We explored a new area this afternoon, a path we had not taken before. We have thought to do so many times on previous visits, and today was the day to take the left fork instead of the right. We came across this very long bench, with a small platform in the middle so that little ones could sit more comfortably. There was a quote by John Muir on the back of the bench etched in the wood. It read:
"In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks."
More to come later.
