Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

Love the quote for today.

It's about getting out there and making things happen. Creating a new ending!

The cloud formations are breathtaking, unbelievable views.

What an awesome place to be able to run.

Whats up girl?

Love the pics. Looks like a fun adventure. When are you gonna be in L.A. next? We need to hook up for a run sometime. I am down there at least a week a month.

Dear Diva Catra... heart shaped rocks are a special find. I've still got mine from the Sunset Cliffs... circa 1978 or so. I hope all is well with you and those you love. 56 working days until retirement... can't wait. I hope you are catching the PBS special on the National Parks... awesome stuff... and still wearing your Ombrelle... "Sunscreen Steve"...
