Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy.
~ Hamlin Garland, McClure's, February 1899.

an infinitude of hope,
a canvas of glory
all possibilities mine.
