I like that- "for going out, I found, was really going in". We lived near Muir Woods in northern California and went there to be in awe. Nice painting.

Love that quote.

Love the painting and the quote. John Muir is responsible for a lot of what we think is majestic and beautiful.

Dana, absolutely. I've changed the acknowledgement to your grayna site. I had acknowledged the Sacramento Scoop. I'm happy you are okay with my posting the image. It's just beautiful.
