Going to the mountains is going home.
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow
into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness
into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn

climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
