Monday, Monday. This day, as I live it now, at a desk job with a ringing phone and an endless pile of paperwork and filing to do... well, at 5:00 my Gypsy Feet are itching to run away to the hills. Oh wait a minute-- I already live in the hills! The only thing that satisfies, then, is to get deeper into the wild. Today I burst out of the office and drove up up UP the Highway 20 to the very edge of the High Sierra-- to the place where you can see the backbones of the mountains, and where the plants, who were still under snow when those of us below were running around in bare feet, think it is yet early summer. By the Bear River I could hear the lilting voices of the Fae, and the wetland meadow smelled of wild onions and mint. Ahh... my true home.
Have some of you been sending wonderful Intentions our way, that we should find THE best dresses this week? These four are just the tip of the iceberg, my friends! They will be in the shop Tuesday night... meanwhile, if you want to visit this wonderful corner of planet earth, here's how:
From the Highway 20, take the Bowman Lake Road turn. Shortly after turning, you will see the sign for the Sierra Discovery Trail on your left. Pull in and park here, follow the boardwalk over the wetland to the main trail. Happy hiking!
