mountaineer!
Up here all the world's
prizes seem nothing”
— John Muir
Mt. Phillips Peak
.
20 years ago this was a 30 to 50 foot flagpole and the
American Flag could be seen long before you hit the peak.
You need seek no rocky summit:
these high places are within you.
All the natural world around you
shows you clearly your reflection.

This ordeal is but a pattern
for a journey whose directions
are the whispers, urgings promptings
deep within your hearts and spirits.
