The Tundra Communities Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park is over 12,000 feet high – a humbling experience to walk with your camera gear.  However, the unusual rock formations (including the Mushroom Rocks above) on the alpine tundra landscape have always reminded me of qualities of character that support resilience, courage and faith.  Each time I experience this tundra area, I also experience hope for humanity.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.

Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”  ~~ Helen Keller
