- White Mountain
my "Loves of Life" is hiking. Taking off on a trail I've never been on
before and following it until I feel I've gotten the most out of it, that
I can get. I've been on desert trails, mountain trails, trails along rivers
and lakes and even along city streets that feel like trails and I've loved
every one of them. Even trails I've been on more than once, I can usually
find something new that I hadn't seen the first couple of times.
trail I was walking along when I took this picture, I had probably just
crossed the 9,000 ft elevation mark. The mountain standing in front
of me, known as Sierra Blanca in Southern New Mexico stands at 10,000 feet
elevation. At this altitude the clouds are so close and billowy you can
almost reach out and touch them. And as you watch the clouds roll over
that mountain top, all the problems that you had that day, seem to go with
them, and leave you standing in a total peace of mind.
