Miles and miles of driving led to a quiet, peaceful mountain retreat where the air and water are clean. Everyone vacationing were physically fit, doing all sorts of outdoor activities like jogging, kayaking, swimming, canoeing and of course hiking.
Great food, and amazing views made this artist relax and create drawings/painting collages in my sketchbook.
In the distance was the purple colored Whiteface Mountain, giving perspective medophorically to our lives. The anchor to all those photos and drawings, that mountain of 4,865 feet high which was one of the skiing destinations during the 1980s winter Olympics.
It was a blessing to wake up and peer out and see the waters reflecting the various lights of the day, the sun rising and dusk with the pinks, oranges and blues. Resident ducks quacked early in the day as if to greet another fine day.
Being in the mountains reminded me to be grateful for the cooler air and the amazing mother Earth.
A long drive back to Baltimore where the heat index was over 100’ at least I can smile having to escape the heat for a while.
