One Response to Cold Mountain Pool on Hot Day

  1. Its a great image Lloyd and it looks like a beautiful spot.
    It brings back memories for me of walking in Scotland with my cousin, on a quiet path high on a wooded hillside we found a stream and a deep pool among pine trees, being young and somewhat impulsive we threw ourselves in. Cold was an understatement! but it was great fun. Its one of those fond memories that has stuck with me over the years.
    I hope the mountain spirits and the fresh energy there continues to treat you well.
