Excerpt from Vacation on the Trail: Personal Experiences in the Higher Mountain Trails With Complete Directions for the Outfitting of Inexpensive Expeditions Frankly the following pages are written in the hope Of interesting the thousands Of men and women who go summering every year in search of that which will te lieve from the strain Of Office, study, or classroom and send them back refreshed for the labors of another year. The aim is to point out a more excellent way than has yet been discovered by the vast majority who perforce follow the crowd to the popular resort or at best join an excursion and do half a continent in thirty days. What the worn-out teacher, clerk, or executive needs is not rest but change; not inactivity which dulls the physical powers but action which stimulates; not mental excitement, Of which he has had too much, but simple surroundings under his personal control. He needs some thing that will set his idle body at work and stir up his sluggish processes, especially those Of elimination; and yet that something must be so filled with daily details as effectually to prevent the mind from slipping back into its Old ruts to go wool-gathering after the deep things Of life. In short, the man or woman seeking recuperation needs to reverse the daily grind and live a life Of active, though not exhaustive, physical existence with enough Of variety to keep the mind interested but not really em ployed. SO shall the tired vacationist go back to his work te-created and virtually a new man in body, mind, and spirit.
