“There is a delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm. The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
My first Father’s Day spent at Oconaluftee Village & Clingman’s Dome. While the baby is still in utero, my hope is that it will live out its days in the grandeurs of nature’s beauty.
