A Glimpse Of Heaven

The smell of the Redwood trees, campfires and sunscreen.

The sounds of the birds chirping, the creek flowing, children laughing.

The feel of the sunshine on my face, the breeze in my hair, the ice cold stream on my feet.

The taste of pure water after a hike, meals made on a portable stove, roasted marshmellows.

The view of the mountains, meadows, streams.

This is the place where magic lives in the trees; where memories are stored behind each boulder; where promise whispers in the wind.

A place where I can get perspective, and at the same time let my imagination run wild.

The place that feels like home, but offers endless opportunites for adventure.

A place where families and friends gather for games or stories around the campfire.

In this place, I look out at snow-capped mountains while soaking in a pool of hot water that came bubbling right out of the ground.

In this place, my dogs run happily with their long, pink tongues hanging out the sides of their mouths.

In this place, my mind and body feel more alive, and yet at rest.

In this place, my soul feels closer to God.

This place is one of my favorites in the world. An escape, a getaway, a refuge. A glimpse of heaven.
