07/03/2019 - En route to climb Mt. Olympus, I was quite excited to drop in here. While the team took a break at about 2.5 miles, I hastened up the trail. The GPS coordinates are fairly accurate. You will see a tree with 2 different roots. Walk through the hole. There are a couple different options for trails that have been traveled by now, so just make your way back there. On my part, as I excitedly used Gaia to locate the exact spot, I noted the irony of checking my phone to find this sacred place of solitude. I put the phone away; it was not necessary anyway. Take some moments to drink in the silence.
