The main thing was, I didn't want to allow my fears to govern my life. I wanted to be led more by admiring, even hopefully by understanding, the world rather than by the anguishes of internal imaginings. --Jane Wodening

Pilgrimage Up Longs Peak

Pilgrimage Up Longs Peak

Jun 19, 2023-- "For as long as I can remember, I begged my father to take me back to Colorado to climb a mountain. Growing up in Tennessee, this dream was delayed many times, until only last year when my father (Jane's youngest son, Rarc) and I made the journey. Just before the trip, I came across this particular story printed on its own by type-writer. The story was both an inspiration and grounding force for me as I read it aloud with my father the night before our own Pilgrimage Up Long's Peak. It sang of life, of humanity, of fear and bravery (or fearlessness?), and of the deep and unfathomable power of the Rocky Mountains. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did." Desirae Brackhage is the granddaughter of the author/artist/hermit Jane Wodening. Read the gripping story she alludes to, here.
