Build Yourself A Great Story

Posted by Ed Reif» on - - 0 comments»

Marjorie Glacier is one of the most photogenic glaciers in
Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. I had the good fortune to be there today
None of these landscapes are ugly because they are natural and wild! 


I learn about geography by traveling by cruise ship; geology, the day after a  huge event-- They  take place  every day somewhere around the planet--- earthquakes, hurricanes, even glaciers move. 


When I attempt  to pick out anything by itself in Alaska , I find it connected to everything else in the Universe, yet I feel my smallness because of its vastness. The wilderness is therapy: Only by going alone in silence, without baggage and buffets,could I  truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other traveling, including on this ship, is Karaoke traveling-a cheap imitation. But it's still worth doing. I can hear the ice sheet-music of the glacier calving and  the music of the bay  written in ice river lines.

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean-John MUir
