Travel is one 0f my favorite things. I love seeing the varied and beautiful world we live in.  One of the most spectacular spots is Yellowstone Canyon. I love the way the sunlight and shadows cause the walls to radiate, and the color to vibrate. Yellowstone Falls are so large and glorious too.

Evening is such a magical time.  The light and shadows make everything beautiful. Some naturally gorgeous places get better in the morning and the evening. Last year we went on a cross country road trip. I loved it.  We drove through Grand Teton National Park on our way to our hotel in Jackson, Wyoming. The […]

Nature has always been the place that I have felt the most comfortable, and the most close to God.  Listening to the leaves rustle, the chirping of birds and insects, the gurgle of a creek, feeling the breeze on my face, and noticing the beauty all around me makes me in awe of the beauty […]
