While the featured image is not your typical glass-pained window, the frame of the pine trees yields a glorious view of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.
“Oh these vast, calm measureless mountain days, days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God.” John Muir
For all its natural beauty, sadly, this very mountain endured a recent rock-slide where reports from bystanders described “rocks the size of an apartment building” randomly detached and fell onto the valley floor.
John Muir’s sublime quote can be applied to any leisure experience we choose. Our leisure time spent enjoying wonderful places on our vacations and every day lives also opens countless windows to the wonders of our world.
This can be as adventurous as spending a day exploring an old, abandoned lighthouse in Mexico…
…to discovering a partially submerged window in an old abandoned pumphouse on Lake Natoma while stand-up paddling…
…Or as simple as enjoying the view of the swimming pool from a condo window…
