"All the rocks seem talkative . . . They are dear friends, and have warm blood gushing through their granite flesh, and I love them with a love intensified by long and close companionship."
The Contemplative John Muir
What a place to enjoy morning coffee! My backpacker's stove heats water in about 3 minutes. Then I add a packet of Starbuck's freeze-dried coffee and sit back and have a wonderful conversation with the snowy mountain, the osprey and various waterbirds frequenting the lake, the elegant spruces and firs, the new-made morning air!
