Whilst visiting the Trossachs I came across a sign with this quote on it which summarised our feelings towards the our outdoor experiences.
All the wild world is beautiful, and it matters but little where we go, to highlands or lowlands, woods or plains, on the sea or land or down among the crystals of waves or high in a balloon in the sky; through all the climates, hot or cold, storms and calms, everywhere and always we are in God’s eternal beauty and love. So universally true is this, the spot where we chance to be always seems the best
John Muir 1890
We would be interested to know the origins of this quote.
