dreams and visions

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
--James Allen

Above is a photo of Rocky Fork, which is also the name of the gigantic tract of land that was recently purchased by The Conservation Fund and the federal goverment. This was a dream come true for those who believe we owe it to future generations to preserve this rugged and beautiful tract of land. Click here for an excellent article that describes the recent purchase. Click here to read the news release from The Conservation Fund (complete with map of Rocky Fork). I noticed on the map that there is a proposal to relocate a section of the AT into Rocky Fork.
