The last morning waking up with the sun, surrounded by mountains, cool high altitude air, dirt beneath my feet, the lingering smell of burnt firewood from the night before... it was back to the city after this. I always try to soak in the last day as much as I can. The only sounds I hear are critters scurrying about as I look up to see large birds soaring through the sky, no large buildings to get in their way, no traffic jams with honking cars. It is utterly peaceful, calm, tranquil; harmonious and beautiful. I'll miss this.
