"Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche easily in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them, but usually I do not understnad..and seldom do they understnad me. I am on of the searches. There are, I believe, millionsof us. We are not unhappy, but n neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hiddern rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter; to share our sadness with the ones we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know. Unless it is to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious but only for life itself and anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevail our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life, everything which is good and beautiful." ~Found in the door of a deserted store in Colorado

Snowshoeing Grand Teton National Park

So I had my first snowshoeing experience on this past Wednesday. It was so much fun and a fantastic workout! Tori and I went up into the Grand Teton National Park. We were not really sure where exactly we wanted to go so we started at Granite Canyon trail head and ended up trail blazing our own trail which was a lot of fun and made us feel very adventurous! We finished our day with some snow angels in waist deep snow...amazing. We realized how effective the snowshoe really is when we took them off and fell to our waist in snow...pretty fun! Also, as a side note, us girls are participating in a snow shoe race in Salt Lake City to benefit breast cancer. Here are some pictures from mine and Tori's snowshoeing adventure...enjoy :)
