Climbing up through the trees.

“It’s not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Picture taken on a wonderful hike through the Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. I wish I’d counted the number of steps up and down. I could have entered for the Guinness Book of Records! A really great work out for the leg muscles.

  1. It was a good choice to go B&W for this photo. I bet you were treated to some spectacular sight at the end of that work out. The stairwell wouldn’t be there if there wasn’t a payoff.

  2. รจ vero la foresta ha qualcosa di veramente unico da donarci ( scalini a parte ha ha)

    It is true the forest has something really unique to offer (steps aside ha ha)

  4. I bet you fair skipped up those steps Sylvia ๐Ÿ˜‰ coming down now that’s the hard bit … Oh how the knees can suffer !
    Your B&W shot gives real emphasis on that steep climb .

  5. Trees have a healing and calming properties. They help us find ourselves and be renewed body, mind, heart and soul. Beautiful! Wishing you and your family all the best blessings of the holidays.

  6. Robert L Stevenson had such a wonderful way with words, and of course he was an Edinburgh boy! I was brought up on his writing, and it’s always wonderful to see it shared outside of Scotland.
    Trees and woodlands are, as you know, one of my favorite landscapes, and very abundant here in Scotland ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I very much relate to your chosen quote. Visiting the redwood forest was something akin to a religious experience for me. It was indescribable.
    Looks like it’s snowing in Costa Rica! ๐Ÿ˜€
