You are not in the mountains. The mountains are in you. – John Muir

Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it. – Andy Rooney

Yes, indeed, I did see a bear. It is the tiny black spot above the m in my watermark in the above photo. I zoomed in to try to get a closer look for all of posterity but, alas, I did not succeed.

How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountain-top it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make – leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone – we all dwell in a house of one room – the world with the firmament for its roof – and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track. — John Muir
