“If the earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it.”  

That would be too easy. 

So we travel. 

Some want to experience other cultures, others enjoy time away, and for some it is just wanderlust and adventure.  It is different for everyone. 

Today, I think of the warm sun, the earth under my feet, the fresh ocean air, and water.  These elements (fire, earth, wind, and water), essential to our being, exist in harmonious balance, don’t they?   Funny to think we often try to do the same as we walk through life…and when we travel.

And when we do, we realize how tiny we are in this big world

We can also appreciate the impact of a brutal sun, wind and rain, and how it transforms rocks into the most unique architecture. And if it is geology or history you seek, you are in the right place.

Fiery Furnace, Utah

Have you ever thought about the the importance of the sun’s direction and your proximity to water? To some, it is a matter of life and death.

And to some it is a spiritual place. I promise…there will always be things that take your breath away.

Chocolate Falls, AZ

And other things to light your way.

Note to Self…Travel.
