Out of the city
Out of the neighborhood
Away from the concerts, the theme parks, and the sports arenas
Away from the job, the school, and the people we know
Away from the politics, the neighbors, and the traffic
Away from social media, cable news, and gossip
Out - into nature
Out into the world
Out into our beautiful state
Stopping in that location, we entered a rocky hill, noticing that the whole world (here) was rocks piled on top of rock. We climbed around for a while, took some photographs, and returned to the car. While we appreciated the beauty of the natural scenery, we were not impressed. A state park for this?
One of the first features along the path was a carving of words (also pictured below). These particular words, commemorating World War 2, are about a hundred years old. I had to run my fingers along one of the grooves to feel the history.
