"Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountaindays ..." / by Brad Schmidt

Overlooking the grandeur of the forest at Colchuck Lake here in the alpine wilderness!

Overlooking the grandeur of the forest at Colchuck Lake here in the alpine wilderness!

John Muir sums it up best... "Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountaindays, inciting at once to work and rest! Days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God.  Nevermore, however weary should one faint by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day, whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever."
