Armchair of Golden Dreams

Sometimes I just sit back
In my armchair of golden dreams
To take in all the splendour
The view from there is wonderful

To a practitioner of Tendai
Everything is wonderful

Armchair, Wedge and Golden Dreams
On the River of Golden Dreams
British Columbia, Canada

Taken Yesterday, 2016

The group of three mountains on the left are known as Armchair. On the far night is Wedge Mountain, the tallest in the Garibaldi Range at 2,982 meters (9,488 feet). Running below it all is the River of Golden Dreams.

You might recognize this bit of river… I took the feature photo for Winter Dreams from just about the same spot a couple days ago, in a snow storm.
