I’m a big fan of the cliche, “stop and smell the roses” and I pride myself on not losing sight of those metaphorical roses as I move through my day. I like it even more, particularly when I’m in a hurry, when there are real roses to actually stop and smell.
Alas, Camel’s Hump offered none in the literal sense. It did, however, provide me two opportunities to listen to a waterfall. And I jumped at them both.
