     "Mountain pilgrimages on sacred peaks are the best of practices."
               - 8th century Buddhist text


     "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will
      flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees."
               - John Muir

     "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is
      no path and leave a trail."

               - Ralph Waldo Emerson


  This website exists solely for enjoyment and education, and began with several purposes: to entertain and inspire with tales of an active life in the great outdoors; to help you achieve your health and fitness goals; and to provide information on the benefits of chiropractic care, natural diet and lifestyle. Those who fully explore it from end to end will find many hidden gems within.   Note: "Philosophy" is a separate website all of its own, unconnected with this chiropractic practice, for serious seekers after truth.



  "When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest,
   strength cannot be executed, wealth is useless, and reason is powerless."
     - Herophilus, c. 300 B.C.


   The best nutrition, the elimination of stress and toxins, and the finest medical care etc., can only take one so far. Healthwise, movement is an essential part of life.The body was designed to be active and regular physical activity is a key to the success of any health plan.


  As example is better than precept, and an ounce of practise worth more than tons of theory, you will find here stories of my running and hiking adventures, the result of a personal fitness renaissance at the age of forty-nine, with detailed information so you can do them, too, if you so desire. I have simply come to love the mountains, the trails, and the bike paths, and observe with great interest the beneficial changes exploring them produces in body, mind, and spirit.


  "Into the mountains, not over the hill" is the common theme of these articles. "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing." Too often we limit ourselves and do not reach our full potential. I have found find joy and inspiration through going beyond presumed limitations in majestic natural settings, for physical and spiritual benefit, and highly recommend it to others.

   “The heavens declare the glory of God: The skies proclaim the work of his hands”
      - Psalm 19:1.
