“It’s humbleness and seclusion offered peace and tranquility. A privileged time to walk on hallowed ground. Walking on ancient soil among the long grasses and wildflowers a connection to the earth. Sacred, beautiful, transcendent.”
– Kerri Parkes
There are certain places on Earth that bring a feeling of peace, awe and wonder. Almost sacred. I have been lucky enough to set foot on such a place and that place is called –
Wild and untamed, where beauty abounds. Lush meadows and wildflowers invite you to delight in its pleasure.
A majestic eagle in full flight draws your eye skyward to the snow-capped peaks and glaciers that drape down the mountain sides like a luxurious white blanket.
Bears rule in this domain, with a banquet of sedges, salmon filled rivers and beach side clams to feast upon. Whilst wolves howl at a distant moon, their mystery and majesty is haunting.
Whilst offshore within the confines of the food rich bay, Puffins, Sea Otters and Whales feast on the oceans bounty.
I felt small and insignificant as I looked before me. The enormity of this beauty, mystery and magic that engulfed me was over whelming.
I felt brand new, as the Alaskan mountain air mixed with gentle ocean breeze cleansed my mind and body from the clutter of life among civilisation.
How privileged and honoured I was to be among the wild places, where life is nothing short of magical.
When I set foot at Hallo Bay, I knew immediately that I was walking on Hallowed Ground.
