Yesterday, I wrote of the forest at Tumalo Falls near Bend Oregon. Today I decided to hike through it. After being under the canopy for most of the day, I broke out into the open and found a picture suitable for Scenic Sunday. The Cascade's snow-spotted volcanoes are a muted background for layers of majestic pines. Sometimes it is best to look at a vista, breathe the air, take in the shapes, feel the breeze and listen to the quiet. It put my mind at ease and concurrently elated and calmed my heart. Such a view of life, which began without words.
