All Alone

All Alone by Luna McCarthy

Just outside of Zunil, on the road to Fuentes Georginas, you see so much beautiful countryside; plots of land dotted with various crops, the slopes of the massive hills, the fog rolling over the mountains, it is all so overwhelmingly stunning. On one of my last trips to that area, I was struck by the lush density of the trees, the foliage and all the varying shades of green. As we drove along, my mind was in a daze as I soaked in all the beauty, but was soon pleasantly jolted awake when I saw this rock. This enormous ROCK. Just “there”. All alone, surrounded by crops and other rocks, but the solitude of the rock struck me as unbelievably beautiful.
