French Friday: Bonne Année! Happy New Year!

J’avais prévu un billet différent, mais comme je ne fais plus de résolutions de début d’année depuis quelque temps, je me suis autorisée un changement de dernière minute.

Je dédie cette galerie de beauté naturelle à ceux et celles qui ont souffert et souffrent encore des conséquences des ouragans et incendies de 2017, principalement au Texas, en Floride, à Puerto Rico, et en Californie, à ceux et celles qui vivent un début d’hiver très difficile sur la côte est des États Unis, particulièrement en Nouvelle Angleterre, toujours proche de mon cœur.

Malgré les nombreux challenges qu’a présenté 2017, la beauté a gagné sur l’adversité.

Elle gagnera encore en 2018.

I had planned a different post, but since I stopped making New Year’s resolutions a while ago, I went with a last minute change.

I dedicate this series of natural beauty to anyone who has lived through the devastating hurricanes and fires of 2017, principally in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and California, to anyone currently affected by the harsh winter conditions along the East coast, particularly in New England, always tucked close to my heart.

 

Despite the numerous challenges during 2017, beauty won over adversity.

It will again in 2018.

    You make my heart sing with your positive attitude and all your photos of natural beauty.

  5. Merci Evelyne, ce matin, tes photos me touchent et je suis absolument d’accord avec toi, c’est dans cette beauté de la nature qu’on trouvera la clé. Ma carte pour toi est partie et je t’embrasse

  6. Thank you. I needed that.

    • I’ve been thinking of you and really hope that you aren’t to cold now. Looks like it will warm up next week on the entire East Coast. Meanwhile I’m glad these photos can lift your mood. See you soon on your blog. 💐

  7. Que ce nouveau millésime t’octroie santé, bonheurs et amour, chère Evelyne!

  8. A lovely set of photos, Evelyne— and a lovely thought! Thank you. I was particularly moved by Half Dome since I have backpacked by it numerous times! And am contemplating doing so again this year. –Curt

    • Thank you, Curt. I’m so lucky that I got the chance to do Half Dome several times too, even once under the moon light, and all before they implemented the permit. It’s not as spontaneous now and I’m not even sure how it works in case of bad weather. But this is for sure an amazing hike and each time is different. The best time for me remains late spring, especially if the winter has been rainy so the falls are at their fullest. Early fall is great too, as it feels like a last season treat before many trails close for the winter.
