I was lucky enough to be able to leave life behind for a little while after the passing of my grandfather. We drove through the most beautiful sites, trekked the woods with moose and pika, paddled the prettiest of waters, downhill biked the dense aspens, explored canyons that made us feel like we were on a journey only possible in our dreams, and we were able to spend time reflecting, crying, and sharing stories of a man who held my heart so tightly.
I wanted to stay there forever. Watching the light change with the hours. Letting it spill across my face. Tracing each line with my finger tip. Laying back on red dirt. Letting it heal all that's been broken.


Can you even believe that this is the place we were given to live? All of us? On this beautiful beautiful planet... what an amazing place to exist.
