Keep Close to Nature's Heart

"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

The Highest of the Mountains


It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it.

Isaiah 2:2

Snake River

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart's Desire

Meandering Snake River

In 1942 photographer Ansel Adams took a picture of Snake River standing on a car to give him better elevation and scope.  His pictures are world famous and were taken in black and white.  The photo above is my picture in black and white of the same landscape except there are trees and bushes now blocking the view of the river's curve. How technology and photography has changed since his time.  I am an amateur photographer but the advancement of the digital SLR camera and a computer with editing software gives me as good results.
