“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity… – John Muir
Happy Monday everybody! I hope you were all able to spend a little time outside these past few days. It was a balmy 78° on the Jersey shore where I spent Saturday shooting a wedding. I love the ocean, but I have to admit, it felt really nice driving back to North Carolina and the mountains.
John Muir, who founded the Sierra Club, is an inspiration to many, including myself. Time and time again, I read his words and feel a deep longing to immerse myself in nature. My recent return from Colorado has me dreaming of mountain climbing and through hikes of the Appalachian Trail. Originally I planned on writing a post today about hiking the Flatirons 1+2 trail in Boulder, but as I started researching how the peaks were formed, I realized I didn’t have quite enough time to research, digest and reiterate. Sit tight though that post is coming. I hope you love rocks as much as I do.
