st. mary's glacier | alice, colorado

One of my favorite things about Hannah is that she's always up for adventures and exploring, big or small. She also always seems to know of the best places to find these adventures. 

For this particular adventure, I had just left my family and loved ones and driven through the great state of Nebraska while Hannah had just put nearly forty hours in in a mere three days... we were both pretty low on energy. 

The hike was gentle. For a while we were the only ones out there... before we knew it, people seemed to be coming out of the trees! It was fun to see all the different people. Nature does things to people. Everyone we encountered was smiling and delightful. There was a young family that especially stood out to me as they had a whole crew of littles, all different shapes, sizes, and colors... most of them were either dressed to the nines or in a costume of some sort. :) I think I'll try that the next time I take a hike too.

It felt as if we were a million miles away from civilization. We really should have been unplugged... These photos are all from my phone, so clearly we weren't, but it was nice to feel that freedom. The air up there was so delicious: crystal clear and oh so fresh. :)

I'm pretty sure she was mocking me for the next few photos, but we were in stitches and the photos just capture how much fun we have together, so I kept them. 

The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we inhabit 
are not only critical elements in the quality of life we enjoy - 
they are a reflection of the majesty of our Creator.
