This blog is dedicated to all of us who spent most of our adult lives nuturing, caring, and inspiring our families. Now that our children are grown and many of us are single again, we are free to pursue our dreams.

Midday Muse: John Muir
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir.
I dedicate this Midday Muse to John Muir the father of the National Parks and one of the founders of the Sierra Club. Without his vision and determination these gems might have been lost or spoiled. The over commercialism of Niagara Falls is a good example of what happened to a natural wonder without the protection of our National Park Service.
Please share your National Park experiences and wonders.
