Exploring Georgia: Borjomi, Uplistsikhe,Mtskheta

“What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more,

to follow grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks….” 

 

Helen Keller

The Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park is a treasure trove of nature’s bounty. Astoundingly beautiful in this month as the foliage changes color, the coniferous park is also famous for its mineral water from springs in the Borjomi Gorge. 

 

 
I was particularly mesmerised by the charms of the autumn season as various shades of red, yellow, orange and brown could be appreciated here
We took a cable car ride to the top and wandered through the dense forests.

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.  Kahlil Gibran

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes  e.e. cummings

Go out, go out I beg of you
And taste the beauty of the wild.
Behold the miracle of the earth
With all the wonder of a child.  Edna Jaques

 

 

I am in love with this world . . . I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings.  John Burroughs
