Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

Gorgeous shot from Scott Randall’s experience.

One of the most extraordinary experiences of my life was spending time with the mountain Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda.  The entire process of starting early in the morning, hiking to their habitat in the mountains, fighting our way through the dense vegetation, and then being with these serene animals was amazing.  I can’t adequately describe the feeling of catching our first glimpse of the gorillas and then sitting feet away from them as they went about their daily routine.  There was something just incredibly peaceful about them and a feeling that we were sharing the morning with a friend or relative – at their place.  It was at once both quiet and exhilarating – a moment of a lifetime. Pure.

Love’s love.

I immediately thought of our visit with the mountain gorillas in Rwanda when I saw this week’s challenge, “Serenity.”  Serene is the first word that always comes to mind when I think of that visit to these incredible and gentle animals.  It was a rare privilege indeed to be able to spend an hour with this family as they went about their normal routine….

Serene moment with mom... Serene moment with mom…
