Moss On Stone

“There is an ancient conversation going on between mosses and rocks, poetry to be sure. About light and shadow and the drift of continents. This is what has been called the “dialect of moss on stone – an interface of immensity and minute ness, of past and present, softness and hardness, stillness and vibrancy, yin and yan.”
― Robin Wall Kimmerer, Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses

From our hike to Mason Lake via the Ira Spring Trail in the Mt. Baker – Snoqualmie National Forest.  Preserving places like this is one more reason why we must protect our National Parks and Forests.

  1. Absolutely, also support the parks and the organizations (Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund, National Parks Association, Natural Resources Defense Fund, and …) that are working so hard in this frightening political environment.

      1. Yes, and the Sierra Club is raising money to take the EPA to court. WE need this power to fight and resist the onslaught against the preservation of the earth and our health.

    1. I’m pretty sure you’d love it, Janet. 🙂 This part of the hike was a wonderful rest after 3.5 miles of a steep up hill climb. The views were worth it but oh was I sore the next day…
