Last summer, my son and I backpacked fifty miles of the Wonderland Trail. The Wonderland is a spectacular trail that circumnavigates the base of Mt Rainier. Over its ninety-three miles, the trail rises over 22,000 feet, and travels through lowland old growth forests to subalpine meadows ablaze with wildflowers. It was especially meaningful for me to see the many faces of Rainier because my son climbed to the summit of the mountain two years earlier.
The beauty I saw on the Wonderland elicited thoughts about growth, life and community that I shared in a series of Facebook posts.
Over my next few blogs, I will revisit those images and thoughts in a series I call “Wisdom from Wonderland.” Hope you like it!
