This bible quote, which appears on a sign in Radium Hot Springs in British Columbia, has always summed up how I feel in the mountains. Peaceful. Calm. Any stress I may be experiencing just disappears.
I hope this Christmas season finds you in a place of peace, wherever that may be for you.
And for 2018, I wish you all interesting trails to explore, safe adventures to experience, and the wonders of nature before you, as often as possible.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
