the Alps

We didn’t bring hiking boots. But proper gear never stopped us from adventuring in the past so why should it stop us today? Driving along the winding back roads we parked our car at the head of a trail that led through a small wooded area. The four of us wandered slowly, enjoying a small effortless hike. What we didn’t expect to find was, beyond the woods, a grassy area that led to a road farther up. We stepped into that clearing, unaided by a pathway. Partway up we turned around to see the most breathtaking view one could ever imagine. Sitting down, chewing on a stem of grass, we breathed it all in like we were in some soothing mystical magical land. Maybe heaven will be like this, we thought.
