Squirrels hurry about, climbing trees to ring bell towers and leafy plants are growing everywhere, even through little cracks in the rock. If you put your palm to the water you can feel the grip of a snowdrift, which means it is far too cold for swimming or dipping your feet in. Sometimes the most beautiful of lakes are the ones you cannot touch. When they are this close to the mountains, all you can do is look out and try to discover if it is the lake’s heartbeat you hear or your own.
I wore this outfit because it is comfortable for hiking in, but also because it reminds me of how people used to dress a long time ago.
