After hiking for twelve hours out of a nineteen hour trek, it was time to watch the sunrise at Dinosaur Ridge. When we first looked out, the mountains were completely covered by clouds, but within an hour the clouds dropped and this was what we saw. It felt like heaven, and you could hear everyone present for this moment screaming and shouting for joy! I’d never seen something so incredible, I had to meditate and have gratitude to have experienced this. Some locals said that they’d never seen the mountains like this, even in their 40+ years of hiking there. (© Ka Ram Shim/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

Made some slow food with my birthday present this past week. Beef stew and ribs with homemade bbq sauce. Sometimes I feel the heavy breathing of adulthood over my shoulder and am too preoccupied to mind. It’s more than OK to own something that could serve a small army. Perhaps that is precisely fate’s plan. Perhaps I just like stew.
How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?”
