“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.”
― John Muir


Sadie’s first trip to the mountains

This John Muir quotes pretty much sums up the last several months of my life. It was time to escape but I only had a day. The mountains are only 3.5 hours away – yes time to escape.

I loaded up my dog for her first trip to the mountains.  It was a cool and wet day. The high was 60 and it was drizzly and then went to heavy rain which is my perfect day in the mountains. Thankfully since I shoot Olympus cameras that are water resistant I don’t have to worry about the rain. I can shoot and get the images that I love.

Unfortunately I had to be back in Nashville the next morning or I would have stayed the long weekend but a day in the mountains is better than a day not in the mountains.
