  • I have experienced a certain peace in this area. A sense of oneness with the earth and hearing it's loud silence. Life. Life finds a way to thrive and reproduce greatness of the soul. So loud is the silence. Yet, the earth takes my soul into it's layers. Life after life after life. This is earth, the planet of life. The silence is so loud... Yet, I am loud in my head and silent with my tongue.
  • Had an outstanding experience hiking the loop today. Spend about 2 hours, ~3 mile hike there total. We are novices from the Midwest so some points got our heart rates up, some mild climbing, definitely not ADA accessible, but brought water/snacks and took some shady breaks. Felt like a solid accomplishment for our group. Took lots of photos. Extremely kind and helpful volunteers under a tent at the parking lot - no visitor center/etc but it didn’t matter. Some porta potties on site if needed.
