Vision Quest II | Walk Your Talk
This is the second stage of your vision quest journey – Walk Your Talk – keep going – birth that new vision for your own life! It may seem your path leads to a dead-end wall and you are going nowhere – but keep hope for there is actually a hidden path turning left, and you will continue on and up through gradually widening paths, arriving finally at the end of your journey, the scenic top of the canyon.
You emerge into a steep-narrow walled canyon, a “birth canal” only large enough for one person to squeeze through and seeming to end at a blank wall. It’s here you start to birth your vision and determine to walk your talk. And just when it seems this road goes nowhere, and ends at a blank wall…an exit route appears to the left, and you can go on, climbing upwards along a single path varying between steep and gentle, and gradually widening along a rocky ascent that in more recent times acquired a wooden staircase.
This canyon is located at a vision quest site that very few hikers recognize. It is part of the Rim Rock Trail, Shawnee National Forest, Southern Illinois. Let’s take a journey to see what the nature realm has created.
