"I embrace emerging experience. I participate in discovery. I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector. I want the experience of the butterfly.

---William Stafford

"May the sun bring you new energy by day, May the moon softly restore you by night, May the rain wash away your worries And the breeze blow new strength into your being, And all the days of your life may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty."

---Apache Blessing

"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting."

--Henry David Thoreau

"If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys."

--Chief Dan George
About Me:

Call me...."woodland wanderer", or "Weatherman", my trail name. I'm the guy who's going to stop and look and photograph every animal track, wildflower, waterfall, large tree, small tree, tree/rock carving, bluff shelter, butterfly, and snake I come across. It's irrelevant to me if I cover three miles in a day or fifteen. I want to soak in everything.
