Camouflage

While out for a hike with my lovely photographer friend, we had gone across the train tracks and were scrambling down to the river, when we saw a man, alone, working at gutting some fish (we think?). He was by some Pondarosas close to shore, and I remember we were a little leary, as, all …

It was to awesome to finally head outdoors for even a small hike.  The clouds rolled in last night and the sound of rain on my roof made me so happy. I love September; the change in weather,  apple pies galore and that cozy feel of fall. But it’s not just that, this was my …

Freedom in Wandering

I take a deep breath and let in the crisp morning air.  It smells like wet earth, sagebrush and freedom. Belle, my trusty sidekick, is happily sniffing too, possibly catching the scent of deer or coyotes.The surrounding wilderness on a hike is always refreshing and healing for me.  It reminds me that real beauty is …
