Pine-Trail

First Stop

Maybe after about a mile, maybe two, and not reaching the base of the range yet from our access point where the car was parked, we stopped here for a snack. Green. So f-ing green. It was like a pine tree rainforest. It was so lush, everything was soaking up, devouring the run off still melting in some places from the long winter that year. We could still hear the thunderstorm passing east bound ahead of us. We were relieved.

The Signs as Beautiful Things

. Aries -the wings on an eagle. The smell of fresh air. A hike above the clouds.
. 
Taurus -a field covered in wild flowers. A tent lightly kissed with dew. The smell and sound of a camp fire.
. 
Gemini -the strum of a guitar. The smell of lavender. The feel of fresh warm laundry. A babbling brook rolling through weather worn rocks.
. 
Cancer -the sound of music on the breeze. The feel of a relaxing nap. The smell of cinnamon. A waterfall cascading over a cave.
. 
Leo -the feel of a warm day on the beach. The sound of a violin. The smell of pine. A trail that winds through a canyon.
. 
Virgo -the smell of dew in the morning. The song of the cricket at night. The colorful flash of a cardinal flying by.
. 
Libra -a warm blanket. The smell of a good book. The sound of a song bird. A wood planked trail through an overgrown forest.
. 
Scorpio -the sound of winds. A dusty road surrounded by fields. The smell of spring. A walk barefoot through the grass.
. 
Sagittarius -Butterflies fluttering. The smell of chocolate. The crunch of autumn leaves. The sound of a lone loon calling in the night.
. 
Capricorn -a star filled sky. The feel of lying in the grass. The smell of freshly baked cookies. A twinkling celestial body in the distance.
. 
Aquarius -the feel of warm sand between the toes. The kiss of wind on waves. The smell of new flowers. The sound of a field full of crickets.
. 
Pisces -the hoot of an owl. A long song that dances through the air and whispers majestically in the ear. A small trail that wanders through the woods carved by animals.
