Oh California I'm coming home
Oh make me feel good rock 'n' roll band
I'm your biggest fan
California I'm coming home

Lyrics courtesy of Joni Mitchell from the song California.

I love living here in the wild wild west. In the land of the untamed and free. It fills your lungs up so full of fresh air that at any moment they might just burst. Nothing clears the head and the heart more than a hike into the great wilderness. These photos were taken on a crisp morning when the sky was so blue and the air so clear, it hurt my heart. An ache so deep. Not really a yearning for one thing, or regrets for the past. Just a weariness that life is so fleeting. One must not take it for granite. Heavy enough for you? Just wanted to share these beautiful photos and a few thoughts.
