‘Do not remain bewildered and skeptical when you hear the words Mountains flow; but study these words with buddha ancestors. When you take up one view, you see mountains flowing, and when you take up another view, mountains are not flowing.’ (Mountains and Rivers Sutra)

I would add, do not forget to let go of each view after you have taken it up.

    1. I started at China Camp and went across to the top of the Black Cone Trail, but not all the way to Big Sur. Luckily today I am wearing the t-shirt I was given by the trail crew which has a map on it, otherwise I would not be sure of the answer!
