The mountains are singing

News radio is abuzz about high water in Yosemite Valley from the snowmelt above. We’ve had a bumper snow year and the mountains are singing. Water and spray are everywhere below the snowline, watering fresh new vegetation.

I’ve been in these mountains in spring–everywhere I go I can hear running water–dripping, gurgling, rushing, roaring. It forms a grand symphony to soothe the soul and to inspire.

There’s a hymn: This is my father’s world; and to my listening ears all nature sings and ’round me rings the music of the spheres.” Exactly!


About David McCoard

After earning my MS in geology I've done various things including managing the ski touring program at a small lodge in the Sierra. In 2010 I retired from Contra Costa College in California. I've always been fascinated by the mountains and nature and have spent countless days hiking, backpacking, climbing and skiing in the Sierra. The spiritual insights I've learned there have set the course for my life. Now I have time to share them and strike up a conversation.
