“I have a lot of words… but none of them are adequate.”
In the face of one of the most impressive and inspiring places I’ve been, this was all I could say – other than such erudite expressions as “Whoah…” “That’s insane/unreal/crazy…” & “Holy Crap!” (Sorry moms.)
To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, LuAnn and I headed to the coast of Northern California to spend some time in the redwood forests there. With a minimal plan, and even less of an agenda, we packed the van and hit the road. It was awesome, in every sense of the word.
There is no way a post on my blog can capture and explain either the 25 years of marriage, or the experience of the coastal redwoods, but it was a great trip. Inspiration was everywhere, and for me, that means… words. (And even the lack thereof!)
There was so much going on in my heart and mind over the 2 weeks of this trip, not to mention what the miles on the road and on hiking trails and van camping were doing to my body, that I feel at risk of dumping so much information that no one will want to wade through with me. To be honest, I’m still processing some of the experience and I don’t have the nice, tidy finished product to present yet, but this post will serve as a “fair warning” post. Over the next couple weeks if time allows, I’m hoping to post much more frequently than has been normal here lately as I unpack some of the incredible moments and thoughts.
Hope you’re up for the trip. I’ll try not to overshare (haha!), but you’re probably going to want to buckle up…
“This is insane!”
