  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Nice pictures. I love the valley with no signs of civilization!



Thanks for the pics. Well done. They give a good perspective of the beautiful, but vast desolation of the YT. You are very fortunate to be seeing and experiencing it all while it is still pristine. The combination of warming and developing will most likely leave their mark. I just read in today's paper that the tree line will move 300 miles north in the Arctic by 2100, per scientist in Oslo, Norway. That is still a few years out, but the move has already started. Take care, be safe, have fun and enjoy the adventure. We're proud of you. the dad
