Lucie and I went to the 4th of July Campground some weeks ago. After we parked we walked in circles trying to find the trail head. Other people were also looking for the trailhead. Soon we were walking with another couple searching for the way. Something sparked and this old guy remembered where the trailhead is located.
You may wonder why I am telling you this story. Well, I love telling stories. ? And this story reminds me of my connection with Mountain Cloud. As we walked past the marked trailhead, many “markers” started popping up. Familiar road forks, springs, trees, boulders, steep inclines were all there. My feet just kept going on and on.
Perhaps you can feel where I am going with this tale. Something draws me back to the trail called MCZC. Sometimes I lose my bearings and can’t see the trailhead. Perhaps it’s best to stay lost. However, there is always this feeling that eventually comes to me, I am Home.
