Nature helped Silence My Worried Heart

Trails of any kind beacon me to follow  their path. On this day, a partial unseen trail dared me to come. I accepted the challenge knowing I would have to be agile to get to the waterfalls. It was a time in my life that I needed nature to help me breath.

Un prepared for the terrain, my daughter and I carefully  began our decent in our sandals. We slid, jumped from boulders and walked on uneven rocky grown, until we arrive where my daughter stood.

This piece of paradise is called, “Boiling Pots of Wailuku” in Hilo, Hawaii. The beauty and magic of this place hushed away the worried voices which wouldn’t leave me be.








Peace found me, calmed my mind and heart. I sat beside my girl, worried free. God reminded me that He is not only watching over us, but also taking care of our needs. Having the load taken from me, was well worth the difficult path back up.

In spite of
Rising fog
Cloudy sky
Tiny Snowflakes
The Mountain range
Peeked across the sky
While the half-moon 
Shined like a Morning star


Winsome Beauty


Far Yet Close


The mountains scale down the size of the cabins and pin point our next stop.

My first snow excursion in Alaska. A taste of winter delight. If only I had brought some wine, it would have been the cherry on a perfect day.

A Hiker’s Dream in Alaska

Girdwood Alaska

A mountain top view at the Moose Meadow Park, in Girdwood, Alaska is an exhilarating experience. To stand at the base of this majestic mountain range will itch one’s feet to go  and explore the trails in the woods.




This small town is cuddled among outdoor beauty which changes all year round. Come at your favorite time, wether be summer, spring, winter or fall, there will be something to do for all.

Do make sure to bring proper attire for the time of year. Check the weather and plan accordingly, not only for clothing but safety and for what animals may be around.


Spending the night is best in the late fall and winter, in my opinion. For the fall days are filled with magical glittering leaves when the sun shines. Then during the night, the sky lights up with electrifying auroras dancing to a silent melodious tune. Both delight the soul, especially when the sky’s are partially or totally clear.


One can stay in the Alyeska Hotel. From this resort, it’s easy hike to the Moose Meadow Park, ride the tram to eat and sightsee, fish at near by streams or ski the Alyeska Mountain. If you rather have a more home like stay, there are B&B’s and vacation homes one can rent.

Up in those mountain are glaciers and the only way I could see them was from where I stood, unless I took a helicopter or hiking tour.

As for hiking to the top, that would take time, planning and careful watch, for brown and black bears roam wild in Alaska’s starting in spring to fall. Oh and I better not forget to warn you about moosie moosies. They can attack at any time of the year. Hide behind a tree if yo see a moose. But be on high alert in the summer when young calfs are around, same goes for those cute, fluffy looking bear cubs.

Bring your bells and whistles when you come, for they are not only for Christmas time. But, to keep you and your dear ones safe and alive, all year round. Cause one never knows if a bear forgot to wait for nature’s alarm and woke up too early and then be found.
