Bittersweet dreams...

We are attempting the completion of a bittersweet dream this weekend.  Ever since my brother's death in 2002 I have been looking forward to the day when the boys would be old enough to do a special family hike around Mt. Hood- now's the time.

I love this mountain... so did he.

It's more about the journey than the destination.  I look forward to giving a full report next week.

“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

It's one of my all time favorite quotes and seems perfect as you head out to Hood. ((hugs))

Hi Heather. I read your original post, and it brought tears to my eyes. I am thinking of you and your family. I hope that your experiences this weekend bring some joyfulness.
