This weekend, while camping at the Wenatchee Confluence State Park, I noticed some interesting rock formations high above the city. I focused on them wondering if there might be some hiking trails up there. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture to show you the view from the campgrounds; later the mountain was enshrouded by rain clouds. This is where you will use your imagination!
Saturday morning we bicycled from the state park to Pybus Market for the sheer joy of it. A beehive of activity greeted us. Booths were set up and choirs were singing amongst the cheese and apple cider. The Iris Society had a whole array of bearded iris staged in pvc pipe ‘vases’ and asked the public to vote for their favorite. I lingered among the iris for some time bemoaning the fact I did not bring my camera.
This iris from a natural setting will have to fill the picture spot here.
We wandered outside the market, and of course, that rocky formation peered down at me. After lunch, purchased from one of the venders, I sauntered back inside to complete the circuit of the booths. To my surprise, there was a booth with a map of the Wenatchee Foothills Trails. When I inquired about the rock formation, the young woman from the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust pulled me over to a window and pointed up to the exact rocks I had been curious about. She offered directions on how to drive to the trailhead. Oh yay!
Possibilities abound!! Since we are dealing with process, here are my steps:
- First, Notice the rock formation.
- Second, Focus on them and the possibility they might be accessed by a trail.
- Third, almost effortlessly, find yourself in the right place at the right time to learn that possibility could become reality.
- Fourth, after supper we take a 20 minute drive and climb Saddle Rock.
- Interestingly, we did not climb between the saddles but to the formation next to them.
From there, we looked down on what we had looked up at before! Sometimes reality is better than possibility.
The puddle at the very top. Who would guess in dry Wenatchee there would be a puddle at the very top of the mountain? To the right we could look across to the saddle which I apparently did take a picture of but discarded before I got the idea for this post. You will have to trust me!
Oh, and I found a photo op with a lone tree up there–albeit a dead one–which is why I headed for this promontory rather than in between the saddle.
Yesterday I encouraged you to make declarations over your mind as in
Mind! Awaken to Possibility!
Pushing the envelope on possibility may seem difficult but have you ever noticed that when you begin to focus on something, like I did on this rocky formation, suddenly you see it repeatedly and eventually the information comes to you with very little effort?
What if possibility became your focus for the next 30 days?
Would it not show up at your front door ringing the door bell?
Try it for 30 days. Be a possibility pursuer! Now put your hands on either side of your dome piece, as my son-in-law calls it, and and repeat after me:
Mind! Awaken to Possibility!
From this one you can see the state park where we camped. It is the green wedge up near the widest point in the Columbia River. Keep your mind open to possibility. You never can tell what vantage point it may lead you to conquer!
