My family and I just returned from Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where we stayed in a cabin on a hill in the Ozark Mountains.
One morning, my daughter and I walked from our cabin to Blue Spring. It’s a round spring of very cold water that native American Indians believe has healing powers. Native Americans lived near the spring 10,000 years ago.
On our hike, we saw a graceful deer cross the road in front of us. We admired the pink and yellow and orange flowers along the walk to the spring. We sat on the bridge and gingerly placed our feet into the chilly spring water.
I was reminded of a John Muir quote that my friend Eva likes. “In every walk with nature one receives far more than (she) seeks,” Muir said.
