At Peace on the Hogback
I hiked the Dakota Ridge hogback trail this afternoon. The photograph captures the view before me when I stopped at the halfway point to sit on a boulder and sip some water. I was weary but not to the point of inattention (by which I mean that stupefied state I often fall into when exhausted), and I was in a peaceful mood that allowed me to happily gaze at the slanting layers of rock without troubling myself with questions about geological history.
