What Gives Me Hope
Being the change
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why
I was 15...attending a Grateful Dead concert... I had no idea... and then I did... It for the first time taught me of true diversity through music... then I was 17 and attended a Rainbow Gathering, that's were Space originated... the diversity intigrated into my soul... Being 27 has changed my life... for the first time I have let go of my past, unafraid of what the future/karma has in story. I have a better idea of the person I want to be, I seek out things that interest me. I am rediscovering my love for reading... being more wise... forgiving myself.... I have this ability to meet healers of all sorts seemingly were ever I go, and it has been expressed on many planes that my purpose is to spead what I refer to as luvin-peace all around. What a purpose to live up too... it's gonna be fun and hard... and falling in and out of love... namaste'
We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimention and not in others.... unevenly... We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present and future mingle and pull is backwards, forwards or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.-Anias Nin
Hey! Thanks for the comment! So cool you have a cabin near Warm Lake my most favorite area. I was at Trail Creek not too long ago. Great soak but tons of people, ugh. Do you know if 474 north is open to Yellow Pine yet? They were working on the road a couple weeks ago. I hope you are well and have been out enjoying life out of doors. Peace, J
Your feeling was right on... Shower Bath and beyond was great. I feel renewed, and a little culture shock. So much noise, waste. Everyone should backpack, visit true wilderness. Be careful out there, yankee fork was closed due to fires yesterday on my way out, as was the road to bear valley. Many hot springs are either on fire or blocked by fire. In peace, J
No worries I've discovered that everyone initially wants to go, but it's a different story when the time comes. This is especially true for the longer pack trips. Sadly, my main backpacking partner passed in an accident last year, so it has been somewhat difficult to find someone to go with. I usually end up by myself on the longer trips, which I've discovered can be quite rewarding.
The journey to Shower Bath through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is epic to say the least. From the trail you can see ancient petroglyphs and settler cabins overtaken by mother nature, and get to experience a true forest wilderness that rarely sees human visitors.
Ahhh, Shower Bath. Without a doubt the most unique I have ever experienced. The trek in is a rough one. There's two routes; one requires 4-5 days and approx. 40 mile round trip backpack. The bonus is that you get to camp at a new hot springs each night on your way to SB. The other route is much shorter, and steeper - with an even worse access road. Both routes have burned over the last 3 years, and I have been told that the long, revegitation grass has taken the place of the trail and has provided excellent breeding grounds for ticks. An alas, the narrows before SB - the trail goes right into Warm Springs Creek for the quarter mile in, sheer walls on each side means no access until late summer due to mountain runoff. I am making plans to go this summer, here's the pics from my last trip.
