Yesterday, I told you about camping inside the walls of a deep canyon. As soon as we could, we moved to a nearby site that was much sunnier! This photo sums up what I love about the west. If you want to get away from it all in a spectacular setting, it's still possible. We completely relaxed in this warm and quiet site.
It's amazing how visiting a new place can inspire me to think. I bet those miners saw many incredible skies like we saw while we visited. However, I wonder if the hardships of their lives made the beauty less intense than it was for us.
