Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day, and Shyla and I gave thanks for the incredible mountains and forest around us.
We looked up at the trees in wonder, thinking about how many seasons they've seen in their long lives. They were born before either of us, and most of them will outlive us by many years. We are specks in the life of Mother Earth.
We also thought about our impact on the world around us. We love frolicking in the forest...
... but we do our best to leave the forest as we found it and not to scare the wildlife. After all, it is the time of year when baby animals are most abundant in our forest. This is from almost exactly 3 years ago.
Happy Earth Day to you.


  1. Thank you for sharing your corner of mother earth, with amazing photos everything, from wild animals to the beauty of snowflakes.
    Shyla is a joy to view out in the elements of nature.

  2. A very beautful post for Earth Day!
    I know how much you love your forest and trees, and treasure every trail that you explore. And we know how careful you are around all the animals,,, and their babys,,, yes,, its your world and their world.

  5. Thank you for the tribute to trees. I was touched by Jane Goodall's tribute when she was a guest on Stephen Colbert, of all places. She spoke of her awe at touching the bark of a tree that was a sapling 2000 years ago. Thank you for sharing the bear with her cubs too - delightful!

  6. So nice. I wish we could educate everyone to view the forest the same way.

  7. It's always good to stop and appreciate your surroundings. We are fortunate.
