Corners of the Earth
Over 120 flights, and over 100,000 miles driven has taken me to every state west of the Mississippi this past year. From the sacred pools of Hawaii, to the Alaskan wilderness, to 15 music festivals spread across the country, 3 of which on the same weekend(LA➡ATL➡NY).
I've raced the sun from the Pacific horizon to the Atlantic horizon before the earth made a full rotation, and chased its total ecclipse through the Tetons. I've battled through the extremes of -25 F winter nights, to 115 F summer days, there have been a handful of close calls, each of which have caused me to reflect on who I have become.
I've taken away so much from 2017, I hope I was able to leave a few smiles in my wake.
