The Hanging Garden

One could spend an entire lifetime exploring this amazing place, year over year and season over season. This past visit, it being now my thirtieth, I experienced one of those life-altering moments. If you have ever experienced the birth of a newborn of any kind then you know what I mean. Miracles exist. Places that invoke miracles exist. I am a better person because of them.
