In all things of nature...

The Mystical world of Infrared. 

Sometimes I take hikes and meander about on the least popular trails on KVR. 

These trails are unappreciated and often missed because they don't offer ice caves and magnificent wonders of the world.


One can imagine Tree Ents moving about on the bluffs with their gnarly twisted roots that seem to be able to hang on rocks with no effort.

Yet they can resist flash floods and high winds....


to teeter above...
ever watchful from the bluffs...


...
and guide you along a wonderous world of 
something else...

These are places that stop you in your tracks and humble you deep inside. If it doesn't, then you are not a living cognizant creature.


I took Bill along this trail.

I cannot tell you the joy I took in showing him this world of pines/bluffs/trails and snow.
He kept stopping in his tracks and saying:

"Oh wow. Oh Wow!"
Over and over again. 
He mourned over the fact that he'd lived in our area for nearly 26 years and had never explored this region.
Yes, his job, his family and bringing up children had been his priority. And now...

I could show him the magical landscape around him. 



As we parted ways at our vehicles, he asked me this.

"How did I not know about this before?"

My answer was fairly simple. I replied, "You didn't have time for it before."


In all things of nature
There is something of the marvelous.
