Peter taking in the beauty, the roar, and the mist
of Crabtree Falls in Yancey Co, NC
Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature—if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you—know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse.
--Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher
