I am a big supporter of the “leave nothing but footprints” mentality of visiting the forests and spending time there. That said? I have to admit that finding this little colorful rock hidden along a trail through the wetlands early in the spring lent me a little extra glimmer of extra spirit to my soul.
You find these rocks in the parks here a lot lately. That little lift this one gave me is their purpose. You are encouraged to pick them up and take them with you when you find one. I chose to leave this one behind to lift another’s spirits just as it had my own.
