Uprooted in Gold

It was that night by the gas station when I felt it. A liquid, a lightness, kind of like the golden air over my shoulder as I sat on the curb. For a moment it was stretched out soft, carrying me with it. The van was parked to my left and Nevada plains lay to my right. The future was spellbound. I was here, and the possibilities were endless.
 
I’d forgotten what it felt like to be a little kid.

Breathtaking Moments: Finding Freedom in Our Vast Planet

It was one of those ideal days where the air was warm and thick, but a breeze blew cool and crisp under the heat of the afternoon sun. I was sprawled out over a boulder the size of a small car, and basking in the glorious sunshine way up high on a mountain peak in the Wind River Range. It had taken days for my family and I to backpack out to these remote mountains, and just yesterday we had left the vibrant life of the treeline behind in favor of the wild extremes of the peaks.

The Ultimate Montana And Wyoming Comfort Expedition

Hike, bike, swim and raft your way around the world with Austin Adventures, on a soft adventure with ages 7+ or on a more challenging trip with teens.

They call it "Big Sky Country," and just one day of hiking in the mountains gave us proof that this was no misnomer. A couple of days of our Austin Adventures were spent in Montana’s Paradise Valley, and again this was proof that Montanans choose their names wisely.
