I have crossed the Range of Light, surely the brightest and best of all the Lord has built; and rejoicing in its glory, I gladly, gratefully, hopefully pray I may see it again.

We continue our study on mountain glacial landforms with the arête.
An arête is formed by two glaciers scouring away rock on two sides of a mountain. The result is a thin ridge of rock which separates two U-Shaped valleys. Weathering further erodes the rock thus shaping and sharpening the feature. Arêtes can also be formed when two cirques erode.
This is my first “Sunday Reflections” and it is only fitting that my first quote comes from an individual that has inspired my heart and my love of nature. As an avid supporter of the National Park Service it understandable that John Muir would be that champion to all who desire to connect with the natural world. We all need the beauty of nature to heal our hearts and souls and for this reason this is one of my favorite quotes. Unfortunately I’ve never been to Yosemite so his beloved Sierra Nevada’s will have to do.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. ~~ John Muir
