favourite place, where I blog about often & photograph often is Hayne's Point. Though its small, and this time of year, loaded with tourists, I can still find a place of peace & tranquility when I visit there.
Or I drive, I drive to where I can see more. Sometimes I stop, I walk or I hike, but often the drive is enough for me to find my center again.
And, as you know, I love finding NEW places. I love to travel, to road trip & to discover new locations to fall in love with the great outdoors & marvel in creation. There are places of beauty around every corner!
