There’s a lot of talk about up north. It’s the place everyone seems to want to escape the pressures and frantic pace of everyday life. But where is up north? For up north is not so much a location as it is a state of mind. So, how do you know when you’ve arrived up north? When you feel the cares of the world begin to slip away. When you feel yourself breathing a little deeper because the air seems purer somehow. When you notice the sky is bluer, the trees are taller, and the people smile a lot. Then you know you’re up north.
