I have always loved hiking from the trees up into the alpine. It is the most concrete representation of freedom and space one can ever experience.. My border collies love it too, and cover large distances just to see what is around.

I plan my trips so I can be home dancing at the Rose on weekends. The physical and spiritual renewal the mountains have given me comes through in the time I have with women with sweet dispositions.


“Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” 
― John Muir

A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.
