“Who wouldn't be a
mountaineer!
Up here all the world's
prizes seem nothing”
— John Muir
Mt. Phillips Peak
.
Years ago, this post was a 30 to 50 foot flagpole and the
American Flag could be seen long before you hit the peak.

It can be seen in its former glory on the Photos '89 page.
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.
