The primary purpose of this blog is to serve as an instrument of self-expression. It is
a place where I can share my photographs of the beautiful places I hike to. Because I am fascinated by the
potential of blogging as an agent for change, I will also occasionally share my thoughts on ideas which are
important to me, namely environmental protection, social justice, peace, human diversity, compassion towards animals, self-development,
and communication. Comments and dialogue are welcome and encouraged!
