The View from Up Here
Today was the halfway point of my conference, and an opportunity to see the surrounding area. With some other members of the conference, I rode the bus for a hike to North Cheyenne Canyon. The bus had the festive air of a school field trip as we all chatted excitedly and ate our bag lunches.
We hiked up an empty river basin gorge and the view from up top was really spectacular. The sky was enormous and the air was clean and crisp. The quiet of the hike gave me some time to think about the past few days and the pattern of my life in the last year. It was a nice way to spend some time and enjoy the quiet.
