I was suprised to get home from my hike and find so many pictures on my phone. I don't remember taking that many! I ambled through the forest for hours and hours, often cutting away from the trail to chill with my thoughts next to the raging waters in the shadiest corners of the gorge, with the trees and the ferns and the mossy rocks. Even though I haven't been back there in way, way too long, I was easily remembering hidden secret places with a fierce familiarity.
I cannot believe how long it has been since I went home.
