It Was The Journey That Counts Most


Our family vacation led us through a remote and rather uninteresting section of the country. Noticing a scenic-route sign, we sopped at a visitors’ station, hopeful for a change of scenery. Our son asked the young park ranger, “What will we see on the scenic route that we haven’t seen already?”

“What have you seen so far?” asked the ranger.

“Nothing!” our son replied.

The ranger answered, “Then you’ve seen most of it already.”

The grueling sing-along, crazy games, and stupidest jokes, we had so much fun inside the car and I can conclude that it’s not really the destination but the journey that counts.
