Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

As for many of us, nature is where I find the most peace.  I took this picture from Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation several years ago when my son and I went up for a picnic before school started that year.  I visit the Reservation a few times a year, but try to go as often as I can.  You can drive up to the top from April through November (or before the first snowfall), but hiking up is a good trek as well.

It’s not just the river and mountain views that sooth me, but the bucolic scene spread out before me lends a peaceful sense of order and rhythm, and even if I’m off-kilter, I usually feel harmonious, or universally connected, on sunny, quiet days such as the one depicted here.

    1. Thanks, Brenda! It’s been a strange week. I think the grey, winter weather is adding to it all as well, so having a juxtaposition of somewhere lovely is nice.

    1. Yes! I love it so much up there. If I’m stressed or whatever, I always leave feeling calmer and happier. I know I could hike up during the off-season, and I’m sure it would be beautiful, but I’m not as attracted to it in the winter as I am the other seasons. Maybe I can find an adventurous friend to hike up with me and just see what it’s like this time of year – maybe it will be more soul-balm than I know!
