I love the Adirondacks. I recently spent time there with some friends. As I am driving toward the mountains, I am overwhelmed by their beauty and majesty. The lush, tall pines beckon me and welcome me. It is also sentimental, as we spent part of our honeymoon there. The Adirondacks feel like home to me.
My friends and I took a hike on a beautiful trail. When one hikes, it is a chance to get more intimate with the mountains, and to see the individual pine trees. I relish these times, taking in the scents, and breathing in the beauty. I am glad to be home again.
