Patagonia and Beyond

Patagonia and Beyond- Highlights Part I:

Before John and I ventured off for a 12 day trip to the bottom of South America, I had questions…many, many questions. I came home with many photos, some answers, and even more questions. Our surreal travels got me thinking that maybe this lifestyle of constant curiosity is not for uncovering answers to all my questions, but to uncover a life so full of wonder and awe, I simply marvel in mystery and humility. I plan to blog photos and stories about the places we went. But for now, here are some of our moments in awe.

Before our trip, I yearned for one very specific thing. It was to sit under a clear sky and see deep into the Milky Way. When I stare into the depths of billions of stars, I need no answers, I need only to observe and live. There is so much I want to share (and will)! But most of all I hope this inspires you to find a place where you can see a billion stars.

El Chalten, Patagonia Argentina, Mount Fitz RoyAs I sit here in front of a screen, it’s ironic that I’m about to tell you to turn off the “screen” and go live. But I hope this “screen time” inspires you to turn off the electronics and go explore your beautiful world. I also hope it inspires you to think about how we can preserve the beauty and awe-inspiring places in our everyday lives. We can only love what we know…go get to know your world so you can learn how you can better love it.
