Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #70 – December 22, 2015



No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied—it speaks in silence to the very core of your being. There are some that love not to listen but the disciples are drawn to the high altar with magnetic certainty, knowing that a great Presence hovers over the ranges.

—ANSEL ADAMS, US Photographer, 1902–84
