The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. – John Muir
Over the labor Day weekend I took a drive up the 395 with nothing but a city-get-away in mind. We set up camp near Whitney Portal and laid my head to rest with a perfect view of the Milky Way up above. The very next day we awoke at 5 am and began our 5-mile trek up Maysan Lake trail. It was a tough hike for me but once we made it 4 hours later no other agenda was in mind but to relax and explore the area and set up camp once again for the next 2 days. I took a book and my knitting gear with me but only read 15 pages and did a mere dent on my scarf. I did nothing but marvel at the area, the stars above and I unplugged from the city. For all I knew, L.A. could have encountered the Zombie Apocalypse and I wouldn’t have known.
Great weekend with good company.
