“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein
I think we give the destination of our journey too much attention. Too often we are more focused on what we are going to do when we get to our destination with too little attention paid to how we are going to get there. Often, we lose focus on how to get there because our time and energy spent focused on getting there.
The reason why I like hiking so much is because it is all about the journey. As I walk along the path, I try to enjoy every step of the way by taking in the fresh air and capturing every beautiful sight I see with my camera. I try to walk quietly so I can take in all of the sounds from birds singing overhead to the stream flowing by my path.
I took these photos when I visited South Mountain State Park last summer. We were camping nearby in Golden Valley, and I was looking for somewhere to explore and hang out at. My son and I hiked about three miles to check out all of the sites. We found two awesome waterfalls along the way. This is a must visit park to check out because of the beautiful well-kept trails and amazing sites to see. We only saw part of the park that day, and I hope I can visit again in order to see more of it.
