    You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. ..Rene Daumal

    My last hike in the park for 2006 was with Ballpark Frank, Roadie, Gary M, Tamsen, Brutus, Tilley, and Auwingwalker. It was an amazing jaunt over the divide between Swan Lake Flats and Gardners Hole. I stood overlooking Swan Lake Flats trying to soak in all the scenery, trying to burn it into my memory so that I could recall it anytime during the coming winter. It was an awesome hike. A great way for me to finish the 2006 hiking season.
