Sustainable
Climbing hills or sliding down
'You are here' sign.

Is this you, Hum, putting your haiku in as a comment? I thought to read it again next to the pictures, but they don't come up when you hit "show original post." I'm guessing you meant for the post to be taken as a whole--the Yosemite site in photo, painting, and words sustainable. I wonder if "You are here" is sustainable, if we are not mountains?

Beautiful photo and painting. Humans and corporations only think they own a part of it. I believe the land belongs to itself. It generously shares with us and in a perfect world, we would be respectful in return. This post shows its beauty. Loved it.

I like to think that state and national parks are protected from interference regardless of the wealth hidden beneath them or growing on them. Sadly there are often persuasive arguments
for their use for profit.

A fine mix of image and word...the mistake is in thinking we own the world i suppose..

Such a question has been asked for a long time. But beauty needs not care.

We must all respect the natural territories I believe, as a whole...The beautiful image must remain for other generations to also paint!

This brings home the idea that it's sad to think we can really own nature. I love your sketch and your haiku. Thank you for this post.

Beautiful words and image

County or country? How indeed!! I totally agree. We are stewards of the land, but that implies a caring that doesn't necessitate ownership.

How true! This reminds me so much of Chief Seattle's wise words:
"Humans merely share the earth. We can only protect the land, not own it."

Agree, Nick. And it is great:
