Today marks the place in space and time when the northern hemisphere of our twirling sphere is the closest to the sun. Thus we have the longest day of the year and the first official day of summer. Compliments of Juniper, the day began with a golden sunrise!
Shortly there after I laced up my running shoes and celebrated the day on one of my favorite trail runs. It's a high country wilderness tour, that tops out on San Jacinto Peak at 10,834'.
I enjoyed a few minutes quietly breathing the crisp, clean and slightly thinner air before going down.
Whether you surf, sip, run, walk or dance, do something today to salute the sun and celebrate the first day of summer. And keep these words with you this season: never stop exploring, because "you can sleep enough in your own bed, or at least in your grave."
