halfway there~

(*you could say life is anadventure, but what better way to experience the magnitude and greatness of the outdoors and our CREATOR than to venture into the wilderness of the wild, wild West . . . maybe a little less wilderness and a little less wild, but i am definitely geared up
. . . for ADventuring west with the best trail-blazer i know, my DAD)

last week i had the privilege of spending 9 days with my sister and dad in "bIG Sky Country" Montana. following the footsteps of two american aDventures, lewis & clark, we paddled 47 miles and hiked over 8 miles along the missouri river in just 3 days, a rejuvenating 3 days without cellphones/TV/radio/computers and city noise. i was amazed at how my ear begin to differentiate between the bird calls and subtle sounds of nature. leaving inspired and soothed by the undulating prairie grass, the floating "cotton" from the cottonwood trees, and the magnitude of the white-cliffs, i hope to return again someday!
i was most of all grateful for the moments with my father and sister; to experience something gReat and to sHare it with such special people in my life!
