What a day! We took time off from our work around the property and drove up to Artist’s Point overlooking Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan. WOW! I wish there were a better word to use for such splendor, but in the presence of such magnificent scenery, that’s all I could say. The air was so clear; it made the colors on the mountains look as though they had been enhanced…like when a plain picture is photo-shopped so it looks kind of fakey.
The magnitude of the mountains is impossible to grasp. I felt like the tiniest speck in their presence. Pure white glaciers hanging on the granite peaks almost hurt my eyes with their intensity. Ravens soaring on the updrafts floated right by us as we walked along the trail. The crowds of people appeared to be awestruck and looked around with shining eyes and smiles. A quiet, respectful reverence filled the entire experience. What a world we live in! And how blessed we are to have eyes to see it.
