It’s been a HOT MINUTE since i’ve posted here. My apologies. I’ve had lots of things swirling around lately that have put this tiny blog in the back of my mind. But i’m back, and I have two travel diaries to share with you!
I’m in a photo-taking season right now and it feels so great to be behind the lens again! So far, every weekend has taken me somewhere I wanted to snap a few photos and i’ve been collecting the little solo shots from here and there to compile into a bigger post.
This past weekend I retreated into nature with 40+ people for an annual winter youth retreat. Here we get together and hang out, have great meals, and learn about God and his purpose for our lives. And even though sleep is MINIMAL on these weekend, I always come back refreshed.
The other night D and I went to Point Pelee National Park for sunset. It was one of those sunny, autumn, days where the weather was too good to be true and we knew that if we didn’t seize the moment, it would be a long time before we could walk outside with only a jacket again.
There are very few times in my life where I decided getting up early to walk up sand dunes was a good idea. Actually, there are none but there’s a first time for everything.
This was the longest day of driving. We set out from Aspen close to 9 am and started off towards the main part of the day, driving the Kebler Pass. I had no expectations or idea as to what the ride would be like, but turn by turn new views emerged and I began understanding why this drive was such a popular one.
When you get to Denver the first thing you may notice is how your head feels light, like you’re flying in the air even though your feet are on the ground.
This is the second instalment in my essay series written while in Europe this summer.
