An Afternoon Hike to a Favorite Place in the Park!

After a morning of tasks, I borrowed a camera from Helene (since mine died) and hit the sloppy wet Tower Trail to witness for myself the emerging spring. A tug of war between the sun and clouds saw the clouds losing their hold on the sky as I sat and journaled at a cluster of exposed granite along the trail. I took this photo of my hiking companions under a fair sky amidst quickly melting snow at a place I call Lower Tranquility Rock, a place I have sat countless times -- to contemplate life, work out problems, watch the world go by, sing to hikers on full moon hikes, journal with students, watch birds...a favorite and special place in the park.
