“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
I can’t help but thing about John Muir and his writings when I’m in a national park, especially one that he spent a lot of time in.
Yesterday, Mr Chiots and I went bike riding in Acadia National Park. In the morning, the roads were closed to car traffic, which made for a wonderful time. When the roads opened back up we drove the loop to get in all the wonderful scenery, stopping at places we hadn’t on previous trips.
You really can’t help but be in awe of nature when you are in places like this. When we garden we try to create beauty in our little corner of the world, but it really is at its best when left alone. We’re lucky to have such a treasure so close to our home.
What’s your favorite national park?Filed under Quote | Comments (3)
