wHoleHeartedly ~ Five Minute Friday #fmf ~ { A to Z Blogging Challenge }

Brought to you by  the letter << H >>  in  the A to Z Blogging Challenge
and the Five Minute Friday writing prompt~~ 

wHolehearted thoughts

            Dipping our feet in an icy alpine creek after a long arduous climb.  And down, we still must traverse. Brief respite by a hidden glacial waterfall.....  we must be the first, ever to have found this slice of heaven on Earth. We must.
             From sea to shining sea, the sites, the magnificence...we've  a sense of can-we-really-be-here about the whole adventure.

 Snapping picture after picture. Until our memory card is filled. Filled with smiling faces, natural beauty, pine trees, frigid streams, sun dappled valleys......Holding and immortalizing the hikes, the sites, the signs, the history, the starts, the stops.

I'm happy to join the tribe of FMF writers at Kate's.

And some random memories I was talking about~~~`
There's just so much more to say....
 but you know, five minutes!

I'm writing off a picture/s or a thought/s for the month.....
Now real "theme," just a stream of consciousness.
