Scenic view of the river and mountains from the rocks.

It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.(Sir Edmund Hillary)


Beautiful sunset through the trees from the view of the trails.

Even through the darkness, the beautiful things in life always shine through.” (Hunter Seymour)


Sunset from behind the clouds.

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.” (Linda Hogan)


The reflection of life through the reflection of a sunset on the clear canvas of water.

Everything starts with a sunrise, but it’s what we do before it sets that matters.” (K. McGraw)


Sunset over the trees for the beach of the lake.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” (Anonymous)
