"For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. "- Martin Luther
The sound of thunder threatened us all day. The rain held off until after sunset. It was a bit chilly on the mountain, but I still found time to go for a little walk in the woods. It is great to see the Frasier fur saplings do so well. I could tell a difference in some of my favorite hiking areas. The trees seem to be a tad bit thicker. This is a great sign. I love returning to the mountain each spring to see what change is happening in the forest.
