Allured to the Vista Point...

Joshua Tree National Park

Not content with the view from below,
I snapped a picture and made the ascent.

The trek long.
The path always upward.

The view?


Ample reward
for the allured.

(A truism I enjoy is this, "Show me someone who is bored, and I'll show you someone who lacks meaningful challenges.")

These days I've got my challenges: some imposed, some chosen. I'll endure the imposed ones, but I aim to enjoy the chosen ones. Some paths are chosen for you, some you get to chose. Regardless, the path is generally upwards with occasional vista points, and at the end... triumph.

Keep climbing!

(I wrote Allured last Friday in response to a photo over here. The picture on this post was of rock climber at Joshua Tree.)
