The maintains don't make us feel small, they remind us of that reality.
This park, I can't say enough good things. Ryan (@r_hedger
) had been droning on and on about these mountains for as long as I can remember and now I can see why. He is always steering #thebusonward
toward mountain ranges and expanses that put our fragile little bodies into perspective. Maybe it's his height or background in philosophy, but I'm starting to understand his constant pursuit of solitude in these massive and powerful environments.
Also,this hike was absolutely amazing. I made Ryan pack the bear spray and stressed out about dangers for the first hour, but the colors and landscape of Paintbrush Canyon were mind blowing. The Tetons are incredible.
Have you been to the Grand Tetons?
Where do you find solace?
