"Please human kind wake up and realize the very real consequences of your each and every action. In today's society it is not that 'can we make a difference'...we do make a difference and therefore it is up to each and every one of us to decide what kind of difference that is going to be."- Julia Butterfly Hill, The Legacy of Luna.
Yesterday was a perfect day to lace up the hiking boots and grab your day pack. The sky was clear and the temperature had a nice chill to it. You know the feeling when it is cool enough to awaken your senses and make you feel alive? It looks as though today is going to be a repeat of yesterdays weather. We have been so lucky this spring. It makes me wonder if we are going to get a big snow like they did in 1993. If memory serves me, the winter and spring were mild ones like we are experiencing now.
