Sidetracked

Have you ever been driving towards your destination and seen those signs that say scenic route, or one that announces a state park or lake or something? Yes, I have too. Most days I just keep going but sometimes my dear hubby and I will go see what that sign is pointing to. We followed one such sign and we found a mountain called Mount Scott in Oklahoma. We were rewarded with breath taking beauty that day and while we were looking out from the top of that mountain it got me to thinking . . .
