Rainbow Mountain is located in Madison, Alabama, and has several different hiking trails for visitors to explore. The trails are steep, rocky, and narrow at times. However; the scenery is exquisite.
While I was exploring Rainbow Mountain, I thought about a quote by Vincent van Gogh:
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
Reading the book, What’s the Difference by Marc Tyler Nobleman, was really fun. The title and cover page do a good job at explaining the purpose of the book.
Here are a few examples:
- Reptiles vs Amphibians – Reptiles have lungs and they can’t breathe through their skin. Amphibians can absorb oxygen through their skin and they may or may not have lungs.
- Fruit vs Vegetable – Fruit is the ripened ovary of a flowering plant. Vegetables are any other edible parts of the plant.
- Morality vs Ethics – Morals are what we believe regarding appropriate behavior. Ethics is the formal study of morality.
I found a stink bug on the window screen today. Stink bugs have glands that excrete a foul smelling liquid, which is used as a defense mechanism against predators.
When it comes to stink bugs, I use a live and let live type policy. I have no desire to experience that horrible smell.
