The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: The Climb

Jumping from boulder to boulder and never falling, with a heavy pack, is easier than it sounds; you just can’t fall when you get into the rhythm of the dance.
— Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

The Palouse landscape peeks thru the trees on my way to the summit of Kamiak Butte.

Looking out at the Palouse landscape from Kamiak Butte.

Climbing offers a unique perspective

Able to look far and wide

Landscape appears enormous and simultaneously small

Looking out

I see what I am always part of

The place I call home

Wide and far -- space to roam
