I took a friend to hike with me in this park last summer; there was so much to look at, every corner would reveal some new wonder... as we approached this vantage point he stopped in his tracks, and exclaimed: "it's like an Art Gallery up here..!"
Now, I don't know what this might be saying about me, but when I make return trips to the scenic places I like, I find myself shifting my attention away from the spectacular scenery, in order to take in the reactions of fellow visitors to the spectacular scenery. Seeing them discover the beauty surrounding us has become as exciting than seeing it again for myself.
Even within the beauty of nature, I still find it more rewarding to people watch... I guess you can take the boy out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the boy.
