And Nature, the old nurse, took
The Child upon her knee,
Saying: ‘Here is a story -book
Thy Father has written for thee.’
‘Come, wander with me’, she said,
‘Into regions yet untrod;
And read what is still unread
In the manuscripts of God.’
Longfellow The Fiftieth Birthday of Agassiz
I came across these words recently on the first page of a book I am reading and they immediately reminded me of the Bhorgiri trek we took a few years ago. It was one of my first experiences of walking out in Nature and being the monsoon the experience was fantastic. One that I have craved for again and again. To feel free and to experience Nature as it is meant to be.
Here are a few images from that wonderful outing.
I did identify some trees and herbs, but the lasting impression was of the green countryside… Raw. Rejuvenated. Glorious.
I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove blog hop. Do head over to see some fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in.

Lovely pictures, especially the ones with mist. Actually, my favorite was the first, the bare tree.

That first shot is out if the world. Brilliant! I have heard Maharashtra is heaven in monsoons. VT and I want to go on trip that side during monsoons. One day maybe. Thanks for joining, Archana! See you tomorrow:)
