“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”–John Muir

“Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery.”– John Ruskin

“Mountains!  Think of them, speak of them, look upon them!…Here they are in all their majesty and abundance.”–Isaiah Kephart

“I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.”  Poem by Joyce Kilmer
