Summer Vacation Photos (Old Faithful)

And to conclude my summer vacation photos, it seems fitting to end with Old Faithful. The video at the end is all the more special thanks to the considerate individuals who walked right in front of my camera, even though they could clearly see that I was taking video at the time (walking behind me or waiting for me to finish was out of the question - I guess either option somehow violated their religion or worldview).

No comments:

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
