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
The water cascades through a series of crevices and chutes and pools into pockets. Rock climbing and water slides in one? Yes, sir. It's an amazing place to ponder the world we live in and the size of a single human.
It's also fun to spot wildlife in our state parks. We enjoyed watching rabbits, lizards, and deer, and I appreciated the chance to consider the flora along trailside.
