A hike in the park

I am one of the lucky ones that gets the day off today for Martin Luther King day.  Rather than sit at home, we headed out for a short hike at a nearby State Park.  It was a beautiful morning.  In fact, it was very warm out. I got a few photos where the sunlight was right were I needed it.

Ironically, after we left the park it started to cloud up and we have a slight chance of rain overnight.  A photo below shows the grasses growing from all the rain we’ve had this winter.  The green is just beautiful.

I’m including a few MLK Jr. quotes to inspire us all as we head into the new week.


If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
Martin Luther King, Jr.


Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.



Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
Martin Luther King, Jr.


So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.
– Martin Luther King Jr.


We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Martin Luther King, Jr.


I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
