As I sat and stared at the photo in today’s quote I felt a longing to be standing back in this creek, Mill Creek, in Moab. I can almost grasp the peace I felt while hiking up this canyon. We didn’t see anyone else during this four hour exploration. It was so exhilarating to anticipate what might be around each turn in this winding canyon. Some turns revealed petroglyphs, others the remains of what could be ancient dwellings. This small cascade of water was my favorite. The sunlight reflecting off the imposing canyon walls reflected on the water and turned the whole scene gold. I remember thinking to myself that if this was my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow I would be totally satisfied. This type of moment is where all of my priorities come together. It is almost impossible not to feel spiritual and connected when standing in a place like this. I felt vigorous and healthy hiking in nature. My family was with me to share the moment and , of course, I had my camera with me. And this is why I always have my camera with me – so I can capture these moments to remind me who I am and how to reconnect with my priorities. This takes me full circle to why I chose the name “Bring the outside in” for my blog and photo business in the first place. The photos on my wall help to ground me when I feel like I am losing myself.
