Mountain Top Experiences

"One climbs a mountain," writes Tim Robinson, "drawn instinctively by the magnetism of the highest point, as to a summit of personal awareness, awareness of oneself as a point in relation to as much of space as can be grasped within a maximal horizon. Thus the mountain top is one of the most sensitive places on earth. After reading ancient texts, one might add that perhaps mountains are among the most spiritual places on earth. There are endless references to mountains, hills and the miracles and events that occurred there in the Bible. Noah's Ark came to rest, Moses encountered the burning bush and Jesus went there to pray.Mountains reach toward the heavens. They are a "thin place" between heaven and earth. Their vastness and beauty are beyond measure. All the more impressive then when Paul says in the book of Corinthians "if I have the faith to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing."
Paraphrased from A Spiritual Field Guide by Bernard Brady and Mark Neuzil.

From Donna- a woman on the edge

I'm planning to do this - so is Sam. Thought you might be interested or know someone that would be. I thought it'd be fun to get a group together. I can supply some accomodations at my place in Spooner. (Room for tents too if farmhouse fills up). Spooner is about 30 minutes from start of the trek on Birkie trail. Trek is 21K (15 miles?). Registraion is $40 before 9/5 and includes food stops enroute, food at end and I think even a lovely t-shirt.
I told the backpacking crew that I'd schedule training hikes for interested folks..... (Probably William O'brien or Sunfish since terrain is similar to Birkie trail)
Interested? email
