A gorgeous, lazy summer day in Trout Lake. We got on our bikes to burn off the waffles. But, instead of our normal 11-mile route over the rivers and around the farms, we detoured to the he Mt. Adams Zen Buddhist Abbey.
As we were looking around, the Rev. Kozen Sampson greeted us, welcomed us, and encouraged us to explore the ever-improving grounds. He's done a wonderful job of building beautiful spaces and landscaping.
