My parents made it to Denali, but they never saw the mountain… that and the Galapagos Island were two of Dad’s great regrets. The privilege of Denali, and oh, we saw it and saw it and saw it was magnified somehow by knowing we completed a journey for them.
It’s a gorgeous Mountain. And the terrain is fascinating. Once again, Nature offers us a different glimpse of her power and Beauty. There is great Peace in this land that cannot be disturbed by the humans. A geologist friend says: Mother Earth bats last. In this place, you understand, whatever we do, she will triumph. There are many sweet beings whose existence we threaten, but the powerful Earth will prevail. It’s a sobering thought.
