Outdoors and Mountains

On The Way to Kebler Pass
Kebler Pass, CO

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...” 
― John Muir

Mountains not only provide us with their majesty but within their valleys and canyons they furnish a solace that souls pine for. Last September my friend Adam Diesi and I  sought the comfort of the Rocky Mountains and the companionship of bold Aspens. We travelled for nearly 500 miles along the back roads until we were greeted by quilted forests of aspens alongside some brethren pine. There we found what our hearts were looking breath taking colors that renewed the spirit and refreshed the mind.

It wasn't simply about capturing beautiful images. It became a journey to a spiritual Katmandu. We absorbed what nature had to offer and ignored the discomforts of camping and leaving behind the simple pleasures of showers, toilets, and warmth. We lived for the moment and the pleasure of seeing and witnessing first hand nature change the linens on its mountain bed. Nature put its spread many times before us and beneath its mountain peaks. It furnished us with the necessary spiritual warmth we sought as we reconnected with spirit and soul.
