Wilderness

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

— Lord Byron, (George Gordon)

Didn’t get to Maine this year (or Colorado or Abaco).  The last few days of perfect fall weather got me a bit homesick and I started clicking back through images from previous years.  The one above was taken about this time of year in Baxter State Park on a hike up Katahdin.

Next year? Even if I have to walk. I hear there’s a trail.

Had a wonderful time camping with my girls (wife +3) in summer of ’83 along side Katahdin. Momma Bear and 2 cubs made for an interesting night.
